Health is Natural
God’s will for you is to live a very healthy life and to use the great power of your mind to heal your body. Health is your divine birthright. To be healthy is natural. Health is the normal condition of yourself and all creation. Real health is from within, not something to be manufactured from the outside.
Healing is the bringing forth of the perfect Christ ideal that exists in you and everyone. The healthy mind produces the healthy body. Healing is the restoration to divine perfection. It is best promoted by practicing the Presence of God.
Charles Fillmore, the co-founder of Unity, wrote: Thought is the builder of the body. The body is moved by thought. Thought not only moves the external members of the body, it controls the fluids flowing within the body. Man’s body has power to replace worn parts. When it is in harmony it never wears out. The harmony referred to is self-adjustment to the law of Being, to the law of divine nature, to the law of God. It doesn’t matter what you call this fundamental principle underlying all life. The important thing is to put yourself in harmony with it. Nature is not a blind force working in darkness and ignorance. All her works indicate intelligence – mind in action. (Excerpted from Dynamics for Living)
You are Pneuma
Emmet Fox wrote: Your health and the harmony of your whole life will depend entirely on the extent of which you identify yourself in thought with your real self, Pneuma. The Bible tells us that God has made man in His own image and likeness, and that is true, but of course it refers to Pneuma. The limited man that we know could not possibly be the image and likeness of God. Pneuma is the child of God and the offspring is always of the same species as the parent. (From: The Science of Living – In Class with Emmet Fox)
Open Your Eyes!
From the teachings of Eric Butterworth: It is truly startling to see so many people who are lifeless, listless beings, lacking in vitality and energy and enthusiasm for life – startling, when we know that the radiant life of God is within each one awaiting expression. Yet how wonderful it is to know that every one of these individuals can be transformed, healed, revitalized, “changed in the twinkling of an eye”. Seeming miracles of transformation have come when individuals have opened their eyes to a new dimension of life. The next time you feel weak, tired, lifeless, depressed, “down in the dumps,” affirm “I am radiant with life and vitality!” (Adapted from: Life is For Living)
There is only one healing power and that is the power to create new cells and eliminate old ones, a power that is possessed by the innate intelligence or creative forces in living organisms, however evoked.
It is the same power, whether it is invoked by the physician or metaphysician, an affirmation or medication. The healing power is no respecter of persons. It is one and the same used by everyone.
Disease is not, strictly speaking, a thing in itself. It is the absence of something. Health is a natural state. Disease is like darkness. Darkness is not a thing in itself; it is the relative absence of light. Light is positive; it is a thing in itself. When you bring in light, darkness disappears. When you bring in (speak positive, healthy words to your mind and body) disease disappears.
Never treat so-called disease as real. Only God is real and God is the perfect life of your body. When you speak affirmations of Truth for your body, you actually treat your mind, for that is where healing begins and takes place, first.
Spiritual healing occurs when you withdraw attention and power from the appearance of inharmony in your body and place it securely upon God. You may do this by declaring affirmations such as:
I am perfect, whole and well as God created me to be. God, in me, is my perfection now. Every cell of my body is alive with the Life of God.
Remember to love your body. It’s the only one you have this time around. When you love your body, you will think kindly of it and feed it with alive, health-giving nourishing food, and treat it as the wonderful temple of God that it is. Love is the way. – Lovingly, Rev. John
