'I just wanted to learn'

My meeting with him was brief. I remember very little of what he said about taking a class in prayer-based healing. He was a Christian Science teacher and healer. But I recall coming away from that appointment with the distinct impression that this class would be one time in my life when I could totally submerge myself in the search for truth. That idea struck a chord deep within me.

When I eventually took that 12-lesson course called Christian Science class instruction, even with that idea of submergence in mind, I somehow thought that my purpose was to gain a body of knowledge. I would learn how to heal through prayer. That did happen. But somewhere along the way I realized that this classroom work, and the following years, was much more about learning how to learn. The truth that I wanted to swim in flows to each of us straight from the divine source, One to one, constantly. Even a gifted teacher does not stand between the learner and the informing Mind.
