Dyslexia healed

It’s often said that fear is a state of mind. In one person’s mind, dangling over a cliff on a rope causes fear, while another individual may enjoy the experience. I used to teach abseiling (or rappelling) and was of the latter mind-set. For me, fear was having to read in front of others, or write something for someone else to read. I felt that my writing and speaking skills were nonexistent, and this caused my self-image to wither. Furthermore, in 1970 an educational psychologist diagnosed me as dyslexic. For years I accepted that there was really nothing I could do to escape the tyranny of this disability.

Yet, despite my apathy, God was present the whole time revealing to me that I could achieve more, that I was capable of overcoming the delusion of a slow tongue and a crippled mind. As Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, “Science reveals the possibility of achieving all good, and sets mortals at work to discover what God has already done; …” (p. 260).
