Distorted hearing corrected

One evening I was watching a TV show with my husband when the sound suddenly seemed to be distorted and echo-like. I asked my husband if he thought there was something wrong with the TV, and he replied that everything sounded fine to him. I continued listening, but something sounded abnormal to me.

The next morning, I was practicing hymns for Sunday School on the piano, and it sounded quite out of tune, especially the bass range. I asked my husband if the piano sounded off-key, and he said it sounded correct to him. The thought came that my hearing was what was broken, not the TV or the piano. Right on the heels of that suggestion, the words “I will listen for Thy voice,” from a poem by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy (Poems, p. 14), came to thought. This angel message redirected my thinking from feeling concern about my hearing to listening for spiritual truths from God. 

After church I began to strongly affirm that because they originate in God, divine Mind, hearing and all other faculties are spiritual, not material. The Bible says, “The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them” (Proverbs 20:12). This helped me understand that hearing and seeing are not dependent on physical organs. I also found a pamphlet titled “Faculties indestructible,” consisting of articles from the Christian Science periodicals, and I read it through several times. The idea that I am the reflection of God was very strong. And I understood that a reflection is a full, not a partial experience. Perfect God is the original, and perfect man—in this case, me—is His reflection. It was clear to me that this reflection could never be distorted or delayed.
