Conquer fear of reversal

April 25, 2024 | 35 comments

Have you ever prayed for relief from a problem; experienced joyful release from that problem, but then feared a return to the previous suffering?  If so, protect your progress by knowing that the good effect of Truth is permanent.

Healing is not a revised temporal state of mortal existence that comes and goes.

Healing results from discerning spiritual reality to a greater degree.  

What we discern spiritually to be true, is always true.  It is never lost.  Any healing effect from that truth is forever.

The good effect of Truth sticks and stays.  Know it and claim it!

  1. Dear Friends of Spirit View & Even,
    I have been challenged from CKD, It’s been two years since I have been well. On dialysis for 21 months. Cannot get clear of my need for the treatments. My practitioner says my thoughts need purifying. Does anybody know a good study to attain healing?
    I truly love this forum and have been following it for years. I believe many of you are healers and well intentioned. Thank you in advance for any prayers.
    Lovingly, David

    1. Hello David ,
      It is good go hear from you again on SpiritView.
      You used to make very good contributions, and
      then you disappeared,

      With a severe challenge as you seem to have, I can’t
      think of any better way than to take up
      the constant delving into Science and Health – reading it
      through slowly, digging deeper, and looking for fresh ideas to
      spring out to you. Apply everything that speaks to you,
      to yourself, and accept it as the real you. Doing this,
      along with a deep daily study of the Lesson Sermon
      cannot fail to uplift your thoughts into the pure realm
      of Spirit, where we all belong. Look to find the deeper
      meanings in all the Bible stories that you encounter. It is
      amazing what comes to you when you are really
      searching for the Truth. I can vouch for this. God is with you all the
      way, and He has never left you. As others have said here,
      you are spiritual and perfect now, as God is knowing you,
      and you can let Him light up for you whatever
      you need to understand of your true, pure
      and spotless being in His reflection. “The Christ is here,(with you
      now) all dreams of error breaking, unloosing bonds of all captivity”.
      Bless you, and will look forward to hear of your progress.

    2. Dearest David, I do not have any idea what the problem is that you named but I do know that asking our Divine Father-Mother God to make known to you what in your thinking is causing this disruption to your well-being will set you on the path to make your demonstration. I have had a problem for two or three years now that seems to make its appearance in the spring and it is irritating. Today the thought came to me, it is a mental irritation – so what can be so irritating to me that is manifests itself ion as an itching, and painful part of my body? Nothing but aggressive mental suggestions because of some “irritating” thoughts. I seem to cherish. Wow, what a revelation. Now I know what I need to continue to work on to conquer this belief. May you find your answer as well and demonstrate your dominion over this belief of illness. God will tell you what you need to know. We have the ability to challenge aggressive mental suggestions with a resounding NO and then understand the reason why we can say NO. As spiritual ideas of God you are perfect in God. and you have the right to claim your perfection now. Many blessings to you David.

    3. I’ve read material by Christine Drissen , she’s a former attorney that has done work in Washington on forums and many platforms regarding health care. she is phenomenal teacher. she is a long line of CS P, look her up on You Tube and Christine ( I believe her own website).

      blessings to you.

      1. Thank you, dear DrSha, for suggesting the inspiring readings and talks by Christine.
        I have just read and listened to a few. Her listings of all of Mrs. Eddy’s accomplishments
        I had not realized (in one of the hand outs mentioned). How blessed we all are to
        have had and have such enlightenment that she has given to the world. It seems in many
        ways, the world is leaning in this direction of healing and her key to the scriptures is as
        pertinent now as it was in the time of her writings and as it was in Jesus’ time. I couldn’t find the site right away, but the spelling of her name is Christine Driessen .

    1. This Sentinel watch has been such an enormous help for me as well! Each time I listen, I discover fresh inspiration. So glad you recommended for David, Barbara. As my practitioner says ‘love, love, love’!

    2. loved this with Mark Sweeney. beautiful lesson and prayers to learn and pray. so very insightful. I risky for a break through from listening to this. thank you for sharing.

  2. Thank you, Evan for your wonderful insights!!
    . Dear David just keep knowing the Lord is your keeper. .He keeps your thoughts and your body pure and perfect.. You belong to God,
    And i agree Barbara that Sentinel watch is amazingly helpful !!

