Treating Children

In the case of an infant – who is subjective to the conscious thought of the people around it – it may be necessary to teach the parents how to think about the child, else one might heal the infant and have the parents thought make it sick again. Explain to them the result of entertaining fears for the health of their children. Remember that the thought of the parents influences the child.

We will suppose the mother is constantly saying: “the poor thing; the poor, little sick thing.” From the human standpoint, this is natural, but it does not help the child, no matter how loving the thought may be. This is called unconscious, or innocent, malpractice. Is malpractice because it is the wrong use of thought; innocent because it is not intended to do harm; unconscious because the mother does not know the result of such mental action. In such a case, is the business of the practitioner to realize that there is no mental influence operating through the child except a belief in perfection.

At first, children are happy, free, spontaneous. This is why we like them, they live instinctively. As they grow older and their emotions become more complex, and they hear people talk about death, trouble, divorce, love and marriage and everything else, good, bad and indifferent, they begin to react to these emotions subjectively. Everything that opposes harmony and spontaneous unity, will prove disastrous to the child’s health, sooner or later. After certain age, children have to be reeducated, just as do adults, that there subjective mind may not reproduce false impressions.

The Medium of Healing

the thing to remember is, that THERE IS JUST ONE SUBJECTIVE MIND IN THE UNIVERSE. This is a point that people often do not realize, and because they do not, they cannot see how a person may be treated without touching him, or that a person At a distance can be helped through absent treatment.

If there is but One Subjective Mind in the Universe (and we have already learned the meaning and nature of Subjective Mind: It is deductive, receptive, plastic, neutral, impersonal and creative, It is the Stuff from which all things are made) you can impress upon it a certain image of thought, or a certain process of realization, and you will get a result, for It is the Actor.

When we speak of every thought dropped into the Creative Medium, do we think of God’s thought and man’s thought as the same? We think of each as thought; but, whereas man thinks both inductively and deductively, God thinks only deductively.

God is not conscious of matter as we know it. God is conscious of form, but not of size. God is conscious of manifestation but not of space. God is conscious of outline but not of limitation. God is conscious in many forms, but not as division.

There is a great difference between conscious and unconscious thought for train thought is far more powerful than untrained. If this were not true, the thoughts of the metaphysical practitioner could not neutralize those which caused his to be sick. Even a small amount of right thought puts to route that which is wrong.

We have learned that subjective mind can reduce only that it cannot of itself initiate anything; but this does not mean that it is unintelligent. We must be very careful not to labor under the delusion that because subjective mind cannot reason, it is unintelligent, for it is infinitely more intelligent than our present state of conscious mind, but is, nevertheless, controlled by it.

If our subjective consciousness were always clear, if it never received false impressions, the spirit would always flow to the point of objectivity, and we would never make mistakes, would never be sick, poor or unhappy.

Universe being deductive only, cannot refuse man anything. The very force which makes us sick can heal us, the force which makes us poor can enrich us, and the power which makes us miserable can make us happy. If this were not true, there would be a duality in the universe and that is impossible.

You do not need to look for a law of health as opposed to a law of disease, for there is only one Law. This gives a great sense of relief since it means that THERE IS NO POWER TO OPPOSE A TREATMENT. We are bound by our very freedom, our free will binds us, but is free will creates the conditions which externally limit us, so it can on create and dissolve them. Instead of saying, “Here is a sick man to heal, and I shall have to work hard on this case,” we should realize that there is nothing but Spirit in the universe and therefore, say, “I am going to conceive of this man as being Spirit, and the same power which made him sick will heal him.”

As Little Children (Matthew 18:3)

We must become as little children. How we long for a return of that simple trust in life which children have; in the minds there are no doubts – they have not yet been told that they are sinners, destitute of divine guidance and spiritual life. The life of the child is lived in natural goodness. God is natural goodness. The prison walls of false experience soon build themselves into barriers, shutting out the light, and the child grows into a man, often losing his sense of that inner guide, leading his footsteps aright.

We must return the way we came. As little children, who know that life is good and to be trusted, we are to approach our problems as though they were not. Approaching them in this matter, they will vanish.

Let not the materialist deny us this right, nor the unbelieving cast any reflection of his blindness before our eyes. There is a wisdom and a power not of the flesh, which springs parentally from the inner life – all–powerful and all–wise.

Whatsoever you shall bind on earth (Matthew 18:18)

next we come to a passage difficult to understand and one which has caused confusion in many minds. “Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

A superficial reading of this passage might lead one to suppose that this earth provides the last chance for the salvation of the soul. But this is not the meaning of the text which implies that the experience of death cannot change all. As a man has lived on earth, so he will continue to live after death. If he has been pure, he will continue to be pure. If he has been otherwise, he will continue to be otherwise.

False experience will continue until the lesson is learned, until the soul turns from that which hurts to its greater good. The spirit of man is of like nature to the spirit of God, and it is impossible for the spirit of God to remain in darkness. The next life is a logical continuation of this one and could not be otherwise.

