The coronavirus seems to have a tight grip on the world, and everyone is trying to wriggle free of it. Those of enlightened Consciousness are asking, “What can I do to help the world?” Others are asking, “As one alone, is there any point in praying?”
Reader, you are not powerless. You, knowing that God is All, have all the Power of God on your side. You can’t ask for more, but you have to know it. Don’t believe for a second that you lack enough understanding and knowledge to be of help in these seemingly dark times. You know all you need to know.
For now, I’m turning your attention to 2 Timothy verse 7:
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and a sound mind.”
Wonderful! But the gold in this verse is in the spiritual Truth that lies beneath the words. Let’s you and I do a little digging and see what we find.
The Fearless Mind
You know there is only One Presence – God. Necessarily, there must be, and is, only One Mind! God is this Mind. This Mind is your Mind. It is the Mind of every Identity on the face of this planet. This Mind is the “sound mind” that Paul writes about in his letter to Timothy.
The One Mind – your Mind – knows Itself to be All. It knows there is no other Presence to oppose or threaten it. For this reason, it is a fearless Mind. What is there to fear? No-thing.
Do you really want to help? In your daily contemplation of God’s Allness, know that the One Mind is the Mind of all. Know that despite all appearances, there is (and can be) no fearing Mind spooked by the appearance of a viral epidemic. Despite the mask-wearing faces you see on the screen, and the panic-stricken voice you hear on the phone, know that there is no mind operating in fear. There is only One Mind.
For the next several days, contemplate the ideas you’ve just read. This will help, but there’s more to consider.
Spiritually Healing The World
You want to help heal the world? Then, this question must be answered: What is spiritual healing?
Spiritual healing is the Revelation of God’s Allness right where sickness appears to be. That’s all it is.
For years Alistair McCrory suffered with a lung disease. After a few steps from the bedroom to the bathroom he had to stop to rest. At the suggestion of a friend, Alistair called a Practitioner for spiritual healing.
Did the Practitioner pray to remove diseased lungs and replace them with healthy lungs? Sounds ideal, but that’s not how spiritual healing works. No! The Practitioner turned completely away from caller and complaint to focus her attention on God’s Allness. At some point, she attained an absolute certainty that God Activity is all that is going on – anywhere.
That certainty, or Revelation, is the healing. Soon, Alistair called back. “What did you do? I am completely healed.” Spiritual healing is simply the healing of a mis-perception that something is going on other than God.
Does Size Matter?
Indulge me for a moment while I ask you some simple questions. They’re going somewhere wonderful.
Imagine that you’re sitting in front of table with only two white golf balls on it. Someone puts two more on the table. How many golf balls are there? Four. That’s the principle of mathematics: two plus two equals four.
Now, forget the golf balls. Imagine you’re standing outdoors. Two elephants walk in front of you. A few seconds later, two more elephants arrive on the scene. How many elephants are there? Four. Again it goes back to the basic principle of mathematics. The size of the object involved does not change the principle.
Similarly, Spiritual Principle (God is All) does not change because of the size of the appearance. Neither does the healing approach.
A zit on the face is a flaw. But it can’t be. The Spiritual Principle states that Omnipresent Perfection (God) is all. The zit is nothing, and because the appearance appears to be very small in scale, it’s easy to perceive its nothingness.
A virus is frightening and threatening the health of the citizens of the world. That’s the appearance. It is as much nothing as the zit. Go back to the golf balls and the elephants. In this case, the zit is the golf ball and the virus is the elephant. The size of the appearance does not make the virus less NOTHING than the zit.
Realizing the nothingness of nothing is all there is to spiritual healing whether it pertains to an individual body, or the body of an entire planet.
Rather than praying to heal the world, let your Consciousness reveal more clearly that Omnipresent Perfection is the only Presence, Power and Evidence. Let your Consciousness reveal with unshakeable certainty the Only-ness of God right where a life-threatening virus seems to be.
