The logic of spirituality

Once when I was still a teen-ager, I had a fever blister developing on my lip—a minor ailment that is generally supposed to have a course to run. But that morning I carefully read the Lesson-Sermon, as outlined in the Christian Science Quarterly. I have no idea now what the subject was or even what I read, but I noticed before I had finished reading that the trouble was entirely cleared up. The truths presented in the Bible Lesson had purified my consciousness and eliminated whatever needed correction. The harmony that God is always providing man took control, and the discord called a fever blister vanished, which proved that it was in essence an illusion. I do recall that I read with joy and receptivity. My thought was on the truth of being, not on a desired healing. Not long after that I was able to heal my mother of a bad headache through prayer.

The spiritual logic and facts behind such healings need to dawn on us. This unfoldment may not always come too quickly, but eventually, through prayer and the desire for regeneration, we glimpse more clearly that Spirit, God, is divine Being, the only reality and power.

Through spiritual growth and selfless prayer, each of us can gradually come to see that there is an undeniable logic and practicality to the teaching of Christian Science that Spirit is All—infinite and ever present.
