“For a teacher of God to remain concerned about the result of healing is to limit the healing.
1 – Don’t Doubt the Outcome
When we remain concerned about the results of our petition for healing, we are doubting the outcome. And Jesus assures us that healing has happened, even when our eyes show us that the situation is unchanged. We cannot doubt. The Self has gotten involved, and the personal self will know wellness when completely ready for it.
2 – Don’t Offer Continuing Concern
Continuing concern about healing, or recovery from illness or sickness, in our world appears to be compassionate. But Jesus in the Manual indicates otherwise. Continuing concern that the healing has actually happened does limit the healing in ways that surely none of us fully understand. This is one time that we just have to take Jesus at his word.
3 – Channels for Healing
To know that we can be channels for healing, and that we can succeed, is enormously liberating. We do not have to appeal to faith on the ground that the healing has not occurred. If we take Jesus at his word, the healing, at least on some level, has occurred when we have asked for it. We cannot doubt without limiting our asking.
4 – To Be Received Openheartedly
May we seek to heal ourselves and others with a joyous spirit, confident that the healing will happen when it will be received openheartedly. We do not have to doubt; indeed, we cannot doubt if we wish the healing to be received in any way other than a limited way. Full release comes from full confidence in Jesus. We are not healers, but through us the Holy Spirit can handle the situation with grace and ease.
5 – Living an Illusion
If the ideal of healing does not appear ever to be received, we fall back on the surety that we are living an illusion. The inner Self always knows healing, and it is the personal self that lives in this world that knows illness, suffering, and death.
I would experience today what the Self experiences, which is peace and healing. If my personal (little) self wants to see something else, may I be let to know that this is a request for illusion.
Be with me today as I seek to follow Your way. Healing will always come, when it is asked for. Help me to rest on this assurance.
