Unity began when one unhealthy woman gained the insight that she was a child of God and, therefore, did not inherit sickness. Though she had been sickly all of her life and was near to death, Myrtle Fillmore set aside the opinions of physicians. She spent time every day in communion with the Jesus Christ Spirit and used the power of affirmative prayer. She focused on the healing power of God within every cell of her body and affirmed her health and wholeness. Within three years, her consciousness of helplessness, sickness, and separation from God was healed. Her body responded to her loving thoughts about it. Harmony was established in her mind, body, and affairs. According to spiritual Law, disease is cured when the mind is healed. Accordingly, Myrtle Fillmore was free! She became healthy, vigorous, and lived a long and meaningful life.
