Pain-free and burn-free

My husband and I were cooking dinner together one evening, and were at that critical stage in which everything needs to come off the stove at one time. Inadvertently, I reached for the hot handle of a pan without using a potholder. My initial reaction, without much thought, was to immediately thrust my hand under a stream of cold water—but only for a fraction of a moment before I rejected that approach and pulled my hand out of the water.

What went through my thought so quickly was a conclusion that appears throughout Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, a textbook on healing written by Mary Baker Eddy: that matter isn’t a real entity, and therefore is not a lawgiver to man. Matter is a projection of mortal thought, and not at all the creation of God, divine Mind.
