Treatment in a psalm

God sends us each hour, each moment, the thoughts we need for spiritual progress. But only as we remove the false sense of self do we heed these messages, apply them, and heal by their presence in our thinking. Insights may come to us through a Bible verse, a sentence from Mrs. Eddy's writings, a line from a hymn, an article in a Christian Science periodical, or from a moment of complete surrender to the wisdom of Mind, our Father. We may have heard the statement before, but at this particular moment it has a new meaning—a special clarity, the touch of the Christ.

The psalms are full of many beautiful healing themes. Once I was a victim of misunderstanding, accused of faults I did not feel were even humanly true about me, let alone about the spiritual self I was endeavoring to demonstrate daily. Charges that I was selfish, greedy, unkind, were hurled at me by someone I much loved. After this, everything seemed off-balance and out of focus.

Is there a panacea?
