You don’t have to give in

I was losing consciousness; darkness was closing in fast. I had just fallen hard backstage in a theater. At that moment, the overriding temptation was to accept the darkness, just go with it, let it happen. It seemed too hard to resist the pull. But a startling thought suddenly roused me: I can’t let this happen. Everyone knows I’m a Christian Scientist. I can’t let them think God isn’t here, governing me at this very moment.

Instantly, everything shifted. I was fully conscious, able to get up and continue with the rehearsal. I was unharmed, with no vestige of any reaction—no shock or pain, nothing.
