HEARING IMPAIRMENT HEALED
For about two months I had Christian Science treatment, but with apparently no improvement. Finally the practitioner and I decided simultaneously to have the treatments discontinued. At this point I tried to work out the problem. We had two different editions of Science and Health, which I closely compared, finding that the later edition gave me a clearer understanding. I tried to realize that I was reading the absolute truth, that many people had been healed by reading this book, and I thought, Why cannot I? Before finishing the chapter on Prayer the healing came. This demonstration proved to me that "all is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation" (Science and Health, p. 468), for even before I had conversation with anyone the thought came to me very clearly that my hearing was all right. Shortly after this I attended a lecture on Christian Science. Owing to the number of people present, it was necessary to stand up in the middle of the side gallery, but I was able to hear all of the lecture.
A sweet sense of peace has been experienced many times when I remember the words found in our textbook (p. 34), "If Christ, Truth, has come to us in demonstration, no other commemoration is requisite, for demonstration is Immanuel or God with us." I am grateful to God for His faithful disciple, Mrs. Eddy, through whose message to this age humanity is being redeemed in the way Christ Jesus demonstrated.
