healing tests our
discipline, our integrity and our desire. We claim we want spiritual
healing; however, are we willing to give what it takes to achieve it?
Anyone who is master of their being, of their life and of their
decisions learns to stand up strongly for that which they say is vitally
important to them.
If a person is sick he has little difficulty in acting like a sick man,
thinking like a person who is ill and being a patient. If a person is a
success, he acts successful and thinks success in all areas of his life.
Why then is it so difficult-for us to consider that when we say there is
a spiritual principle that tells us that whatever we think about we will
experience in our life and affairs-for us to consistently apply it on a
daily basis in our world of experiences?
It all boils down to the idea that being sick or successful is something
that we can see and touch whereas using an invisible principle is a leap
in belief that is both hard to initiate and maintain.
We can learn to set in motion spiritual healing.
The invisible world of spiritual healing is no different than thinking
about "a minute from now" or visualizing going to the movies
or wanting something so powerfully that "you can taste it."
These are things we all can relate to and have experienced more than
Readily we can close our eyes and "see" anything we desire.
What we see is invisible to our objective view, but we claim we can
actually see it in our mind's eye. Sometimes we see it and believe in it
so completely that it actually is there.
It is easy to "mouth" the idea that our body is the temple of
the living spirit and every organ action and function of our body is
whole and perfect right now. We say originally our body is created whole
and perfect, and in thought we can return to our original purity and
integrity. We admit to our ideal form being flawless. These are things
we tell ourselves time and again, but unfortunately there is no
conviction or belief there. There is no sense of integrity in our
desire-it is, in fact, a meaningless concept. Since it is meaningless we
do not feel uncomfortable thinking of it as a pipedream, a farce and
something that is insignificant of accomplishing.
People who are achievers, people who accomplish their dreams, people who
live in a state of happiness and fulfillment are those who take their
dreams and put power behind them, the power of selfdiscipline, of
personal integrity and the desire to see it done.
We put power behind our dreams every time we listen to our inner voice
that excites us to accomplish something beyond what we have heretofore
considered the norm.
Once we have decided that we want to experience spiritual healing in our
body-depending upon how seriously this is our choice-we will face
This sounds like a rather dramatic response. We attest that, to our
remembrance, this has not happened to us in the past. We say, surely for
a saint or someone who is spiritually illumined it "might"
happen that way.
I say that when we are working with a principle it does not need special
conditions, it only needs application. Application needs diligence, it
needs determination, it needs dedication and it needs discipline. When
we have given these conditions to any choice we expedite through the
universal law of cause and effect, we enjoy the results now.
Indeed, spiritual healing tests our discipline, our integrity and our
desire. Simple, definite, reality-we act upon our choice.
Just as we coldly say to someone who is ill, "Do you want to live
or die?" If the person wants to live we see it done for them now.
If the person wants to die, we see that done for them now. In making
such a dramatic decision we exercise an energy and conviction not done
under all circumstances. Many quickly change from the death rattle to
the life chortle.
Seriously, we experience spiritual healing when we choose to know it. We
are a master at not experiencing it as well as a master of experiencing
it. Either is acceptable and our choice.
It sounds cold. It is cold. It is analytical. It is principle. Principle
does not know emotion or needs, it only knows to act upon whatever it is
we have placed into motion for its expression.
At all times we are the master of disciplining ourselves, disciplining
our thought and disciplining our actions. Thank heaven!
