Several winters ago I fell on ice as I endeavored to move a trash can that was stuck to the ground. My feet slipped out from under me and I landed hard on my right hip, injuring my left shoulder and my right elbow in the process. I lay there stunned for a few minutes. As my thinking began to clear, I affirmed that there are no accidents or pain in God's spiritual man—my true selfhood. I then realized that because of the lateness of the hour and the cold, no one was on the street, so it would be necessary for me to get back to my motel office (half a city block from where I was) on my own.

I got to my feet by hanging on to the trash can and mentally hanging on to the spiritual truth that divine Love is always sustaining man. (To material sense, my arm and shoulder were numb. Also, my right leg seemed abnormally extended.)
