Healing pain

Healing pain

A consciousness of God heals pain.

For in God there is no pain, only infinite omnipresent Love.

When struggling with pain, the temptation is often to make it go away, to get rid of it as if it is something in the first place. It feels like a reality to the sensual mind, but to God it is impossible.

Like darkness vanishes in the presence of light, pain vanishes in the presence of God.

Through prayer, the struggling mind can leave the unrealities of mortal mind behind and step into the reality of God where there is blissful harmony and peace.

It’s helpful to remember that God is not distant. God is not remote to one’s experience. God is never lost.

God is here and now. God is your Life, your core, your inner and your outer, your whole entire being.

God is all. There is none other. God is the sole reality of the universe. God is all there is to think about, acknowledge, know and feel.

God is as close to you as a circle is to round.

It’s spiritually natural and normal to think about God, to know God, to feel God and express God’s harmony and peace.

As a child of God, you have spiritual dominion to be everything God created you to be.

Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Banish the belief that you can possibly entertain a single intruding pain which cannot be ruled out by the might of Mind, and in this way you can prevent the development of pain in the body” Science and Health, p. 391. You are endowed with the spiritual capacity to say no to disease and yes to Life!

As God’s offspring, you reflect the one body of Spirit.

The one body of Spirit is dominant harmony. There is no discord in Spirit, no irritation, no bother, no distress, no disease. There is only the presence of God, certain health, everything working together for good, everything doing what it’s supposed to do, everything proper and right, correct and as God intended.

As the loved of God, you are wholly good, and divinely designed to feel only good. And all the time!

A recognition of God’s omnipresent harmony makes pain go away, for in the presence of harmony, there is only harmony.

Eddy also instructed, “Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life harmonious — as Life eternally is — can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not” Science and Health, p. 495.

God’s man is not a physical body prone to suffering. God’s man is not a vulnerable mortal swinging back and forth between good and evil.

God’s man is wholly good. God’s man is an exact manifestation of God’s reality, and in God, there is no pain. There is only harmony!

Leave the mortal dream of life in matter behind. It is of no benefit, and it is not obligatory, necessary or required. To spiritual sense, it is as nothing, as a passing shadow in the night with no form, outline or place to call its own.

Man is the child of God, the offspring of Spirit, the offspring of harmony.

You are a spiritual being with spiritual identity and spiritual individuality that is forever yours to enjoy.

As God’s child, there isn’t anything wrong with you. You do not have to suffer. You do not have to wrestle on end with a suffering sense. Let it go. Let Christ lift your thought to immortal Truth. Claim your spiritual heritage in God. Be everything God created you to be. Be free!

Science and Health reminds us, “The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all space. That is enough!” page 520.

When you have infinite omnipresent Love, you have everything. And there is no pain there. Only peace.

    With all my heart, I THANK YOU! for this amazing statement! As I read it the first time I was immediately filled with a sense of wondrous well-being and joyful strength! God’s remarkable presence AS our lives became apparent so clearly to me because of this! I have a much deeper realization of the wonderful truth that “God is Love”. My deepest appreciation for this and every SpiritView inspiration!

    Dear Evan:

    This is exactly what we need to hear….Snake talk is using pain as one of its best(seemingly) arguments to makes us discouraged….we need your ideas to stay on top and express our dominion and victory over these lies! Thank-you!

    This article is like David running out to meet Goliath. Strong, on the offensive! What was the result? The giant blustering Goliath was defeated by a young shepherd boy who knew that God was the only Power and Presence. Evan, this is simply amazing! Thank you!

    This is SO GREAT Evan! Thankyou! I really FEEL those ideas strongly ..almost as if for the first time. So clear and true. I think I’ll record that onto my phone so I can listen to it again anytime!
    This is what I call “DIVINE LOGIC ” . It is a treatment in itself.

    Evan, that was amazing, and just what I needed. I love this: “To spiritual sense, it is as nothing, as a passing shadow in the night with no form, outline or place to call its own.” Pain seemed so real to me, my constant companion, and now I know it is just a passing shadow. That surely takes the seeming power from it!

    Thank you Evan for this beautiful, powerful prayer-message.
    Later when I have more quiet time I will come back to this and pray with these thoughts. To get more into my own prayer-zone I’ll probably substitute I, me. or my where Evan says you or your or man. And address God more directly (“in you, dear God, dear Father. there is no pain, for you are infinite Love”). And of course the spiritual truths in this wonderful message can be applied to any challenge or discord, not just pain.
    Thank you Grace, for bringing up David and Goliath. The truths in this blog are the stone that David slung at Goliath’s forehead and destroyed him. I love that despite the giant’s apparent overwhelming advantage, his strength and size and weapons were useless. He never came close enough to David to touch him.
    Thanks again, Evan, for this powerful healing gift.

    Thank you, Evan! I am currently reading “We Knew Mary Baker Eddy, Vol. 11, Expanded Edition and it is just amazing how those early workers, who were taught by Mrs. Eddy, were able to heal bodily pain and severe physical problems with just one Treament! The whole focus back in those early days was to relieve people from pain and physical suffering. They studied S&H, took classes from Mrs. Eddy, and knew how to Treat the belief of pain and illness in the body. Soooooo many people back then were healed, raised from their beds literally, and it became to be considered normal and nature! Let’s do that again today!!

    So glad that I took the time this morning. Pain, nerves, outside influences, pressusre, challenge us for reality. That matter is real it hurts. Only the Mind of God is real all other is false evidence. Must claim the reality. Thanks

    Thank you Evan! This applies also to mental pain as well as physical. Mental pain has no more reality than does physical pain. And the last quote really sums everything up. Very helpful for the. Current trial I am facing. Thank you again.

    Thanks so much, Evan, for giving us a much needed (at least for me) Christian Science treatment. And, for the instructions on how to print it out. I have done this and will keep it to refer to when praying and studying.

    Dear Evan,
    After reading your powerful and. beautiful article this quote from S&H 192:23 was so clear “The good you do and embody gives you the only power obtainable. ” You clearly “do”and “embody” good which blesses one and all! Thank you! We are all blessed.

    Thank you for this wonderful treatment for healing. It is certainly all powerful. I’ve been trying to insert confusion/memory loss into places where it fits. Perhaps some day you’ll help us deal with this error of thought which tries to sneak in.

    I am so grateful for your daily “SpiritView”. I love that title

    Yes, WOW! Evan. What a wonderful treatment. Thank you. (=

    A “Daily Thought” I printed out from the Christian Science Quarterly Bible Lessons recently, came to mind when I read this blog:

    “Mentally insist that harmony is the fact, and that sickness is a temporal dream. Realize the presence of health and the fact of harmonious being, until the body corresponds with the normal conditions of health and harmony.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy.

    “sickness could be replaced with the word “pain”

    I love the fact that you dealt with the unreality of pain and dismissed it as impossible. This keeps us from digging into the underlying cause, which in reality doesn’t exist either. Much to be grateful for. Thanks so much for this precious resource.
