321 — WATCH lest in describing the healing in Christian Science, you leave God out. Often students will say, “I healed that patient by uncovering this or that error, or by realizing this or that truth.” Where does God come into the picture? Rather should they always indicate that the Truth flooded in to heal the patient, because they made a channel of themselves by getting out of God’s way. In filling your coal bin, there are three things that are necessary. The load of coal, a chute, and an entrance into the cellar. In Science the practitioner makes of himself a channel for God. Then he makes a demonstration to open the patient’s thought, so that it is receptive to Truth. Then the Truth floods in and heals him.
