During the last quarter of my senior year an instantaneous healing prefaced one of the most joyous and fruitful years of my life. I was finishing my college education a quarter later than my classmates, as I had taken time off during my junior year. That spring I was undaunted as I watched my friends go through the graduation ceremony. It was not until the end of the summer that I experienced a curious anxiety about returning to college.
Sometime before the day of class registration, my skin developed a rash that slowly spread over my entire body. I became increasingly distracted by a burning sensation, and I was soon unable to go about my enrollment duties or even to study. I sought a quiet place on campus where I studied "the scientific statement of being" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The first words are (p. 468), "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter."
When my thought had become clearer and quieter, I called a Christian Science practitioner. She assured me that my union with God, my only source of being, could never be interfered with. She also pointed out to me that my final quarter provided opportunities and friendships that were new and unique. I became completely absorbed with listening and opening my thought to possibilities for accomplishment—avenues of expression—that could be mine as a reflection of God, the infinite source of my being. My thought continued along these lines for some time after I hung up the phone.
