One culprit that can send the healing process into seemingly endless and unnecessary innings or overtimes is a misapprehension of what it is that needs healing. One cruelly puckish aggressive mental suggestion of mortal mind is the red herring that it should even be obvious to a dolt that it is matter that needs healing when the body is in revolt, whereas we learn in Christian Science that it should be plain to a Mortimer Snerd that there is no something in nothing (matter) eligible for healing despite a seemingly vivid, but vacuous, melee of affliction.
An eraser does not correct a botched computation. Computation and correction are mental processes, which may be expressed on a sheet of paper, but those visible numbers, correct or incorrect, are not realities. It is always wrong thinking that needs correcting, i.e., healing, not sensory evidence. An errantly directed pencil point (I know, nobody uses pencils any more, but work with me on this, as Ross Perot used to say) is innocent as a newborn babe, though the flawed human thought guiding it via the hand is not and needs to profit from the salutary effects of the operation of the Christ, Truth, in consciousness.
Corner cutters should not, moreover, delude themselves that a superficial mental combover, outre or otherwise, will "beat the devil", notwithstanding Mr. Trump's bravura coiffure.
