The cyst lost its reality in my consciousness

First printed in the Spanish edition of The Herald of Christian Science, El Heraldo de la Ciencia Cristiana.

One morning I awoke with severe pain in one arm and part of my breast. I couldn’t move my arm, and I found it difficult to stand up. The next day, as required by my employer, I went to the doctor, who informed me that these were symptoms of a cyst. He extracted fluid from my breast and said that if the pain returned, he would have to operate and perform a biopsy to determine if the cyst was benign or malignant.

As soon as I left the doctor’s office I began to pray, declaring that my identity has its origin in God and is therefore spiritual, not material. I remembered that in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy we read that we are not blood and bones, but the image and likeness of God, Spirit, the creative source, divine Love (see p. 475). I was able to calm myself down, and the cyst did not bother me again.
