Divine Science was founded in 1885 by Malinda Elliott Cramer of San Francisco, California, who was healed of her infirmities after receiving a vision of God's all-encompassing goodness. An invalid for 23-years, Mrs. Cramer turned to God when the physicians failed her and received the 'miracle' she had been seeking.
"The answer to my earnest inquiry, as to whether there was any power that could heal me, was an all absorbing realization of a Presence not heretofore realized. I realized It to be my Life, my Being, my health, knowledge and power. It was a 'consuming fire' in that all things became It. Simultaneous to finding myself in God, I experienced the indrawing of all things; that is, that all are embraced within one eternal God and Father, or One Infinite Source and Cause, and as I looked out over the Infinite's Creation, I beheld what to me was 'a new heaven and a new earth.'
"There was before me a six-pointed star, pure and clear as diamond light; its center calm and clear as pure crystal, and radiating the Light of Life. My experience was that the bliss of Being [God-spirit] is the most perfect peace imaginable. Do you wonder at my earnestness in preaching this gospel of freedom, or at my determination to do all in my power to forward this movement of Truth and extend it throughout the world, and bring all to a knowledge of the Truth of Unity and Brotherhood?"
