One day at noon when I just arrived home from a Sunday School meeting, and as I was relaxing on a chair, suddenly I felt an intense pain. I dared not even inhale deeply, because of how I felt at that moment, but I did not tell anybody about my condition.

Carefully I rose from my chair and very slowly proceeded to my room. There I prayed the Lord's Prayer and pondered "the scientific statement of being." The opening words of the statement are (Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all." I know mortal mind wanted to persuade me to see this illusion as real, but I held fast to the truth and did not let error enter my thought. I know there is only one Mind that governs and that Mind is God; there is no other mind to harm me or control me, and I am always protected and taken care of by that one Mind. Only good is unfolding and going on—continuous, harmonious, and uninterruptible good.
