Two years ago I woke early one morning with an abscessed tooth. Many years before, I had had a similar problem, and I'd had the tooth extracted by a dentist. But that wasn't the way I wanted to go this time.

I knew that God knows man only as the perfect idea He has created. Now I wanted to prove that, as His child, I naturally express that perfection, which includes harmonious action in every aspect of one's being.

I called for help from a Christian Science practitioner, who agreed to pray with me. After I hung up the phone, I reasoned that I was, in reality, the very expression of God—whole, intact, pure, and free—and that my true and conscious being could reflect and manifest only the perfect soundness of Soul. My true substance could not be invaded. Divine Mind was imparting to me, right then, the knowledge that all I could be was the perfect effect of God, who is the one perfect cause.
