Quick recovery after bike accident

While I was listening to an online Wednesday testimony meeting from The Mother Church, the First Reader read this passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Every system of human philosophy, doctrine, and medicine is more or less infected with the pantheistic belief that there is mind in matter; but this belief contradicts alike revelation and right reasoning” (Mary Baker Eddy, p. 279). I was reminded of how that text brought the conclusion to a quick healing I experienced some years ago, when I was teaching in north London.

As I was cycling to school, the door of a stationary car was suddenly opened in front of me. I rode into the door and ended up in the road, two or three yards ahead of my bike. I got up, took my bike to the side of the road, and assured the concerned driver that I was all right. He drove off, and then I felt anything but all right. I felt as if I was passing out. 

I leaned back on the wall and closed my eyes and just repeated the word no several times very forcefully. I was sure that I had to totally reject any material evidence of an accident from my consciousness if I wanted to be free of any aftereffects. My conviction was based on the many accounts of healing where individuals had begun with this simple approach when they could do nothing else.
