“Disease, she affirmed, is mental, cultivated in the patient’s own thought. Therefore, to have a lasting cure involves changing thought to a different basis…For Eddy, the basis for all healing was spiritual, not material. She proved that prayer-based treatment begins by aligning the patient’s thinking about themselves in a wholly spiritual way, seeing themselves as the Divine sees them: as spiritual beings who think intelligently, choose wisely, function harmoniously – which guides their daily life in practical, positive ways.

And this prayer-based thinking, this divine Mind-based meditation, led to healing of the physical ailments.”
