A reader asked this question:
“If my mortal appearing body appears to be sick, and through spiritual insight it is healed and appears as a well mortal body, isn’t the well mortal body just as unreal as the sick, mortal body? And doesn’t this make a well appearing mortal body as undesirable as a sick appearing mortal body?
Yes! and No! The mortal appearing body is nothing but the Immortal Body mis-perceived. (I really don’t like this word, but it helps in the explanation.) The sick, mortal body is the Whole, Immortal Body mis-perceived. This Immortal Body – your Body – consists of the Light that is the Presence of God.
Pay attention to this! When the body seems to be healed, what stays and what goes? Reader, it helps to answer this question aloud.
The disease appears to go, but the Body remains. The Body remains because the Body is real. It does exist. Your Body is Real! The disease, however, (perceived to be nothing) no longer seems to be.
What has happened here? When the mortal body appears to be healed, the Immortal Body (of pure Light and God Substance) shows forth a little more clearly. Had the awareness of the Immortal Body been totally complete, it would have shown forth as a Body of Pure Light – not merely a “healed” Body.
Never deny your Body. Never accept mortal lies about your Body.
