    This morning I used the word ‘admit’ to electronically search Science & Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy for the following citation,

    S&H 392:25-3
    “Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously. When the condition is present which you say induces disease, whether it be air, exercise, heredity, contagion, or accident, then perform your office as porter and shut out these unhealthy thoughts and fears. Exclude from mortal mind the offending errors; then the body cannot suffer from them. The issues of pain or pleasure must come through mind, and like a watchman forsaking his post, we admit the intruding belief, forgetting that through divine help we can forbid this entrance.”

    As a by-product, I found word admit appears 54 times in Science & Health. A wonderful exercise to study each occurrence.



    Thank you Debra. I am new to Plainfield and I didn’t realize that was a feature on the digital Science and Health. I love the word choice you used as an example too. I’ll give it a try. Thanks for sharing for those of us that are new. 🙂 Linda



    I am showing my newness again. I tried to do a search through the Plainfield Science and Health link and couldn’t figure it out. Anyway you could give me brief directions? Thanks, Linda



    On the Books portion of our website, click “Mary Baker Eddy” on the menu bar and the page with links to her books will show up. On that page there is the link for the complete Science and Health, which also says “Best option for searching.”

    Once on that page, you can find certain words by typing ctrl-f (on Windows), cmd-f (on Mac) or if you are on a phone there should be three dots or some other way to bring up options that say “Find in page.” Then just type in the term you want to find, and it will let you click through each instance it finds.

    This “find” feature also works on every page of the website, even if you are in an article or another book.
