No more flu symptoms

All the drug stores were advertising flu shots, and my friends were talking about who was home with the flu. I recognized these as impositions on my thinking—distractions from the fundamental truth that health is spiritual—and did my best to divert my attention. But one evening after a very busy week, I began to feel ill. All the symptoms pointed to this dreaded seasonal illness.

I was alert that evening when images from the drug stores and newscasts came flashing back into my thought. I immediately stopped what I was doing, denied that disease could have any reality in God’s realm of harmony, and began pouring the truth into my thought.

I reviewed what Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, admonishes us to do in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Suffer no claim of sin or of sickness to grow upon the thought. Dismiss it with an abiding conviction that it is illegitimate, because you know that God is no more the author of sickness than He is of sin” (p. 390). On the following page, she also writes, “When the body is supposed to say, ‘I am sick,’ never plead guilty” (p. 391).
