Chicken and Egg

Which came first?

In treating the sick the answer to this question can mean the difference between slow and quick response.

I was in pain and the pain made me angry. But when I prayed to overcome anger, the pain was healed. Why? Because the anger was there before the pain came, even though it didn't make its appearance until after. Where was it? In my bag of tendencies. I tended to react to pain with anger. The tendency was an error of belief about myself. It was not a fact of my true being, but I had accepted it as fact. I did not originate the notion of anger-response, but I accepted it, and blamed it on the pain.
