One night I read an article in The Herald of Christian Science on the subject of spiritual preexistence. The following morning, in order to reach something on top of a cupboard, I had to climb on a small stepladder. As I came down, I missed a rung and fell backward. My head hit the corner of an open door, and I landed on my back. I cried out, "Father, Father! I am Your dearly beloved." Then, thanks to some insights I had gained while reading the article the night before, I declared from the depths of my heart, before getting up, "Father! I am Your beloved child. I possess only the substance of Spirit, which is as permanent and harmonious as You; I am also as perfect right now as 'when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy'" (Job). I knew that I was in reality a spiritual idea expressing the one Mind, God, and abiding in that substance of Spirit. I affirmed that in reality I was not born of the flesh but of God; that my true substance is eternal, imperishable, indestructible.
The back of my head was bleeding, so I wiped it clean while I continued to pray. Very quickly the blood stopped flowing, the pain in my back stopped, and a bump that had formed on my head soon disappeared.
