Spiritually unmoved, not upset

If something goes wrong, does it seem natural to get upset about it? We may sometimes think so. But there is an alternative. Let me share an experience along these lines that taught me a valuable lesson.

When I was sick with the flu some time ago, it really bothered me because I felt that by applying my understanding of Christian Science I should have been able to prevent the illness. Now I had to deal with not only the flu but also with my frustration about it. I did this by prayerfully turning to God.
