Some time ago I had a healing of intermittent pain in the wrists. Turning thought toward God, Spirit, I prayed to understand better the statement from Science and Health "banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way you can prevent the development of pain in the body. No law of God hinders this result" (p. 391 ). Each time the pain occurred, I would pray to understand the unreality of pain and therefore gain control over the discord. I endeavored to realize that pain is illusory and mesmeric in nature, that it is an image of thought in so-called mortal mind. After a couple of weeks of my further reading and studying statements from the Bible and Science and Health, and of praying, the pain vanished, for which I am most grateful.

When my dear mother passed on several years ago, I felt grateful for all the good that she expresed throughout her long lifetime, and for the good times we shared together. I studied the meaning of these statements in Science and Health: "Life is real, and death is the illusion" (p. 428 ) and "Life is eternal. We should find this out, and begin the demonstration thereof" (p. 246). I knew that life is continuous and uninterrupted by human events, as Christ Jesus taught us, and I did not experience any period of grief or sense of loss.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
