"It is impossible to lose your mind!"

To the mentally ill whose daily existence seesaws between boredom and the agony of nagging fear, the promise of complete healing may seem incredible. But Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt. 11:28; The God who is omnipotent Love waits to bless each one of us with a tenderness unspeakable. Such Love is worth getting to know. We know and actually feel this healing Love when we learn to see ourselves as God has made us—in His image, the very likeness of Spirit, not matter. When we realize this truth of our identity, we find freedom from mental anguish.

These startling words were spoken to me by a Christian Science practitioner following a disturbing medical verdict by three doctors who had reviewed my case. I was a night fighter pilot in the United States Marine Corps. My record to this point showed a promising aviation career in both Canadian and United States forces, as well as with a major commercial airline. And now here I was, a complete washout, mentally and physically a wreck. Of thirteen pilots who had returned with me to American forces following Pearl Harbor, one other was left alive.
