Treating Disease with Sudden Dismissal

Are you afraid of sickness because it feels real? Or are you afraid you don't know how to treat it? Or didn't you know that you can treat it? Well, you can, and here is a very good way: "Treat a belief in sickness as you would sin, with sudden dismissal. Resist the temptation to believe in matter as intelligent, as having sensation or power." Science and Health, p. 218; This is an example of the practical truth given in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.

This may sound a bit difficult to do. But we have control over the kind of thoughts we think, or what we accept as true—if we choose to exercise this control. If honest, you wouldn't think of taking something that didn't belong to you, just because someone suggested it. You would dismiss the notion immediately.
