A Scientific Approach to Love

Many diseases spring from a failure in that vital part of a person's functioning known as love. When one appears to lose a feeling of being loved, or ceases to feel he has a reason to love someone, or the ability to love at all, something happens to the body that often results in disease, either directly or indirectly.

Most religions, especially Christian ones, teach love for one's neighbor, and those who become ill and pray to be well often find their prayers answered in a feeling of greater affection for those around them. But Christian Science approaches differently the problem of one who needs to love more.

One who turns to this religion for healing finds that without love there is no real consciousness of Life. Life is Love—both are synonyms for God. And a consciousness of divine Life is a consciousness of the source and creator of one's very existence as an individual. This is where one finds his health. And when health seems gone, this is where he finds healing.
