For three years after my discovery

We gladly welcome your comments on our Forum and Bulletin Board but we do maintain the right to edit and/or take down anything we feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    “For three years after my discovery, I (Mrs. Eddy) sought the solution of this problem of Mind-healing, searched the Scriptures and read little else, kept aloof from society, and devoted time and energies to discovering a positive rule….” (S&H) In this one statement Mrs. Eddy is giving us a small glimpse into what she did in order to write our textbook, Science and Health. There are five simple steps listed – (1 she sought the solution; 2)searched the Scriptures; 3)read little else; 4)kept aloof from society; and 5) devoted her time and energies to discovering this positive rule. I know we all want to understand Christian Science to a greater degree and many are in search of healing – physical, financial, emotional. Perhaps if we incorporated even half of the devotion Mrs. Eddy shows to us in this one sentence our progress would be much greater.

    Thank you so much for this reminder! It brought me to re-read “Improve your time” on page 230 of Misc. Writings.

    It starts out: “Success in life depends upon persistent effort, upon the improvement of moments more than upon any other one thing.”
    Food for thought!

    It concludes with this quote: “Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.”

    After reading this beautiful Lesson a couple of days I realized that the Angel in Rev.10 says to take the ‘little book’ and then do exactly what Mrs. Eddy did for three years as outlined above.

    Thank you very much for these posts:)

    Thank you also to the teaching here at Plainfield because in the past it seemed like all my studies and reading was with unseeing eyes. Once in a while I got enough of a glimpse to keep me going but now can better understand and apply Christian Science.

    Too bad I didn’t have this level of consciousness when I did keep ‘aloof’ from the ‘other’ Christian Science and did a lot of reading on my own. But I’m grateful even for that because it shows how important ‘sharing’ God and Christian Science is; I couldn’t do it with understanding in a vacuum. Also reading the Bible and Mrs. Eddy’s writings with the correct desire is much and never a waste of time:)
