Series 2 - Lesson 9 - Annotation 8
Why do scars and deformities often remain if the body is being continually made new?
8. Scars and deformities often remain, even though the body is continually made new, because the memory of the experience which caused the scar is still embedded in the subconscious phase of mind. The individual may change the false mental picture to that of perfection through the right use of the imagination.
It is the subconscious phase of mind that builds and sustains the physical body. When the subconscious is given the right ideas, thoughts, and words by the conscious phase of mind then through feeling, the right pictures are impressed upon the imagination. Scars and deformities will no longer appear in the body for there will be no negative pictures (mental patterns) to sustain them. "Ye therefore shall be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" (Matt. 5:48)