Divine Forgiveness (Matthew 18:21 – 22)

in the next passage, Jesus clearly explains the meaning of divine forgiveness. He says that we should forgive until 70×7. This is but another way of saying that forgiveness is eternal and ever available. What a load is dropped from the shoulders of personal responsibility, when we realize that the Eternal Mind holds not against anyone! But, to those who feel that this is unfair, it will be a hard saying. “What,” says one, “are not my virtues to be rewarded above those who have none?” Oh, foolish one in blind, what do you know about virtue? Has your life always been beyond reproach? Have you never fallen short of the divine calling? Who are you to point the finger of scorn at your brother? The man who feels self-righteousness rise from his petty virtues, lives a life of self-delusion.

No this: Virtue does not know that it is virtuous, and could it know, it would immediately become vicious. Virtue is sweet as the morning dew, soft as the evening star, and brilliant as the noon-day sun. Could you do tell why it is sweet, the star say why it’s light is soft, or the sun say why it shines? We learn to put away our petty virtues with our petty vices, then shall we see clearly – not what either virtue or vice is – but what Truth is!

The mine which condemns, understands not the truth of being, and the heart which would shut the door of its bosom to one who is mistaken, strangles its own life, closing its eyes to a greater vision. The biggest life is the one which includes the most.

Not that we foster vice or place a premium upon wrongdoing, but that we understand the frailties of human nature and learn to overlook much. To him who loves much, much is forgiven.

No Loss

There is no loss.

Nothing can be lost, misplaced nor forgotten.

There is never any loss nor confusion.

Creation is Perfect and Complete, within the One are all things, and all are known to the One.

I am now in complete harmony with the Whole and I cannot lose nor misplace anything.

I am constantly finding more and more Good.

I know that there is no loss.

Oh, for a Tongue to Express

Oh, for a tongue to express the Wonders which the thought reveals!

Oh, for some Word to comprehend the boundless idea!

With that some Voice were sweet enough to sound the harmony of Life. 

But Within, in that vast realm of thought where the Soul meets God, the spirit knows.

I will listen for that voice and it will tell me of Life, of Love and Unity.

Speak to me, Spirit.

Oh Soul of Mind, Look out and See

oh soul of mine, look out and see; look up and know Thy freedom.

Be not cast down nor dismayed; be uplifted within me and exult, for Thy Salvation has come.

Behold the wonders of the Great Whole and the marvels of the Universe.

Look out and see Thy good. It is not a far off, but is at hand.

Prepare Thyself to accept and believe; to know and live.

Let Life enter and live through the, Soul of mine, and rejoice that Thou hast vision so fair and so complete.

Rejoice that the Perfect Whole is so completely reflected through Thee.

My light has come.

No Sensation in Treatments

is sometimes thought that in giving or receiving a treatment, one must experience some physical sensation. A patient sometimes says, after receiving a treatment: “I felt nothing unusual during the treatment.” It is not necessary that the patient should feel anything unusual. There is no peculiar sensation which accompanies a treatment, neither is it necessary that the practitioner should feel anything, other than the truth of the words that he speaks.

When we plan a seed in the ground we do not have a great sensation, it is not probable that the soil has any; but the seed planted in the creative soil will, nevertheless, produce a plant. “What is true on one plane is true on all.” Knowing what you are doing just as definitely as the gardener does. It is the person who knows what he is doing gets results.

Sometimes people who are being treated, as well as the practitioner, feel a great sense of peace, or elation, a vibration of light. Such a treatment – if it could be seen – might appear as light. People often do have a sense of light during a treatment; it is not at all necessary that you the practitioner or the patient should experience any sensation out of the ordinary during a treatment. Practitioner does not work himself up into an emotional state. While it is true that the treatment is creative, is also true that whatever feeling there is, must be in the fact and not a cause. It must be the result of a conviction.

Healing Is Clear Thinking Part 2

Right thought, constantly poured into consciousness, will eventually purify it. Discord might be likened to a bottle of impure water; healing might be likened to the process of dropping pure water into the bottle, a drop at a time, until the whole is clean and pure. Someone might ask why the bottle could not be turned upside down and at one straight out all the impurities. Sometimes this happens but not often. Meanwhile, a drop at a time will finally eliminate the impurities and produce a healing.      

In treating, go beyond the disease and supply a spiritual consciousness. A treatment is not complete without a great realization of Life and Love, of God in Perfection, of Truth and Wisdom, of Power in Reality. Since the Divine Presence in and through the patient at all times.

Whether we say that thought goes out, or that is operated upon by Principle, makes little difference. It is very evident that until a thought is created, there is no operation. It is evident that THINKING SETS CAUSATION IN MOTION. Whether the word used heals, or simply sets the law in motion, really is of small import.

