ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER
When I was 16 , a wonderful lady, who was a Christian Scientist, handed me the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. I was in high school at that time, and we were studying Greek philosophy.
I had been struck by the idea in Plato's book Timoeus that matter is "no thing." And I had been inspired by the teachings of the Greek mystics, who served at the temple of Apollo in Epidaure, where the well-known motto, "Know Thyself," was written on top of the main entrance. To me that was a reminder that we should acknowledge our innate spirituality. So when I started reading Science and Health, I was able to accept immediately its explanations about man and the universe as being spiritual and good, created by a perfect God.
