A Primer for Living a Life


Seeing Perfection PT 2

Back of what we call the human body, there must be a divine body. Is not necessary to visualize the spiritual body, but we should sense body as a spiritual idea, that the flow and circulation of life through it is complete. Is not inhibited… not congested.

It is necessary that the practitioner believe in a perfect body. He cannot realize this unless he has already become convinced that the perfect body is there. If he has come to this conclusion, he must not deny it. There's a perfect heart and a perfect idea of heart, perfect head in a perfect idea of had, perfect lungs and a perfect idea of lungs. The practitioner must realize that back of the appearance is the Reality, and it is his business to uncover this Reality. He does this through a process of obliterating false thought. He must deny false conclusions, bring out the evidence of perfection, and produce the healing. Disease is a fact but not a truth; it is an experience but not a spiritual reality.

We must transcend the appearance, even though we admitted as a fact. We are not so cold-blooded as to say to a person with pain that there is no such thing as pain. This is not our idea or purpose. We admit the fact. IT IS QUITE A DIFFERENT THING TO ADMIT IT'S NECESSITY. We admit that there is unhappiness, but it would be unthinkable to admit that no one has to be unhappy. Can it be true that there could be a Universal necessity for and happiness? IT CANNOT. And the time will come when no one will be unhappy! I do not know when it will come. I am not going to wait for it to come, but it is certain that such a time will arrive; and it will come to you and to me NOW in such degree as we will let it come. We shall be able to let it come in such a degree as we are able to convince our consciousness that it is there. And when he finally does come, we shall find that it was always there!

Disease, accordingly, is a fact but not a truth. It is not an eternal verity. It was a factor in human experience for ages that people did not broadcast over a radio, but it was not a truth that they could not. It was not a divine Reality, because had they known how to manufacture a radio and talk over it, they could have broadcast in any age. So we must try to see and sense that always, back of the appearance, PERFECTION IS.
