  “But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,  And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.”  (Isaiah 43:1; New King James Bible Version (NKJV).  

“Delight yourself also in the Lord,  And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”  (Psalm 37:4; (NKJV).

 “The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.” (Jeremiah 31:3; (NKJV).

 “Let this mind be in you that was also in Christ Jesus,”  (Philippians 2:5; (NKJV).


         Life is an entirely good thing, for God never created evil in any way, shape, or form to interfere with the harmony of divine Spirit’s creation.  Through no effort of our own, we have been created as spiritual beings in body, mind, and soul.  Life is an eternal thing, the understanding to which we must awaken; for sickness and death aren’t real conditions belonging to God’s off-spring, anywhere or anytime. We are simply ‘sleeping’ in the collective dream of finite materiality.  And when in a dream, or lower level of consciousness, we don’t perceive anything outside of the dream-state.  Thus, our memories of our true Home, the Kingdom of God, are sleeping within us…that is, within our innate spiritual sense of reality.  

     This innate, spiritual consciousness that sleeps deep within each of us is often referred to as, the Christ Consciousness.  This spiritual consciousness is fully awake to the truth of all being, even as our sleeping, limited human level of thought dreams.  Because our Christ Consciousness exists and lives within God, it knows all Truth.  This is the ‘mind that was also in Christ Jesus,’ as referred to in the biblical Book of Philippians, Chapter 2, Verse 5.  (See last quotation on 1st page of article.)

         In our collective dream of materiality, however, we encounter bad people, places and things in our daily ‘earthly’ experience.  But evils are simply the claim of the lack of good…lack of money, lack of friends, lack of health, lack of life, and lack of any other good thing you can think of.  To the extent that we take these ‘lacks’ as real because they have taken material form, (or rather, some good thing seems to be missing in our experience) we will suffer from them.  They will negatively impact our human experience. 

         Yet, these bad situations occur only in the outside world of form; for, beneath all the destructive things going on in the physical sense of things (the external universe of form) there is a far better ‘place’ in which we exist.  In fact, it is the only place we actually exist; but we do not recognize it while in our materialistic-dream of reality, because it is outside our limited, physical sense of perception. 

     Our harmonious place, however, is our forever place.  It is the Kingdom of God, which we have never left, except in this dream-state of materiality.  The collective illusion of finite, physical being is a state of self-deception, from which Christ Jesus came to awaken us.  The human beliefs about material being had led humanity far and away from the spiritual truth of being.  So, Christ Jesus, a spiritually-awakened brother, came into the collective dream of materiality to show us the way out. 

         Christ Jesus taught, to his disciples, the truth of spiritual being, rather than material being.  Shifting away from the false, material sense to the spiritual reality of existence, those early disciples learned, from their Master, how to spiritually heal all who came to them with their sick beliefs, which had manifested into ill-health and all the ‘lacks’ that the false sense of materiality creates. 

       For four hundred years after Jesus left this world in the ascension, his teachings to his disciples showed that hatred, poverty, disease, and the lack of any good thing could be healed; but not by something material.  God is infinite Spirit, who creates only spiritual children, or off-spring.  Jesus tried to show his followers that their true identity was not material, but spiritual.  He demonstrated ‘the Christ’…the true, spiritually universal identity of each and every one of God’s own children.  This is what he was trying to show:  that we are each and every one of us a child of God, the infinite Creator, and the only Creator of any one or any thing in all creation.  Like produces like.  Spirit’s children are spiritual entities…not material beings.

         His unusual birth recorded Christ Jesus’s entry into this illusory physical plane or hypnotic dream-state of material being.  He came to show humanity the truth of being.  As spiritual beings, we will each find ourselves ever-lastingly whole and alive, when we spiritually awaken to who we really are (God’s own off-spring) and where we really are (in the spiritual kingdom of God, and nowhere else).  Jesus was his human name; but of this human name, St. Paul, the Apostle,  wrote, Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more.”  (2 Corinthians 5:16, King James Bible (KJV).   Paul was explaining that the human name of Jesus signifies the earthly man…the false, material man.  The ‘Christ’ signifies the spiritual identity of God’s own spiritual children.

