How do you heal sickness? You have to go so deeply within in joining with the Spirit that you actually see the impossibility of sickness. How do you do that? First of all, if this world is a projection, the problem is not on the screen; you have to get it off the screen. Sickness is not specific, it is MENTAL. When you have brought it back to the mind you are ready for the next step: Atonement, salvation, resurrection.
David Hoffmeister shares a new perspective on health and illness. He uses hilarious examples to show us our belief in dream characters. When the definition of sickness is lifted right up to the mind we cannot but acknowledge that all sickness is fragmented perception. All illness is mental illness and health is inner peace. The healing is in seeing the world in a completely new way.
With the Holy Spirit’s vision we begin to awaken from the dream and recognize that healing from illness happens on the level of the mind, where true healing can actually occur. “A Course in Miracles” teaches us that all illness is mental illness and health is inner peace. The deceived mind reacts to the images of the world as if they are real. The Holy Spirit has the job of convincing the mind that it is dreaming and that the illness is actually our fragmented perception and not in the world. The world we perceive is only our animated thoughts projected outward.
Health problems and challenges can seem very real. If you reel it back in, you can see that there are no health problems in the world. It’s a trick! It’s a big smoke screen. There are no health problems in the world. Health is inner Peace. The world does not have a cause. If it did have a cause, it would have a real effect and then we would be stuck.
Human beings look for evidence. They interpret their perception of sick people as proof that sickness is real. But they are actually perceiving “False Evidence Appearing Real.” The ego mind believes in sickness and projects out false images that it then perceives as real. It is a case of projection making perception.
There is no cause but mind. To release attack thoughts you must see there is no difference between attacking and being attacked. Attack is not possible. Jesus teaches, “I am not a body. And my mind cannot attack. So I can not be sick.” (W-136.20:5-7) You believe you have attacked God in your mind. Attack and defense seem to be the natural order so we don’t question the idea of attack. It is the linchpin illusion.
A parable-filled David Hoffmeister/”A Course in Miracles”-inspired talk! David shares many stories of extending the joy of Love. When you are ready, the Holy Spirit will let the Presence of Love pour through you. Your joy will radiate and the healing of your mind will offer comfort to the world. There is nothing wrong with the temporary use of magic to alleviate pain and suffering. Yet there is a solution that will bring eternal relief. Mary Baker Eddy said to pray first; to use the power of the mind. Become consistently miracle-minded to heal your fragmented perception. The ultimate goal is not symptom removal but Awakening.
