through nameless suffering and sacrifice, furnishes its
own proof of my practice.

MISC 351

   I have sometimes called on students to test their ability
and meet the mental malpractice, so as to lift the burdens
imposed by students.
   The fact is, that for want of time, and for the purpose
of blessing even my enemies, I neglect myself.  I never
have practised by arguments which, perverted, are the
weapons of the silent mental malpractice.  I have no skill
in occultism; and I could not if I would, and would not
if I could, harm any one through the mental method of
Mind-healing, or in any manner.
   The late much-ado-about-nothing arose solely from
mental malicious practice, and the audible falsehood
designed to stir up strife between brethren, for the purpose
of placing Christian Science in the hands of aspirants
for place and power.  These repeated attempts of mad
ambition may retard our Cause, but they never can place
it in the wrong hands and hold it there, nor benefit
mankind by such endeavors.
