For several years, I have been unable to read anything. Even though I have need of glasses and so forth, I just couldn't get through anything and my concentration wouldn't last. I have had to do my Bible Lesson via tapes while I read along, and it has been very difficult. But when I was sent a copy of the address, I took it back with me for a month-long-stay away from home.
I have been working with a practitioner on everything to do with my will and estate planning and this has been a tough challenge for me.
But then I started on this year’s Association address and I could concentrate perfectly.
I read it in the space of only two days, finishing it yesterday. And I plan to read it again, before I leave for home.
It has been a revelation to me. This address is remarkable. A very big first for me in several years. I had no idea what it was about, even though I studied the references, attended Association, and appeared to be awake and listening the entire time. I thought that I had heard every word during Association, but I just had no idea. The only words I can think of to describe it is that it was very grown up, sober, and healing. It was a wonderful address and I am so very grateful for it.
I hope you can realize what a wonderful break-though this was for me. My practitioner and I have been working with the idea from Science and Health, by Mary Baker Eddy, “All is under the control of the one Mind, even God.” (S&H 544:16-17). When I wake up in the middle of the night and think about my will (estate planning, a whole change of life and getting rid of everything), this sentence from Science and Health has been very helpful.
