One afternoon while riding my bicycle, I was struck by a car that was coming out of a one-way alley the wrong way. The blow was a powerful one, but I got quickly to my feet and with some effort made my way to the side of the road. Then I affirmed my true spiritual perfection as the child of God. I thanked God for His protecting, loving arms, which are always around me, and my heart was so filled with gratitude for His constant care that there wasn't any room for resentment toward the driver of the car. He had not been aware that the alley was one-way, so he had not intentionally broken the law.

My bike wasn't badly damaged, so after the driver gave me his name and address I finished my ride home. It was a long and painful two miles, but I sang hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal to focus my thought on Spirit and not on matter's claims.
