Only salvation can be said to cure.
All other healing methods are like band-aids, some seeming to be better than some others; yet they mostly serve the body and ignore the mind. And even when the patient appears to be healed, the body still is the focus; let Us now look again to only mind.
1 Cure is a word that cannot be applied to any remedy the world accepts as beneficial. Only God can truly cure or heal. All other so-called healing is but remission, for body does still seem to be in charge instead of Mind. What the world perceives as therapeutic is but what will make the body “better.” When it tries to heal the mind, it sees no separation from the body, where it thinks the mind exists. Its forms of healing thus must substitute illusion for illusion. One belief in sickness takes another form, and so the patient now perceives himself as well. For all of this is about perception, not Reality
2 He is not healed. He merely had a dream that he was sick, and in the dream he found a magic formula to make him well. Yet he has not awakened from the dream, and so his mind remains exactly as it was before. He went for more matter to cure matter, thus He keeps His precious beliefs intact. He has not seen the light that would awaken him and end the dream. What difference does the content of a dream make in reality? One either sleeps or wakens. There is nothing in between. What You call ‘healing’ is simply to keep the body’s comfort. What I call healing is Awakening.
3 The happy dreams the Holy Spirit brings are different from the dreaming of the world, where one can merely dream he is awake. Happy dreams lead You gently, easily, to Awakening. That is their purpose. The dreams forgiveness lets the mind perceive do not induce another form of sleep, so that the dreamer dreams another dream. His happy dreams are heralds of the dawn of truth upon the mind. They lead from sleep to gentle waking, so that dreams are gone. And thus they cure for all eternity. These most useful dreams usually occur in waking hours. For You surely are asleep to God — with rare exceptions — 24 / 7.
4 Atonement heals with certainty and cures all sickness. For the mind which understands that sickness can be nothing but a dream is not deceived by forms the dream may take. Sickness where guilt is absent cannot come, for it is but another form of guilt. Only innocence is free of all guilt. Atonement does not heal the sick, for that is not a cure. It takes away the guilt that makes the sickness possible. And that is cure indeed. For sickness now is gone, with nothing left to which it can return. Without guilt, there is no sickness, for the dream has been demoted from reality to fantasy.
5 Peace be to you who have been cured in God and not in idle dreams. For cure must come from holiness, and holiness can not be found where sin is cherished. God abides in holy temples. Which temple You are, if You but knew it. He is barred where sin has entered. Yet there is no place where He is not. And therefore sin can have no home in which to hide from His beneficence. There is no place where holiness is not, and nowhere sin and sickness can abide. They seem to be only as delusions.
6 This is the thought that cures. It does not make distinctions among unrealities. Nor does it seek to heal what is not sick, unmindful where the need for healing is. This is no magic. It is merely an appeal to truth which cannot fail to heal and heal forever. This Truth is Reality, ignored by relentless Dreamers. Be grateful You are reading this, for it is the open door that leads to freedom.1 It is not a thought which judges an illusion by its size, its seeming gravity, or anything that is related to the form it takes. It merely focuses on what it is and knows that no illusion can be real. Truth cannot ever be fooled by dreams nor by an illusion.
7 Let us not try today to seek to cure what cannot suffer sickness. Healing must be sought but where it is and then applied to what is sick so that it can be cured. There is no remedy the world provides that can effect a change in anything. The mind that brings illusions to the truth is really changed. For the Light that dismisses the dark and gloomy dream shows forth Reality to You, which now becomes Your new point of view. There is no change but this. For how can one illusion differ from another but in attributes that have no substance, no reality, no core, and nothing that is truly different? Hence We gladly leave behind illusions for the Truth of God.
8 Today we seek to change our minds about the source of sickness, – that it is so-called ‘mind’, not the body – for we seek a cure for all illusions, not another shift among them. We would rather see God’s Reality.We will try today to find the source of healing, which is in our minds because our Father placed it there for us. It is not further from us than ourselves. It is as near to us as our own thoughts—so close it is impossible to lose. We need but seek it, and it must be found. Just ask for the help of Holy Spirit.
9 We will not be misled today by what appears to us as sick. We will begin to understand that We are Holy Spirit. We go beyond appearances today and reach the source of healing from which nothing is exempt. Embracing every One for It is Love. We will succeed to the extent to which we realize that there can never be a meaningful distinction made between what is untrue and equally untrue. Here there are no degrees and no beliefs that what does not exist is truer in some forms than others. All of them are false and can be cured because they are not true. It’s very simple: what isn’t, isn’t!
10 So do we lay aside our amulets, our charms and medicines, our chants and bits of magic in whatever form they took. All Our magic, whether it is black or white or holistic. We will be still and listen for the Voice of healing which will cure all ills as one, restoring saneness to the Son of God. No voice but this can cure. For not with magic or with potions, but with the Truth is healing thus accomplished. Today we hear a single Voice which speaks to us of truth where all illusions end, and peace returns to the eternal quiet home of God. Have We ever heard such Love and just forgotten? How wonderful to hear again.
11 We waken hearing Him and let Him speak to us five minutes as the day begins and end the day by listening again five minutes more before we go to sleep. Our only preparation is to let our interfering thoughts be laid aside, not separately, but all of them as one. They are the same. We have no need to make them different and thus delay the time when we can hear our Father speak to us. We hear Him now. We come to Him today. In great gratitude and with quite extreme thankfulness come We joyously to God.
12 With nothing in our hands to which we cling, with lifted hearts and listening minds – all of them empty – we pray:
13 Only salvation can be said to cure.
Speak to us, Father, that we may be healed. Drench Us with Your Love, for We are extremely thirsty for it!
14 And we will feel salvation cover us with soft protection and with peace so deep that no illusion can disturb our minds nor offer proof to us that it is real. We are as safe and happy as the baby in the mother’s arms, and just as loved. This will we learn today. And be filled with joy! And we will say our prayer for healing hourly and take a minute as the hour strikes to hear the answer to our prayer be given us as we attend in silence and in joy. This is the day when healing comes to us. This is the day when separation ends and we remember Who we really are. Could One ever feel more grateful than We!
