After elementary school, which I completed successfully, my parents thought it would be good to enroll me in a private high school with a good reputation for the quality of its teaching. But when I started the year in this new school, I couldn’t master the material and that’s when I was gripped by a great fear.
My father suggested that I see a Christian Science practitioner so I could quietly pray with his support. So I went to the practitioner. He reassured me with spiritual truths that reminded me of the nature of my true identity. I understood better that I could not be ruled by fear because I was a child of God and expressed only the totality of God in which there is neither fear nor failure to understand any courses. As a child of God, I was a complete idea, with qualities such as intelligence, wisdom, insight, attention, reason, understanding, expression, accuracy, precision, appreciation, depth, power, and obedience. The practitioner even wrote these qualities down on a piece of paper so that I could think about them every day and, most important, know that I always had them in me.