  3. David, stay with your present perfection moment by moment.

    This is what CSt Peter J. Henniker- Heaton did for almost ten years when in a state of paralysis and won his freedom, he never gave up or gave in.

    Check out his many articles and poems at JSH-online. There is a book, “Peter Henniker-Heaton – Man of Joy” by Kim Schuette which tells about his healing how he never gave up. You can find it at and Longyear Museum.

    One of his favorite text by Mary Baker Eddy “Undisturbed amid the jarring testimony of the material senses, Science, still enthroned, is unfolding to mortals the immutable, harmonious, divine Principle,- is unfolding Life and the universe, ever present and eternal.”

    Much love and support, you are not alone in your demonstration of Life, Truth and Love.

  4. David, A wonderful lecture you may want to listen to is “ A New View of God” speaker/lecturer is Philip Hockley. You can find it on YouTube.

    1. Yes, Love the Philip Hockley lecture on Youtube. A marvelous instantaneous healing of “one leg shorter than the other” and a “deformed” body, Evan, Your blog is so wonderful. I get so much out of it, and the comments too. Thank you.

    2. Wow! Debbie, this lecture is wonderful! Philip’s wording and explanations have
      such clarity and proven practical ways of his discovery, such as with the radio
      waves … very enlightening, put in the way he did. Seeing ourselves as God created
      us and sees us, is such a blessing when we truly understand not to let any
      limitations of mortal thought interfere what is the Truth – our spiritual, perfect
      reflection. Any belief that we are imperfect is just that, a belief and is not how
      we really are. Matter just doesn’t matter.

  5. Thank you so much for this today Evan. I love the thought that every single little extra step of spiritual understanding made is ours to claim permanently even if we have to persevere a little longer to further our progress.
    Dear David , you have some lovely comments today to help and support you. Just remember that you HAVE the perfection you need right now as the creation of everlasting Love. B.x

  6. I have learnt never to use I with a negative. You are spiritual therefore all your true thinking is good and must bless you and others. God is Mind! There is no other mind.
    Bless you.

  7. I love that what we discern spiritually is true, is always true, can never be lost and every
    healing effect from that truth is forever! Thank you, dear Evan and what a beautiful thought
    to hold to. I have never heard about using * I * with a negative before, dear Anne. That, too,
    is something great to remember. And dear David.. all of the thoughts mentioned above
    all hold you in God’s perfection. Evan’s archives here are a treasure trove of Truth(s)
    which as he says, are forever. The thoughts shared are indeed healing power of God’s
    dear Love and caring for you and everyone… . I look forward to listening to that Sentinel
    Watch, dear Barbara. Those are always so “down to earth” in their blessings and healing
    messages with such uplifting thoughts. Lots of love to you, David and All.

  8. Dear David, I really have no idea what ckd is and will not look it up, because
    that would tend to try to make it more of a reality. I’ve put it in smaller case
    letters as with mortal mind, not like with God, which is All power and presence.
    You mentioned your practitioner says your “thoughts need purifying”. The
    idea came to me to suggest reading Mrs. Eddy’s chapter in Misc. Writings, #203,
    Pond and Purpose. Within that she writes,
    “The baptism of the Holy Ghost is the spirit of Truth cleansing from all sin; giving
    mortals new motives, new purposes, new affections, all pointing upward. This
    mental condition settles into strength , freedom, deep-toned faith in God; and a
    marked loss of faith in evil, in human wisdom, human policy, ways and means.
    It develops individual capacity, increases the intellectual activities, and so quickens
    moral sensibility that the great demands of spiritual sense are recognized, and they
    rebuke the material senses, holding sway over human consciousness.
    By purifying human thought, this state of mind permeates with increased harmony
    all the minutiae of human affairs. It brings with it wonderful foresight, wisdom and
    power; it unselfs the mortal purpose, gives steadiness to resolve and success to
    endeavor… …” Mrs. Eddy goes on to write, “Beloved students [that would be All
    of us] … you have entered the path. Press patiently on; God is good and good is
    the reward of all who diligently seek God.”
    I hope this chapter helps and all the best to you and all, we students of Truth..

  9. Dear David, Your thoughts come from God, Mind, The only real thoughts. Stick with the absolute Truth.
    I read thru S&H and then Prose Works… one and start the other.
    God and His thoughts are ever- present with you! ❤️

  10. Thank you Evan and Dear David, so good to hear from you again. It’s been a long time since I’ve been blessed by your uplifting comments. Please know that I’m praying for you to have a return of those blessings that you’ve given us here so. I’m praying that you will know that there is nothing to fix. You are God’s so perfect and so loved son and we all love you!

