"ABSENT FROM THE BODY ... PRESENT WITH THE LORD"
My healing was slow. I visited the Christian Science practitioner's office daily for almost a year, read little else but the Christian Science textbook, abandoned all social intercourse; and at the expiration of the first year I had found real health. It was an understanding of God, and I had glimpsed in a measure what Paul says: "We are ... willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." This spiritual understanding of divine Mind lighted the way. Permanent deliverance came as I, through patient study, found the attributes of God and made an effort to let that Mind be in me "which was also in Christ Jesus." The way has not always been clear, nor has it been free from defeats as well as triumphs; but it has brought me peace.
