It happened during a short bus tour—one night I had a nightmare about attending my own funeral. And when I returned home, I felt very close to passing on.

Without warning I found I'd lost all desire for food, and began to lose weight. I couldn't reach, bend, stand straight, or walk without limping. People began to be concerned about my weight loss and obvious difficulty with walking. I was confused and, surprisingly, angry. I was so miserable that I almost didn't care if I continued to exist.

However, I did know I was in trouble, so I asked a Christian Science practitioner for help. He at once prayed to address the alarming evidence of deterioration in my mental and physical condition. I was told that God's work is already established and functioning harmoniously. Right here, right now, man is expressing perfection. Present perfection! I had wrestled with that spiritual fact before, and had not felt worthy enough to admit its implications for me.
