When I am healed, I am not healed alone.
The very fact of healing does illuminate the universe of dreaming, the place where sin, sickness, death are the basic rules. This is why My ministry was to heal all three, for one is no harder to heal than the other two.
Despite all the healing, these three ego lies do remain the gods of the dreaming.
Yet like the drop of water that can wear away the mountain, each healing does weaken the dream, and blesses every Brother.
1 Today’s idea remains the central thought on which salvation rests. – It shows the impartiality and universality of Our God’s Love. – For healing is the opposite of all the world’s ideas which dwell on sickness and on separate states. Sickness is a retreat from others and a shutting off of joining. It becomes a door that closes on a separate self and keeps it isolated and alone.
While this is most obvious with so-called mental illness, all illness is mental! Why? For it obtains only in the mind. Does that surprise You? All there is is Mind. What You’re not accepting is that everything is taking place as consciousness and not ‘out there’. Hence My statement that changing Your mind about what You see changes the world accordingly.
2 Sickness is isolation. For it seems to keep one self apart from all the rest to suffer what the others do not feel. It gives the body final power to make the separation real and keep the mind in solitary prison, split apart and held in pieces by a solid wall of sickened flesh which it can not surmount. – This body that seems to be made of of so-called ‘matter’ has but served as defense from the first moment of the experience of separation. It was so shocking that You automatically constricted. And never relaxed. Imagine breathing in and not ever breathing out again! – The world obeys the laws that sickness serves, –sickness is the ‘law’ as are sin and death – but healing operates apart from them. True healing does come from beyond the dream.
3 It is impossible that anyone be healed alone. – For the great act of Wholeness dwells only as Reality. Healing, Wholeness, Holiness, all one Source. – In sickness must he be apart and separate. But healing is his own decision to be one again and to accept his Self with all its parts intact and unassailed. In sickness does his Self appear to be dismembered and without the unity that gives it life. But healing is accomplished as he sees the body has no power to attack the universal oneness of God’s Son. For the body is not an entity unto itself, but simply a part of Divine Consciousness, the Substance of the Son of God and All of the Universe.
4 Sickness would prove that lies must be the truth. But healing demonstrates that truth is true.
It overrides error’s strident yelling with Truth’s loving Voice.
The separation sickness would impose has never really happened. – It is but a dream. – To be healed is merely to accept what always was the simple truth and always will remain exactly as it has forever been. – Yes. Reality. – Yet eyes accustomed to illusions must be shown that what they look upon is false. – The unholy triad: sin, sickness, death, do seem so real, and yet they don’t exist. – So healing, never needed by the truth, must demonstrate that sickness is not real.
And every healing – even of a hangnail – demonstrates the great principle that error isn’t real. How real was death when Lazarus came forth from the grave four more days after ‘dying’. Who reads that in the Bible and realizes that His healing is relevant right now as well as right here, and over two thousand years later!
It’s relevant, present and available, for All of You. I demonstrated it for Myself with the Resurrection?
Let Us apply the title of today’s Lesson to the Resurrection: “When I am healed, I am not healed alone.”
5 Healing might thus be called a counter-dream which cancels out the dream of sickness in the name of truth but not in truth itself.
For where Truth is All, sickness can’t occur.
Just as forgiveness overlooks all sins that never were accomplished, healing but removes illusions that have not occurred.
So just as We forgive a Brother for what He never did, We heal a sickness that never really happened, and cancel out a death that didn’t take place either! The dream – and every facet, including the unholy triad – is quite unreal.
Just as the real world will arise to take the place of what has never been at all, healing offers restitution for imagined states and false ideas which dreams embroider into pictures of the truth.
Your perfect Self – right here and now – abides right where You are thinking that You’re ‘human’. That is how close Your healing is to You. “Closer than breathing.”
6 Yet think not healing is unworthy of your function here. For anti-Christ becomes more powerful than Christ to those who dream the world is real. The body seems to be more solid and more stable than the mind. And love becomes a dream, while fear remains the one reality that can be seen and justified and fully understood.
Healing with God is a holy thing to do, for it gives glimpses and experiences of Reality available to You right Now. Who has had an healing that is instantaneous without some transformation? It would be impossible. Every One of You stands – right now, right where You are – on the verge of instantaneous healing. Will You accept it?
7 Just as forgiveness shines away all sin and the real world will occupy the place of what you made, so healing must replace the fantasies of sickness which you hold before the simple truth. When sickness has been seen to disappear in spite of all the laws that hold it cannot but be real, then questions have been answered. And the laws can be no longer cherished nor obeyed.
You see clearly how unreal is the dream with just one healing.
8 Healing is freedom. For it demonstrates that dreams will not prevail against the truth.
Healing is pure Joy! When healing comes straight from God, You can feel the heavy chains of fear that bound Your mind shatter into dust and blow away, leaving You free and clear. Your cup runs over!
