At one time I contracted to build two trawlers

At one time I contracted to build two trawlers. One day during the construction, I fell to the ground from the deck of one of the vessels, a considerable height. During the fall I declared aloud, "God is Love." I was able to pick myself up and go about my Father's business as usual—the business of reflecting God in my daily life.

In analyzing this incident, what it was that had protected me in the fall and enabled me to go about my business, I realized it was the daily recognition of the truth of God and of man's reflection of God. This prayerful work had built up a "bank account" of spiritual ideas, and my need had been met. The reserve of spiritual ideas is built upon the rock of daily Christlike thinking. Mrs. Eddy, speaking of the ever-appearing spiritual creation of God, writes in Science and Health (p. 508), "But the seed is in itself, only as the divine Mind is All and reproduces all—as Mind is the multiplier, and Mind's infinite idea, man and the universe, is the product."
