339 — WATCH when you manifest a physical claim and cannot seem to uncover its origin, that you do not forget that it may be animal magnetism’s subtle argument intended to disable you, so that you will cease to do the larger work for the world, by giving you an unimportant problem to obsess you — that of maintaining your own bodily comfort. A student may be tempted to be overconcerned with his own material harmony, so that he forgets or neglects to do the larger work for God. This includes many responsibilities, such as the peace and prosperity of nations, the extension of the Cause of Christian Science, as well as the claims of food, sleep, and the like. An alert student will do daily work for the Bible and Science and Health, to know that these books carry the healing power of Mind.
