Day 8: February 6
The thought for today is HEALING.
Last year at this time, I read Joel Goldsmith’s “The Art of Spiritual Healing.” The book was life-changing for me. Though the concepts presented there were principles that I already knew from my years of study as a Truth student, they seemed to find new life for me through Goldsmith’s writing.
More and more, science is learning of the spiritual and psychic component to our overall health and well-being. Much of our physical distress has an emotional and/or mental foundation to it. We carry old grudges, unforgivingness, anger, bitterness, regret, and traumatic memories, all of which play themselves out in our physical experience if we do not deal with them. The healing you and I need is a healing of consciousness; to join in communion with the Source of our Being. No matter what the apparent conditions or circumstances of our lives, no matter what we have experienced – whether we judge it good or bad – we will never have inner Peace until we consciously reunite with the Source of Peace. When we enter into conscious communion with Divine Spirit, all else comes into harmony.
It is through the recognition of Spirit as Perfect Life, Perfect Substance, and Perfect Being, and that we are One with this Spirit – this Perfect Life, Substance, and Being – that our lives transform. There is no experience of wholeness (holiness) without it. “Be Perfect, as your heavenly Father is Perfect,” Jesus told his followers. You are already Perfect. Perfection is That from which You came; Perfection is what You Are. Jesus did not say “become” Perfect; he said Be Perfect. The healing of your consciousness allows you to see this vital Truth: there is nothing to heal because you are whole (holy) and complete. This is your true nature. This is your divine destiny.
Where is this heaven in which the Father (Source) dwells? Jesus taught that the kingdom of heaven is within you. It is a state of mind; of consciousness. The kingdom of heaven is the point of consciousness where you experience the kingdom of God (the Perfection of God, All that God Is). Your experience of the kingdom of heaven is the degree to which you experience the kingdom of God (which is perfection) in your consciousness. This perfection of consciousness is not something you need to try to achieve; rather, it is something to which you become attuned.
“But you, when you pray, go into your room (your subconscious mind) and close the door; and when you have shut the door (shut out external stimuli and entered a state of deep meditation), pray to your Father who is in the secret place (realize a state of Oneness with the Source within you). For your Father knows your needs before you ask.” ~ Jesus, from the Sermon on the Mount.
“Do not be afraid or anxious, for it is your Father’s perfect pleasure to give you the kingdom.” ~ Jesus
Seek first the kingdom (seek communion with Source), Jesus taught, and all of these external things you seek after will take care of themselves. You will manifest your Peace. You will experience well-being and a healing of perceived afflictions.
I spend time today and everyday in silent communion with the Father-Mother Presence within me, the Source in Whom I live and move and have my Being. As I raise my consciousness in realization of my Oneness with this Presence, I know that I am freed from any and all afflictions of mind, body, emotion, and spirit. I Am Perfect as my heavenly Father-Mother is Perfect. And so It Is.
