Your Q & A

Following the example set by the question-and-answer columns in the early Journals, when Mary Baker Eddy was Editor, this column will respond to general queries from Journal readers—such as the one below. It will generally not cover questions about how to interpret statements in Mrs. Eddy's writings. There's more information at the end of the column about how to submit questions.

Your Q&A

From the February 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal

My background is in yoga and meditation, and I have always been taught that the best route for one to take when ill (or any time, for that matter), is to completely accept what your circumstances are, breathe into the pain, and watch it change. By accepting the now, and not letting the mind drift into the past or future, peace can eventually be attained because you are not resisting.
