At one time, whenever I went to the seashore, I broke out in a rash. Invariably, I would have to stay in the shade. Salves and ointments were not effective in curing the condition. Eventually, I began a renewed, earnest study of Christian Science. When the next beach holiday came along, I wanted to solve the problem with Christian Science.

After exposure to the sun for several days, the rash condition again appeared on my hands and legs. At home I studied the biblical account of spiritual creation in the first chapter of Genesis, as well as passages in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy in the chapter "Genesis." I learned that God's creation is totally spiritual and unfolds as His spiritual ideas. Man is the image of God. No material belief could blemish my true identity as the image of Mind.

In my prayer I saw that I could only be exposed to God's law of love. This spiritual fact, realized, replaced the false belief that I could suffer from exposure to a false law of mortal mind. God, Truth, was a shield to insulate me from the belief that matter had intelligence or could injure me.