Healing is shared. – Your freedom stands for Every One’s! – And by this attribute, it proves that laws unlike the ones which hold that sickness is inevitable are more potent than their sickly opposites.
Indeed. The ego is no match for God. For the Eternal is All-Power Now. And Now is synonym to Forever. Let that register.
Healing is strength. For by its gentle hand is weakness overcome. And minds which were walled off within a body free to join with other minds, to be forever strong.
In the dream – which is through the looking glass; i.e. everything is backward – gentleness and kindness are but considered weak. Yet Truth is, they are the qualities of Omnipotence to free the Son of God from His bondage to the ego. They pour in through flood-tides of Love and wash the ego right down the drain!
Free at last the Son of God stands forth in His magnificence; each and every One of You, the colours and the genders of the ego gone, as if they never were. Indeed, They weren’t! You see and know Your eternal Oneness with each dear Other.
What a reUnion is Awakening.
9 Healing, forgiveness, and the glad exchange of all the world of sorrow for a world where sadness cannot enter, are the means by which the Holy Spirit urges you to follow Him. – Leave sickness, unforgiveness and a the world of misery behind as You come in step with Your Right Mind: the Holy Spirit. – His gentle lessons teach how easily salvation can be yours, how little practice you need undertake to let His laws replace the ones you made to hold yourself a prisoner to death.
All You need do is let the Holy Spirit Guide You. S/He knows each real need You have and fills it for You in a perfect way.
10 His life becomes your own as you extend the little help He asks in freeing you from everything that ever caused you pain.
His Love for You is joyous and boundless.
And as you let yourself be healed, you see all those around you or who cross your mind or whom you touch or those who seem to have no contact with you healed along with you.
The Joy of this experience is beyond all happiness. Indescribable, yet You know it when You are feeling it!
Perhaps you will not recognize them all, nor realize how great your offering to all the world when you let healing come to you. – And come to You it will! – But you are never healed alone. And legions upon legions will receive the gift which you receive when you are healed.
Why is this? Not only Our minds are joined, but Our very Be-ings are joined as well. It is the loveliest intimacy. There is no ‘alone’, but rather All-One.
11 Those who are healed become the instruments of healing. Nor does time elapse between the instant they are healed and all the grace of healing it is given them to give.
Just what does that mean? There is just One Mind identified by just One Body. It is the Mind of Christ and Infinite Embodiment. As You are healed, it is felt by All the Universe and those in the dream who are close to healing, feeling You, are tipped into their own healing. And They are felt, and healings come like a huge reverse epidemic. The tide is turning.
What is opposed to God does not exist. And who accepts it not within his mind becomes a haven where the weary can remain to rest. For here is truth bestowed, and here are all illusions brought to truth.
Do You see now how extremely important is Your thinking? And not just for You.
12 Would you not offer shelter to God’s Will? You but invite your Self to be at home, and can this invitation be refused? Ask the inevitable to occur, and you will never fail. The other choice is but to ask what cannot be to be, and this cannot succeed. Today we ask that only truth will occupy our minds, that thoughts of healing will this day go forth from what is healed to what must yet be healed, aware that they will both occur as one.
Truth, once Known, has always been Known, for the not-Knowing must have been an illusion.
Guard Your thoughts as if They were Your children.
13 We will remember, as the hour strikes, our function is to let our minds be healed that we may carry healing to the world, exchanging curse for blessing, pain for joy, and separation for the peace of God.
It is always the mind that needs the healing, not the body. And then We do have the blessings, joy and peace of God to share with All Our Brothers.
Is not a minute of the hour worth the giving to receive a gift like this? Is not a little time a small expense to offer for the gift of everything?
The ego would have You ‘forget’ and so Your willingness must wed with Your steadfast determination. Heed My counsel for preparation:
14 Yet must we be prepared for such a gift. And so we will begin the day with this and give ten minutes to these thoughts with which we will conclude today at night as well:
15 When I am healed, I am not healed alone.
And I would share my healing with the world,
That sickness may be banished from the mind
Of God’s one Son, Who is my only Self.
To this I do say “Amen. So be it.
16 Let healing be through you this very day. And as you rest in quiet, be prepared to give as you receive, to hold but what you give, and to receive the Word of God to take the place of all the foolish thoughts that ever were imagined. Now we come together to make well all that was sick and offer blessing where there was attack. Nor will we let this function be forgot as every hour of the day slips by, remembering our function with this thought:
17 When I am healed, I am not healed alone.
This healing negates the separation.
And I would bless my brothers, for I would
Be healed with them as they are healed with me.
And I would have You All see the gentle shift from ‘Me’ to ‘We’.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
