One day, while alone, I lost my balance and fell onto the kitchen floor, hitting my back quite forcefully. I was in much pain and at first couldn't move. I turned to God. Finally I succeeded, with much effort, in getting to my bed. There I read No and Yes by Mrs. Eddy and The Herald of Christian Science.

And from page 428: "To divest thought of false trusts and material evidences in order that the spiritual facts of being may appear,—this is the great attainment by means of which we shall sweep away the false and give place to the true."