The practitioner is in the same Mind in which his patient lives; consequently, since each is in the One Mind, the patient is sick in the same medium and in a certain sense in the same Mind in which the practitioner lives; and because this Mind Is Indivisible, the practitioner can, his own mentality, reached the thought which causes the patient to be sick. Whether we say he sends out a thought, or that he simply realizes a thought, makes no difference. The simplest way to say that the practitioner realizes, within himself, upon the one mind, through the one medium, in the One Law.

The practitioner realizes a certain truth for his patient within himself. Therefore, he sets the Law in motion for his patient. (The operation of this Law may be thought of in the same way we think of the Law whereby water reaches its own level by its own weight.) The practitioner knows within himself, and this self knowingness rises into the consciousness of his patient. Is like planting a seed in the ground, the practitioner sows the seed in the Creative Mind produces the plant. Does the soil operate on the seed, or does the seed operate on the soil? We do not know, but we do know that when a seed is put into the ground, the law pertaining to growth operates and a plant is produced, and that unless a seed is planted, no plant will be produced.

In practice, we make no attempt to send thoughts to our patients! We know there is but one mind. We will say that “capital a” represents one who is sick and desires help. “B” represents a practitioner. “B” thinks into mind; and whether we say that he is thinking within himself or somewhere else does not matter, he is always thinking into mind, because he is in mind! But one might say, “the patient thinks into his own subjective mind.” Yes, if you wish to designate it as his subjective mind, but his subjective mind is only his atmosphere in the One Mind. We must understand this very clearly, else someday there will be a wall between our thought and its ability to heal some person who happens to be at a physical distance.

Both the patient and the practitioner thinking to one common mind. Therefore, when a patient comes to a practitioner for healing, the practitioner does not try to hypnotize him, nor suggest anything to him. He declares the Truth about the patient. To the degree that the practitioner brings his own consciousness to a true recognition of perfection – provided there is a subjective receptivity in the thought of the patient – that man will be helped.

The practitioner does not try to hold a thought nor to send out a thought. He simply tries to convince himself of the perfection of his patient. The practitioner does not try to make his Word operates through his patient, but only attempts to know the Truth of what he states. The patient must be receptive to the Truth, then the Truth will heal him. The practitioner is dealing with Universal Law, backed by omnipotent Power, which is Divine Principle. This is what Jesus meant when he said: “you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Every time we think, we are thinking into a receptive plastic Substance, which receives the impressive our thought. We stopped to realize how subtle thoughts are, how unconsciously we think negation, how easy it is to get “down and out” mentally, we shall see that each is perpetuating his own condition. This is why people go from bad to worse or from success to a greater success.

Only as we gradually, definitely, and intelligently take true ideas and build them into the structure of our own thought, can there, the desired reaction. In mental treatment, the practitioner’s deal solely with ideas, and treats neither bodies nor conditions. He never manipulates, nor should he lay hands on his patient… He does not care where the patient is when he is treating him, or what he may be doing. The practitioner’s work begins and ends within his own consciousness. This should be constantly borne in mind.

Healing Is Clear Thinking

Scientific mental healing is the result of clear thinking and logical reasoning, which presents itself to consciousness and is acted upon by Mind. It is a systematic process of reasoning, which honors the mental cause or idea underlying disease, and presents the Truth about man’s being.

For instance, say to yourself: “God is all there is. There is only one life.” When you are treating, if there is any slight point which is not clear, do not continue with the treatment. Stop at once, go back to your analysis of Ultimate Reality, and build your whole argument upon It, in order to get a clear consciousness.

Repeat: “God is all. There is but one power, intelligence and consciousness in the universe, but One Presence. This One Presence cannot change. There is nothing for it to change into but Itself. It is Changeless, and it is my life now, it is in me now.” Claim that no form of race-suggestion, belief in limitation, subjective idea of limitation, thought of karma, fatalism, theology or hell, horoscope, or any other false belief, has power. Except none of them. If you have ever believed in them, if you have ever believed that the stars govern you, or that your environment governs you, or that your opportunities govern you, recognize this as a hypnotic condition into which you have fallen, and deny every one of them until there is no longer anything in you that believes in them.

This is a good way to clear your consciousness. We can readily see what it does: it induces a clear concept of Reality, which must produce Itself. This process of clear thinking, if carried out every day, will heal.

When you are giving a treatment, you are thinking. You are meeting, opposing, neutralizing, erasing and obliterating suppression, fear, doubt, failure, morbid emotion and sense of loss – whatever the trouble may be. Every time your thought hits fairly and squarely, it erases just as definitely as one would race a chalk line. Such is the mystery of the appearance and that disappearance of thought.

Right thought, constantly poured into consciousness, will eventually purify it. Discord might be likened to a bottle of impure water; healing might be likened to the process of dropping pure water into the bottle, a drop at a time, until the whole is clean and pure. Someone might ask why the bottle could not be turned upside down and at one straight out all the impurities. Sometimes this happens but not often. Meanwhile, a drop at a time will finally eliminate the impurities and produce a healing.
