Be a carrier of truth

December 2, 2021 | 14 comments


There is often talk during this pandemic about who carries germs and who doesn’t. A healthier conversation would center on what is happening in consciousness, rather than what is happening as effect on the body.

Mary Baker Eddy astutely observed, “We weep because others weep, we yawn because they yawn, and we have smallpox because others have it; but mortal mind, not matter, contains and carries the infection” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 153).

To promote good health in your home and community, be sure to carry spiritual truth in thought that helps everyone’s thought stay in a healthy place that keeps them safe and well.

Contagion is mental, not physical. If only good healthy spiritual thoughts are floating around in the atmosphere of thought, then only good healthy effects will appear.

Be a carrier of uplifted inspired spiritual thoughts that promote health. Everyone will benefit.

  1. Thank you Evan for always bringing the most current and pertinent issues, that need healing, to the forefront of thought. This give us the opportunity to address them individually and this also then naturally becomes a collective treatment, blessing our communities and the world.

    My prayer acknowledges, that as God’s ideas we have spiritual sense (consciousness), rather than a material, false sense of our being, our divine (only) heritage. I have been praying with the following statements and keeping them firmly in thought, so I can reject what doesn’t apply to spiritual knowing.

    Spiritual sense is a conscious, constant capacity to understand God.
    (Science and Health, p. 209:31–32)

    Spiritual sense is the discernment of spiritual good.
    (Science and Health, p. 505:20–21)

    Thank you Evan and the Spirit View family for daily inspirations, that uplift, comfort, heal and steer thought into more spiritual channels.

  2. Just to clarify… I meant that spiritual sense is our divine (only) heritage. We haven’t the capacity to manifest thoughts that we weren’t divinely programmed to have. .

    1. Thank you Farida, I loved the statement of Truth that we (as God’s creations) actually cannot have thoughts that God has not put into us. Then it follows that, as Evan said, “only good, healthy, spiritual thoughts are floating around in the atmosphere of thought, then only good, healthy effects will appear.”

      I read a comment a while back here on SpiritView that I’ve kept with me, ‘One idea of God cannot harm another idea of God, but they can only be a blessing to each other.’ I believe it was Uta who said this and I thank her. So as pure, pristine ideas of God, we are carriers only of blessings, not harm. Happy greetings today to our Spiritview family!

      1. Thank you Rose that you mentioned that Truth I once commented, namely that one idea of God cannot harm another idea. In former times I needed that truth when i feared a dog or a bee or an insect that they cannot do me any harm, as they are also God’s ideas. Thank you for your inspired comment, dear Rose.♡
        Yesterday Evan admonished us so right to express kindness, that means to reflect God. And for me today’s SpiritView is the follow up idea. To have loving and kind thoughts and be kind and loving is contagious and leads to health. Mrs. Eddy says in one of her writings so in this sense …if one only would believe that joy and kindness and the nearness of a healthy person is contagious, it would be so… well I believe that because if I seem to be miserable and meet my friend who is joyfull and loving to me I immediately feel well again.

        Today after listening to the lesson sermon and praying the Daily Prayer I drove shopping with the firm knowing tha God is all around us, guiding each one of the people on the street and in the supermarket. I felt so good with such conciousness. And at the end when I had to pay there was such a nice and humorous talk with the worker at the counter. . I am grateful to know God’s presence whereever we are.
        However it was Evan’s today’s SpiritView which lead me to go so spiritually prepared shopping. Thank you dear Evan for your daily metaphysical and loving push into our day with God!♡

  3. Excellent, Farida – those are very inspiring spiritual thoughts to keep in mind constantly, and
    very pertinent to Evan’s topic, and will help to keep us uplifted and enable us to benefit others
    as well. Thank you.

    Mrs. Eddy advises us in Miscellaneous Writings (Ways that are Vain) to “keep (our) thoughts to filled with Truth and Love, that sin disease and death cannot enter them”.

