REDISCOVERING CHRISTIAN SCIENCE

"I read Science and Health and was amazed at what I found"

I Was raised in Christian Science and attended the Christian Science Sunday School regularly all through my growing-up years. But when I was in college, during some very challenging times, I left Christian Science, because it seemed to me that man was a combination of mind and matter, whereas Christian Science teaches that man is wholly spiritual. I wasn't sure whether God existed or not. In looking for something I could believe in, I investigated meditation and parapsychology.

In meditation I was striving to calm my thought and focus without distraction on the primary essence of my being, without really knowing what that essence was. I was emptying my thought of distractions, but what I was supposed to focus on seemed nebulous. I enjoyed the mental discipline, but increasingly I felt that meditation wasn't bringing me any closer to spiritual wisdom.
