  1. “In the wrong working out of an example it is the teacher’s duty to point out where the mistake arose. Diagnosis in mental treatment is for the purpose of discovering why the person thinks as he does, upon what false premise his thought is based, what belief in the opposite of Good he is entertaining.  ~ LSOM 302.3&4  
  2. “…Within the soul, or subjective mind, all the seeds of our thoughts fall, and that most of man’s physical troubles are caused by some inner conflict.” ~ SOM 237.1 
  3. “In spiritual mind healing, we recognize that cause is never material or physical. There is only One First Cause. But it is often necessary for the practitioner to diagnose the thought of his patient; in fact, this is an important point in healing. This is psycho-analysis (from psyche, or soul). Psycho-analysis is the analysis of the soul or subjective mind.  ~ SOM 236.6