  4. Thank you for the reminder to be only a Truth thought carrier. Yesterday while watching the news to see my friends daughter be interviewed for a sports related topic, I felt increasingly incredulous and shocked as I never watch the news. (I choose to get my news from various other sources) Everything was gloom and doom of the worst kind. I allowed my thought to go down into the pit of negativity. I became frustrated that we are now dealing with yet another strain of the complete unreality of Covid. I was annoyed that “people” haven’t wised up yet to the understanding that fear spreads in the form of disease. Blah, blah, blah.
    I started reading from Science and Health and another favorite book of mine, “Addresses and Other Writings on Christian Science” by Doris Dufour Henty. Somewhere along the way the thought came strongly, “you don’t have to change/worry over everyone’s thinking, you just have to change your own and that will help over all.” It sounds simple, but as we all know, a clear understanding of a thought or idea from God is like the brightest shining light when it comes and it was enough to turn me around, thankfully. This isn’t about me and all the other minds our there needing to figure it out. This is about knowing the Truth myself and understanding that everyone is God’s self-expression and that we all have spiritual sense to understand spiritual reality. Error always wants to keep us tripped up, confused, mesmerized, doubtful, frustrated, annoyed because then we are actually, unwittingly on errors side. As students of Christian Science we are staying alert and only siding with God, Mind, Life, Truth, Love, Spirit, Soul. It’s the only side to stand with.

    1. I love how people had already typed in some of the quotes, comments, and applications that I was going to type. And then I was reminded of another analyzed and published form of a more costly and unfair and deadly contagion not recognized and not corrected. I feel and importance and urgency to improve my prayer and practice to correct and replace this contagion that is far worse than one of viruses or bacteria or orgasm parasites.

      It is being seen in analysis of artificial intelligence scouring the Internet especially social media. It is infecting so much other economy and politics and churches. It’s going viral. And it has all levels of parasitism exploding it. That is systemic racism.

      The artificial intelligence is already documented as learning and applying and spreading assumptions of guilt or danger or excuses for self-defense. The artificial intelligence is already lumping certain people together as terrorists, criminals, crime victims, poor students, health risks, insurance claimants, easily-manipulated buyers or voters, etc. It is already being used for scholarship application analysis, job applications, jury selection etc. And it is generally not noticed and worse, totally accepted because of the internalized systemic racism and worldview that has been so contagious and so destructive for so many peoples lives and the profit of prison slavery traffickers, weapon sales, war profiteers, housing prices, internet advertising, click bait to get viewers/consumers, etc. This is a contagion of lazy contempt that other rises and divides in conquers because it spreads fear and self justifying close-mindedness and closed-heartedness, Racism is then documented as actually causing brain damage and harm to the immune system And every system of the human body observed and measured. Whether it is the Person believing and acting on racism or the person feeling targeted and oppressed by it, including micro aggressions and generational trauma.

      So thank you to all of you who already typed what I was going to type because that left me to be more open minded to this new application for my prayer on a contagion that is affecting far more people are doing far more harm than a simple variation on viruses.

    2. Thanks Trista. This was really helpful with so many good points! And so true on error always wanting to distract us and trip us up to unwittingly be on error’s side. Appreciate the statement of only siding with God – the only side to stand with.

  5. Thank you so much Trista for sharing your clear realization of Truth that lifted your thought out of the fog of the widespread claims of evil we seem to be surrounded in. Like you say, one inspired thought from God is enough. One with God is a majority!!

    May each one today feel the presence, authority, regenerating power, and all encompassing love of God on his/her daily walk!

  6. Wow! I feel like I just dug up a buried treasure chest full of gold and doubloons and opened it! What a rich outpouring of ideas today. Thank you everyone for these helpful ways to pray. And thank you Evan for the platform.

  7. Much appreciation to Evan and all SpiritView commenters!
    This morning when I found a potentially poisonous spider in my bathroom sink, I was reminded of Mrs. Eddy’s article “Love Your Enemies” in Miscellaneous Writings, “I say to others: Hate no one; for hatred is a plague-spot that spreads its virus and kills at last.” The antidote is to love, and my assurance is that “Love is reflected in love.” All is infinite Love and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all!
    “Divine Love cannot be deprived of its manifestation, or object.” S&H 304:9
    “To infinite, ever-present Love, all is Love, and there is no error, no sin, sickness, nor death.” S&H 567:7

    I am the place where God shines through,
    For He and I are one, not two.
    He wants me where, and as I am,
    I need not fret, nor fear, nor plan.
    If I will be relaxed and free
    He’ll carry out his work through me.
    Dear M, I believe this is a poem by Lona Ingwerson of Laguna Beach, CA.

  9. Thanks!
    I appreciate the information.
    Being the place where God shines through,
    is being, God expressed
    Doesn’t get better than that.
    Happy expressing God, everyone.
