Cause and Cure
Many have proved that an important step in Christian Science healing is to realize that disease does not have a physical cause. But this does not mean we should look elsewhere, say in human thought, for its cause. Instead we need to understand what Mrs. Eddy tells us in Science and Health: "What is termed disease does not exist. It is neither mind nor matter." Science and Health, p. 188;
It is necessary to realize that disease has no real existence, for under the heading "Disease Unreal" Mrs. Eddy writes: "The unreality of sin, disease, and death, rests on the exclusive truth that being, to be eternal, must be harmonious. All disease must be—and can only be—healed on this basis." No and Yes, pp. 4—5; In the first paragraph under this heading she explains, "Sin and disease are not scientific, because they embody not the idea of divine Principle, and are not the phenomena of the immutable laws of God."
A recent healing proved to me how effective it may be to abandon looking anywhere for the cause of an injury. While scraping off some old wallpaper that was very firmly stuck on, I felt severe pain in my shoulder and had to stop the work. It appeared as if the continuous hard scraping in awkward positions had torn a ligament. I turned to Christian Science for healing, but the pain kept me from sleeping for a few nights.
