Reading & Meditation by Rev. Christine 4/24/2022
My reading today is from Divine Science and Healing by Malinda Cramer in the chapter “Heal the Sick”:
Have patients anything to do with their own healing? Let the scriptures answer. There is no promise of healing to unbelievers. “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” Heb. 11:6, “Faith cometh by hearing... the word of God.” Romans, 10:17. If you have been taught that the atonement (at-one-ment) does not cover all seeming physical and mental ailments, then make the following your own: “He healed all that were sick, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet, saying. Himself took our infirmities and bare our sickness.” Matt. 8:16-17. Then let Divine Scientists speak the word of Truth for each other; let it be spoken prayerfully and faithfully that health, happiness and prosperity may spring forth speedily and naturally. The power of the Lord–Law in Action–is present to heal. “He laid his hands on every one of them and healed them.
The only salvation there is, is one-ness with God, the all-Good, and if one-ness is not accepted then salvation is not apparent, and we are either afraid that we will lose our health or else we are desiring to regain it. He who is ever with you, will heal. The real Being and nature of man heals conditions of disease when given full acknowledgment. He who is whole needs no physician. “I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel,” to those who have gone astray from the fact that the Way, the Truth and the Life that made the world and all things therein is already here. So the work of Divine Science is to teach and demonstrate the Truth of at-one-ment, God manifest in the flesh, and in all visibility, and demonstrate immortality and eternal life.
My life, substance, intelligence and power is God; there is nothing more, and nothing less than God. I am what I am, whole, perfect, without sin, or any so-called affliction, because God is Infinite and everywhere present.
Meditation - Wholeness
Let us go into meditation, relax, get comfortable, and close our eyes going into our holy temple. Now let us breathe fully and deeply, breathing in the very breath and life of God.
Infinite spirit, Divine Presence, is here now; ever present and everywhere. I am ever living in this living presence of God. God is alive, expressing life as my very self. (fill-in your name), I am in God and God is in me, as all that I am - yesterday, today, tomorrow, and thereafter - life and more life.
I am completely, totally, healthy and vitally alive now. (Repeat)
The wholeness of God is all there is. Our big beautiful planet, mother earth, is whole, holy perfect. What great intelligence of love to make such a wondrous life eco system; continually making more life. Each and every aspect dependent upon the other, supporting each other; perfectly balanced, alive with life, and completely whole.
Our solar system, perfectly balanced, with every planet playing its own song of life. Playing together in a great symphony of creation; whole, perfect, and complete. Contributing to the wholeness of our universe as one whole cosmic body of love living life.
This body of mine, is too a beautiful, whole holy perfect eco system; life supporting life. Every tiny molecule, atom and cell, is intelligent life of love. Creation in all of its glory playing its perfect melody of wholeness.
Now into the silence....
Thank you Divine Presence for these moments in silent communion of at-one-ment. Now let us bring our attention back to our breath, to our body and may want to stretch a little, and be fully present.
