YOU ARE THE SOLE SCIENCE AUTHORITY FOR YOUR LIVING!
Bruce Manuel leads an exploration of the eye-opening 1965 London Seminar given by Margaret Laird (CSB) — the jumping-off point for the teleconference. In her seminar, she elaborated on the idea that each individual is his own authority in Science. She also answered questions about her 1965 book Christian Science Re-Explored, and commented on differences between its presentation of Science and versions that became increasingly standardized after the 1910 passing of Mary Baker Eddy.
Laird wrote in CSR, “In living my divinity self-consciously as Mind I see myself as the authority and the law to my every conscious experience. I act intuitively, spontaneously, and with intelligence because I have Principle (Reason) for my authority. (See pages xlii and 254)
In each session we will listen together to a series of excerpts from the 8-hour London event, and then “intuitively and spontaneously” explore ideas that surface after each excerpt.
Laird relates the unusual experience of being hospitalized in Tehran with what doctors said was a serious case of double pneumonia. This happened toward the end of her 1961 trip to teach a two-week class in India. Upon arriving in Iran after the class, she says, “I just didn’t care whether I lived or died, I was just so far gone. I was too sick to think, and my traveling companion was too scared. But I got well awfully quick, in a couple of days,” thanks to a startling new insight that she shares with listeners.
Other seminar themes include:
- The value of breaking free of Science clichés.
- Why a book can’t be truly helpful until YOU rewrite it.
- We should drop the concepts of “treatment” and “healing” because the mere belief that there could possibly be any sickness or wrongdoing is all there is to either.
- If Scientists assume students or patients must learn something, they are not living the Love that accurately identifies their “others” as saved by their own divinity, and ready to discover that fact for themselves.
