TO THE MEMBERS OF THE CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST ASSOCIATION



   My address before the Christian Scientist Association
has been misrepresented and evidently misunderstood
by some students.  The gist of the whole subject
was not to malpractise unwittingly.  In order to be
sure that one is not doing this, he must avoid naming,
in his mental treatment, any other individual but the
patient whom he is treating, and practise only to heal.
Any deviation from this direct rule is more or less

dangerous.  No mortal is infallible, - hence the Scripture,
"Judge no man."

   The rule of mental practice in Christian Science is
strictly to handle no other mentality but the mind of
your patient, and treat this mind to be Christly.  Any
departure from this golden rule is inadmissible.  This
mental practice includes and inculcates the commandment,
"Thou shalt have no other gods before me."
Animal magnetism, hypnotism, etc., are disarmed by
the practitioner who excludes from his own consciousness,
and that of his patients, all sense of the realism
of any other cause or effect save that which cometh
from God.  And he should teach his students to defend
themselves from all evil, and to heal the sick, by
recognizing the supremacy and allness of good.  This
epitomizes what heals all manner of sickness and disease,
moral or physical.
