Once a student declared in Mrs. Eddy’s hearing, “It isn’t difficult to destroy mesmerism, when you see it hasn’t any power.” Mrs. Eddy corrected her by saying, “If God is All, there is nothing to destroy. There is nothing but God and what God creates. I have to go back to the book and so must you.”
To be scientific according to Science and Health, you must know that there is no mesmerism of any kind and never has been, and that you cannot be deluded into thinking that there is or has been. As God’s child you have no capacity or desire to be mesmerized, and you cannot be tricked into acknowledging its existence or operation in any form.
