SPIRITUAL REMEDIES FOR PARTICULAR LACKS
EVERY MANIFESTATION of inharmony in the body and life has its correspondence in the mind. Either in the conscious mind there are thoughts not in accord with the law of righteousness fear, anxiety, intolerance, criticism, hate, jealousy, lack or in the subconscious mind there have in the past been stored away error thoughts that are as yet unredeemed. In order to remove the bodily inharmony or the inharmony in the life we need to counteract the thought or group of thoughts that is at the root of the error appearance, and to plant in this emptied place the good seed of righteous thoughts that will continually increase and produce in the body and the life the good only. If thoughts are chosen that are pure truths, free from intellectual conclusions and deductions, from emotions and material desires, nothing more is needed except to hold them fast in the conscious mind until the subconscious mind grasps them, and the soul realizes its freedom to express its Christ likeness. Then does the holy thought come into its own; and the power of the word being released, it expresses itself first in a consciousness of peace and harmony, then in a lifting of the feeling nature into a state of ecstacy or exultation, and then in a manifestation of peaceful and harmonious living.
All spiritual remedies dissolve errors of consciousness even as a light turned on in a dark room
dissolves the darkness. They bring into consciousness the light of Truth, even as a lamp brings light into a darkened room, and the Truth of life, which is health, joy, abundance, stands forth even as the true character of the room stands forth when it is revealed by the light. According as we have faith in that which the spiritual remedy expresses the Truth about ourselves as sons and heirs of the Most High God so truth will be manifested for us and in us. If our faith is weak and wavering and we keep our vision on the appearance, power is withheld from the words we speak, and the change cannot manifest itself quickly, may never manifest itself; but if our faith is in the Great Physician and we see as already accomplished that which we speak, then the words will be given freedom to express their power and will carry us into the very presence of the divine healer, and our release will be speedy.
The quicker one turns from an appearance of inharmony and dissolves it through the use of a Truth statement the less hold will it have on the flesh, the less growth will it have in the life. A weed in its early growth is easily pulled up, for it has not yet become firmly established; but the longer it remains the further out and deeper down does it send its roots, making it harder to uproot and causing a greater disturbance to the soil and surrounding plants. To take at once, when errors are felt or seen, a statement of Truth that denies the cause of the appearance and affirms its opposite, the spiritual reality, is to enter quickly the realm of the pattern
in the mount, from which comes perfect expression. Thus there is wiped out root and branch, through contact with the Father within who doeth the works, that which causes the discord in the life, and it is mastered or controlled before it has spread to other parts of the outer expression.
Man has the will to use, the power to choose, one of two ways of thought activity, either the Adamic consciousness of mixed good and evil or the pure Christ consciousness of the spiritual reality. Only that which is "very good" is of God's creation and worthy of our consideration, our acceptance of anything less than this puts us under bondage to sense consciousness. To co-operate with the Creator in His "very good" is to recognize the divinity of the self, the diseaseless, deathless, sinless self, the triumphant Son of God with power and dominion over all error; and to recognize this is to open the way for its manifestation in reality.
The spiritual "remedies" outlined here have been given the writer in answer to a call on the omniscient Mind for the highest help available for others in their time of need, in cleansing, renewing and making them harmonious according to the perfect pattern. They are to be used to deny the root cause of the inharmony of the body or life, thus cleansing the mental realm, and then to lift the mind to the purity and faith of the Christ. They are to be used to deny the line of thought that has caused the error appearance and to affirm the spiritual reality needed to counteract it and to build in that which the discordant
thought has hidden for the time being. Thus does one enter the realm from which Jesus Christ functioned when He spoke forgiveness of sins; when He made the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, the lame to walk, the blind to see; when He restored the fevered body, and raised up the dead into new and vital living. In this state of consciousness all things are possible, nothing is hard, because one has lost consciousness of the weak and limited personal self and become one with the miracle-working Christ of God. He who said, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden," has been given the burden of circumstances or conditions, and you find rest unto soul and body when He enters and does His perfect work.
The spiritual remedies given here state the Truth, no matter what the appearance may be, no matter what the senses claim, no matter what others say. Accept them in faith as from the Great Physician. Take the prayer that fits your need. Repeat it over and over until it is fixed in your conscious mind. Repeat it yet over and over until your whole being recognizes that it is the truth concerning the self, until the very flesh vibrates to the words. Then drop the denial portion of the prayer and hold the affirmation until it continues to say itself subconsciously when you are about the day's duties or asleep in your bed at night. Then you will find the power of the word becoming flesh to dwell with you, expressing itself in joy and beauty, in wholeness and plenty.
As a person continually turns to the spiritual remedy
to meet each situation in his life, he will find growing in him a fuller consciousness of the one Presence and one Power omnipresent in his life. As he keeps the high watch, turning always in faith toward the Giver of gifts, claiming the Truth about himself as son and heir of God, he will find his inheritance of that which the Father is and that which the Father has becoming manifest here and now. As he looks away from every error appearance, from pain and ache and disease, to the perfect Christ body within, bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh, the very life and substance of His being, he will find purity and perfection manifesting itself in his body temple, and he will become a new creature in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:17), every whit whole. Then will he come into that which mortal eye hath not seen, nor physical ear heard, neither the intellect conceived; he will come into a consciousness of the glory that the soul had with the Father in the beginning, when he was the delight of the Creator, a master workman with Him in creating the good. Beloved, may this be your experience through the use of the words below, words given by the omniscient Mind to one whose whole desire in life is to be of service in lifting humanity out of suffering and sorrow, poverty and death into its divine inheritance of peace and beauty, joy and plenty, glorious living here and now.
