Throughout my life I had had many physical healings by relying on God. When it came to problems with teeth, however, I had had only some success. So, five years ago, when I had an abscessed tooth, I decided to go to a dentist, and not rely on Christian Science. That was Friday, and the soonest I could see a dentist was Monday. Sunday night, the pain got so bad I couldn't sleep. I sat up in bed and grumpily said, "All right, I'll handle the case in Christian Science." Then a host of thoughts from God poured into my consciousness!

The first was a statement from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy: "God never endowed matter with power to disable Life or to chill harmony with a long and cold night of discord" (p. 378). This gave me hope and a sense of dominion. I understood that matter could not ache, or be swollen. I saw clearly that matter could no more feel pain than could the pavement on the street. Matter is inert, mindless.
