The healing power of unselfed love

The first chapter of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, begins with this sentence: “The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,—a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love” (p. 1). That sentence contains important components for redemption and healing, ones that should not be ignored. An unselfed love is one such essential ingredient. Spiritual love is what opens our thought to man’s spiritual perfection and the divine power that heals.

When there seems to be resistance to healing, it often comes in the form of self: “I’m not good enough,” “I don’t know enough,” “I’m too busy,” “I’m too proud,” “I’m too discouraged,” “I’m too old and tired,” “I’m not a good example.” These are all very self-focused thoughts.

Can our harmony be invaded?
