Healed after fall while hiking

I have experienced great progress in Christian Science over the past couple of years. It began with the inspiration attained through preparing for and attending my annual Christian Science association meeting in 2020. Our study assignment during the year leading up to this meeting brought me to the understanding that there is only one Mind, God, and that in reality it is impossible for anything else to have power. Then, the meeting itself gave me a higher understanding of spiritual reality. I thought about, saw, and felt God’s love, abundance, and beauty as never before. I understood more clearly that there is no ebb and flow of God’s goodness—it is constant.

I did not want to lose sight of this heightened understanding, and I knew that consistent Christian Science study and practice was the way to hold on to it and go further. By deeply committing myself to this work, I have gained so much. The Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings have become my best friends. Knowing each day that God is my Mind, being guided by God’s direction, sets my day in the right direction. The more committed I am to regular prayer and study, the less time it takes for me to feel God’s allness. I understand this to be the mental and spiritual watching that we are instructed to do by Christ Jesus (see Mark 13:37).

This brings me to a healing that I know came about because of this greater commitment to Christian Science. My son and I had gone camping. We hiked up a mountain at a granite quarry. On the way down, I was suddenly filled with the realization of God’s allness—that God is the
only I am.
