Exposed to contagion? What you can do

People here in Australia are worried about the spread of the SARS virus. There's also concern over the possibility that other contagious diseases could be used in our country for terrorist purposes. Government health officials are taking practical steps to guard against the spread of such diseases. And travelers are avoiding countries where the incidence of SARS is high. But there is a spiritual approach—something any of us can do—if we're exposed to contagion. And when I was a university student preparing for end-of-year exams, I was able to prove to myself that in the event of exposure to disease, a spiritual approach is a practical healing method.

Just prior to my taking final exams, my young niece came for a visit at my parents' home. She had been with us only a few days when she came down with chickenpox and had to be taken back home. Shortly after she had left, I developed symptoms of chickenpox.
