It’s not necessary to live in fear of germs to stay healthy.
Like driving down the highway safely, one does not need to think about all the possible ways one may have an accident to have a safe drive. You focus on how to drive your car well, stay in your lane, respect other drivers, adapt quickly to unusual circumstances and obey the traffic laws. You can drive your car with total peace of mind, knowing that the divine Mind will provide the direction, instruction, and wisdom you need to deal with any situation that pops up along the way. There is no need for fear.
In today’s pandemic environment, we can “drive safely,” through it, by understanding the truth about health.
Health is not a material variable. It’s a fixed spiritual quality built into our being as children of God, that no germ ever touches. Germs are not a threat to health, and this truth understood, protects our body from contagion.
Metaphysically armed with an understanding of health, there is no fear of germs. One is not naïve, ignorant, or uncaring about the sanitary demands of the moment, however, thought is not dominated by fear of bad things that might happen, but impressed with all the good things happening with God that keeps one safe and well. It’s a very peaceful, happy, and intelligent way to live.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Fear is the fountain of sickness…” It’s critically important to live free of fear to stay healthy. She continued to write, “Fear is the fountain of sickness, and you master fear and sin through divine Mind; hence it is through divine Mind that you overcome disease” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 391).
Honor divine Mind’s ability to keep you healthy and safe in all circumstances. Have no fear of germs, and stay healthy.
