Finding the real cause—why you or someone else can be healed

From the May 1987 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Has it ever quietly dawned on you that someone you wanted very much to help through Christian Science probably needed to correct something wrong deep in his or her own thinking? And has it ever seemed to you that this person just wouldn't let go of his errors and therefore you couldn't reach him? For example, you might have reasoned that because you couldn't manage to change the aspects of a person's character contributing to the problem, healing was blocked. If we have got into the habit of thinking this way about cause, we're apt to have more reasons for not healing than for healing.
