Healing in the Office
In office experience we may encounter a variety of situations where healing is required. Excessive work loads, inadequate staffs, personality conflicts, disorganized management, are some familiar conditions.
The action of healing in our office begins with us. Christian Science teaches us the challenging fact that if we are experiencing difficulty of some sort, it is not just something or someone outside ourselves that has to be changed or corrected or healed. Rather, it is, to some degree, our own thinking, our own view of people and conditions that needs to be improved. I had a small proof of this some years ago when it became necessary for me to hire an assistant. This was my first experience in interviewing applicants, and I promptly hired a certain girl for the job. And just as promptly, it appeared that she was unable to do anything to my satisfaction.
By the end of the first week we were both seriously disturbed about the situation. During the weekend I tried to get my thinking right, acknowledging that there is only one Mind, not many minds, and that this one Mind is the source of all good—all ability, understanding, comprehension—and thus is perfectly capable of supplying the right ideas for any task—and every task. I saw that man is spiritual, the perfect reflection of Mind, not an imperfect, inadequate mortal. I prayed for some time along these lines, until I felt free and happy about the situation.
