Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, a book written by Christian healer, Mary Baker Eddy, contains this remarkable statement:
"In proportion as matter loses to human sense all entity as man, in that proportion does man become its master."Could this be true? My experience has convinced me that it is! To give one example: One time while camping in the Trinity Alps of California, I was digging a latrine for our campsite and, foolishly, I was wearing only sandals. In my carelessness, I struck one of my big toes with the spade I was digging with. As you might think, the pain was extreme and the evidence of injury convincing. But just previous to this incident, I had been contemplating the above statement by Eddy. As I turned my thoughts to what Science and Health explains is the real entity of man - spiritual, made in God's image and likeness - the pain and bleeding completely ceased. I found that I could walk freely and the next day I easily hiked several rugged miles to a beautiful, remote waterfall.
You can find out more about the real entity of man by reading Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. The book can be read online, purchased from major booksellers, or read, borrowed or purchased at a Christian Science Reading Room. The Reading Room in Evergreen, Colorado is located at 4602 Plettner Lane.
