Theory vs. realization (complete)

Originally published in the March 1, 1890 issue of the Christian Science Series (Vol. 1, No. 21)


Desire to make of use to others my experiences of the efficacy of Christian Science, prompts me to submit the result of a personal effort at self-treatment, begun with little light, and imposed by the urgency of pressing need.

I have known of this blessed Science four years, and more; but, for a long time, while I thought myself benefited and was greatly interested, I failed to trust entirely to its sustaining power, and consequently found only partial relief. My present understanding came to me through recent experiences following a more careful study of the teachings of Science and Health , and a more earnest, determined endeavor to realize them in consciousness.
