No Need to Fear the "Sneezing Season"

When the pollen count mounts and the sneezing and blowing begins, it is well to take note of the immunity to allergies that Christian Science promises. The misery of hay fever and related maladies can be stopped in its tracks and healed permanently as the study of this Science alters one's concept of man and his relation to God.

As we grow in the things of Spirit, we see more clearly that man is not a self-animating amalgam of material organs and parts. He is not something whose actions suddenly become uncontrolled by a simple contact with plant pollen. The Bible states that God, divine Love, made "every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew." Gen. 2:5; And Mary Baker Eddy remarks in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, "It is profane to fancy that the perfume of clover and the breath of new-mown hay can cause glandular inflammation, sneezing, and nasal pangs." Science and Health, p. 175;

To free oneself from this phase of human bondage, one must begin by recognizing man's real spiritual identity reflecting the harmony of God, perfect divine Mind. One must understand something of this Mind's infinitude and claim it to be the atmosphere in which he dwells.
