SELF-EXAMINATION – 9

     Self-knowledge, humility, and love are divine strength. Christ’s vestures are put on only when mortals are “washed in the blood of the Lamb;” we must walk in the way which Jesus marked out, if we would reach the heaven-crowned summit of Christian Science.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.358:14-19)

SELF-EXAMINATION – 8

     First, self-knowledge. The physician must know himself and understand the mental state of his patient. Error found out is two-thirds destroyed, and the last third pierces itself, for the remainder only stimulates and gives scope to higher demonstration. To strike out right and left against the mist, never clears the vision; but to lift your head above it, is a sovereign panacea. Mental dark­ness is senseless error, neither intelligence nor power, and its victim is responsible for its supposititious presence. “Cast the beam out of thine own eye.” Learn what in thine own mentality is unlike “the anointed,” and cast it out; then thou wilt discern the error in thy patient’s mind that makes his body sick, and remove it, and rest like the dove from the deluge. “Physician, heal thyself.”

     Let no clouds of sin gather and fall in mist and showers from thine own mental atmosphere. Hold thy gaze to the light, and the iris of faith, more beautiful than the rainbow seen from my window at the close of a balmy autumnal day, will span thy heavens of thought.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.355:12-31)

SELF-EXAMINATION – 7

     The only difference between the healing of sin and the healing of sickness is, that sin must be uncovered before it can be destroyed, and the moral sense be aroused to reject the sense of error; while sickness must be covered with the veil of harmony, and the consciousness be allowed to rejoice in the sense that it has nothing to mourn over, but something to forget.   (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, 352:28-2)

SELF-EXAMINATION – 6

     My students are at the beginning of their demonstration; they have a long warfare with error in themselves and in others to finish, and they must at this stage use the sword of Spirit. They cannot in the beginning take the attitude, nor adopt the words, that Jesus used at the end of his demonstration.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.215:23-29)

SELF-EXAMINATION – 5

     To accomplish this, you must give much time to self-examination and correction; you must control appetite, passion, pride, envy, evil-speaking, resentment, and each one of the innumerable errors that worketh or maketh a lie.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings,  p.137:23-27)

SELF-EXAMINATION – 4

     Self-ignorance, self-will, self-righteousness, lust, covetousness, envy, revenge, are foes to grace, peace, and progress; they must be met manfully and overcome, or they will uproot all happiness. Be of good cheer; the warfare with one’s self is grand; it gives one plenty of employment, and the divine Principle worketh with you, – and obedience crowns persistent effort with everlasting victory.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings,  p.118:21-28)
