The other day I picked up The Understanding Series by Lillian DeWaters, and in it she succinctly explains why healing seems to be delayed.
Healing seems to be failing people everywhere. It is very disturbing to them because they cannot understand how this could be. Many say, “Years ago, healing was simple and certain. Now I read and study and am more faithful than ever, yet without perfect results.” Yes, it seems so. Others say, “I accept this great Truth that I am the Self, yet the trouble, expense, or limitation continues.”
The reason for this is that greater understanding is now demanded of us – not to heal diseases, loss, grief, and so on, but to see their utter impossibility to be or seem (appear) to be; to exist or seem (appear) to exist. It is necessary that we abolish any and every discord with and by the awareness and knowledge of its nonexistence.
Reader, note that DeWaters not only says to see the impossibility of trouble, but to also perceive the impossibility of the appearance of trouble. True perception is where both the trouble and the appearance of the trouble are perceived to be non-existent. What’s left? God.
