Healing by seeing through "the microscope of Spirit"

The material universe is full of things we can't see materially—even with the help of a magnifying glass or microscope.

Mary Baker Eddy glimpsed this at an early age at school when her teacher asked the class, "If you were to take an orange, throw away the peel, squeeze out the juice, destroy the seeds and pulp, what would be left?" Some of the children said there would be nothing left. Others didn't know. But the young Mary Baker—as she was known before she was married—had a better answer. She said, "There would be left the thought of the orange." See Irving C. Tomlinson, Twelve Years with Mary Baker Eddy (Boston: The Christian Science Publishing Society, 1966), p. 20; Of course, that's true in a relative sense, and this understanding can point us to a deeper truth.