     To this end, when Jesus was healing and preaching throughout his ministry, he often asked the one asking for healing if he or she believed it could be done, or if they believed he could do it.  Either way, it was their belief he wanted to see.  There was a very good reason for this.  The reason was that their own belief in material disease and all other ‘evils’ was the hidden cause behind the manifestation of evil that had to be changed, back toward the belief in health and wholeness again, in order for health and wholeness to manifest again on their physical form.  In other words, in order to return to normalcy, they had to dis-believe in evil, as even a part of God’s harmonious (heavenly) kingdom.  Spiritual healing can only occur when the disease-belief is cast out of consciousness, by realization of God’s Allness of good.

     Contrary to our collective belief that evil is something, it is really nothing.  Evil means the absence of all good.  Thus, recognizing the presence of only good in God’s forever, spiritual creation covers more than the subject of health.  It also has to do with things like poverty, hatred, or lack of any God-created good.  The divine creation includes only that which contributes to the joy and harmony of existence…and nothing can overturn that spiritual fact.  In the Kingdom of God, Heaven, only good is present.  There is no lack of any good, divinely created thing.  Each child of God is an individual soul.  Each of us shows a face of God, so to speak; for we each have a unique identity, which finds joy and talents in different ways from everyone else. 

     Our limited physical senses bear witness only to what is going on, out there, in the physical world of form.  We perceive only what we can see, hear, touch, taste, and smell; and our material world is filled with all sorts of ‘bad’ things to perceive with these five (often deceptive) physical senses.  Yet, the belief of these physical senses as reality is the very thing we need to overcome, in order to be free of the seeming-power of what is erroneously recognized as physical ‘law’.

         What we call ‘evils’ are those material beliefs that seem to be destructively real.  We manifest these situations on our physical form, or in our daily lives, when we accept the collective belief in materiality as reality.  We erroneously believe ourselves to be finite, physical beings, born through a chain of material parents as the sources of our very being, harmony and health.  This false belief mentally leaves God out of Its own creation.  This also leads us to accept and believe that our physical forms are the masters of our bodies and we are the servants, causing us to believe every material belief to our detriment. 

         Sometimes we find solace against our troubles in whatever faith we practice.  Yet, our trust in an invisible God can often seem to be merely wishful thinking…even though it is not.  To perceive the invisible presence of God, the infinite Spirit in which we all ‘live, move, and have our being’, (Acts 17:28; NKJV) is no small thing.  To acknowledge the divine Presence with us, trust it, and stand firm in this trust, will lead us out of whatever bad situation seems to engulf us, or have us trapped.

         Each of us is governed by our own belief system and what we have chosen to be true in this human experience.  We are the captains of our own ship, so to speak.  But realize this: if one feels like stealing something, it is the mind, not the hand, which orders the hand to do so.  The hand cannot think or decide anything.  And just in that same way, whatever we THINK and BEIEVE about our health, (such as the effect of time, inheriting some condition, catching some ailment) our physical form will create the symptoms or other material evidence of this in or on our physical form, until we mentally disown it.  Then it will withdraw from our physical form, without any outside help. 

         Living with this lack of comprehension concerning the universe of divine Spirit, God, we don’t question, as we should, the moments in our lifetimes when something “unusual” happens, or is healed without material medicine, or a pathway opens for us we never even thought possible.  We don’t stop to pursue, or honor, the wonderful, unusual thing that has just taken place.

         For example, take the story of the ten lepers who were healed of leprosy, during Christ Jesus’ ministry. (See Luke 17:11-18, NKJV).  Only one of the ten healed from this dreaded disease came back to Jesus to recognize, and honor, the spiritual power that Jesus comprehended in order to work such a wondrous thing for the ten afflicted ones.  

         Had they ever asked ‘how’ they were healed, others might have learned the spiritual science behind this phenomenon.  That’s what Jesus was trying to show all humanity, and that’s what his own disciples learned; for, they continued to spiritually heal people of diseases for four hundred years after Jesus left this earth in his ascension, before the church doctrines of those ancient times drummed healing out of the churches.

       God created us to be joyful, productive, healthy, and eternal.  God never abandoned us or left us in a material dimension that we cannot escape, except through death.  God never created death or loss of consciousness, at all.  These are false dream-states from which we each must awaken, one day, either on this side, or the other side, of an earthly grave.  As we call forth more of our innate Christ Consciousness within, we are awakening more with each experience and triumph that divine truth reveals to us.  Then, there will be no more death-dreams to experience.
