Injured arm restored
One afternoon, I noticed that my right arm and shoulder had begun to hurt very badly. I remembered running into a wall the day before. I immediately thought of things we had talked about in Christian Science Sunday School, and passages that I had read in the Bible and Science and Health. Before I went to sleep that night, I prayed.
I remembered I once had a Sunday School teacher focus on discussing consciousness during our class time. The ideas shared followed this statement from Science and Health: "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts" (p. 261).
I thought that was perfect. I also got out a Concordance to Science and Health and looked up pain. I found a few helpful passages, such as: "The divine metaphysics of Christian Science, like the method in mathematics, proves the rule by inversion. For example: There is no pain in Truth, and no truth in pain; no nerve in Mind, and no mind in nerve; no matter in Mind, and no mind in matter; no matter in Life, and no life in matter; no matter in good, and no good in matter" (p. 113).