  11. Dear David,
    You are spiritual,- a pure, unadulterated creation of divine Love,- untouched by the illusions of human history, human opinions, or medical beliefs. “O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking.” My love and prayers are with you dear one.

  12. David, This can be your first thought when awakening and your closing thought before sleep:
    God is the source and condition of existence.

  13. Dear David, I’m so happy to hear from you again, we miss very much your wonderful contributions here on SV.

    The first thought that came when I read your statement that it has been 21 months since you have been well is: You never stopped being well, you never started being well, you are wellness exemplified.

    You’ve uplifted me and many others in the SV community by sharing your deep spiritual understanding and spiritual sense of reality, so I know you have everything you need, in God, to see your complete wellness demonstrated. We are with you in knowing the Truth of your unchanging wholeness and purity. Lots of Love to you.

    I read an article last night, ‘When Healing Came,’ which was shared recently on SV. If you haven’t read it already I recommend it..

  14. Dearest Evan,

    Yet again, a wonderful message on SpiritView! Thank you!


    Dearest David,

    Aww phooey!

    Mrs. Eddy, our beloved Leader, says, ” The discoverer of Christian Science finds the path less difficult when she has the high goal always before her thoughts, than when she counts her footsteps in endeavoring to reach it.” (SH 426:5-9). The “high goal” here is that you are whole, complete, having only goodness running through you. Hold to that in your thought and you will win! Whatever else you seem to be “seeing” is just a lie about you. What would you say or think if I called you “Mario”? You would know that I had made a mistake! Those letters are simply a lie, a mistake, about you, or anyone else for that matter!

    Much love to you, David.

  15. Hello David,
    When I saw your name this morning I rejoiced. You have been such an inspiration to me and all with your helpful contributions through the years, that obviously we looked forward to them and missed them. All the responses from those today are such an inspiration of Love. We all can feel the atmosphere of Love divine surrounding us as we share with each other.
    The admonition from Mary Baker Eddy: “Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need.” and the Scientific Statement of Being taken line by line and pondering the meaning has been an immediate standby for clearing my thought when I seem to be struggling with errors lies.
    Sending much love to you and seeing you always surrounded by God Love. God knows our true being.

  16. Dear David,

    What a joy to hear from you. You have blessed me many times with your contributions to SV.

    Mary Baker Eddy wrote: “Divine Love is our hope, strength, and shield. We have nothing to fear when Love is at the helm of thought, but everything to enjoy on earth and in heaven” [Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, 113:24–27].

    I am feeling the Love today from everyone’s comments.

    Just feel the Love of God and let it pour its warmth and sunshine on you!!

  17. Dear David.
    As sings the mountain stream,
    Psst rock and verdure wild,
    So let me sing my way to Thee,
    Thy PURE and happy (blessed) child.”
    Hymn 16
    Illusions of sickness, etc. cannot be healed
    or changed but are to be seen through as
    not real, not part of God’s spiritual creation;
    they CANNOT and DO NOT exist in God’s
    atmosphere of Love Devine.

  18. Thank you dear Evan for today’s truth you give us!

    I love your passage: “What we discern spiritually to be true, is always true. It’s never lost. Any healing effect from that truth is forever.”

    Thank you all for your loving support you give David. All in all is that David is also the loved one of God, so as we all are. And he is also cared for by our Father-Mother Love as we all are. Am grateful to learn this truth and many more in Christian Science!

  19. Dear David, I listened to a wonderful lecture on YouTube by Mark Swinney, called ‘What is it that connects prayer with healing?’
    I know it will help you.

  20. David, thank you for all your hard work toward destroying this mortal belief and lessening the illusion for all mankind. Each upward step blesses us all; we support you and thank you. Onward Christian soldier.

    I Deeply appreciate Evan and the very loving and supporting SpiritView community.

  21. Dear David, YOU are not to blame and in fact nothing is the cause of this “ckd “(whatever that seems none of us know what it is).. in fact we only need to know what it is NOT.
    It is not a part of your spiritual identity. It is not created by God or ANYTHING ELSE. God IS the Cause and there is no space for this outlaw to come from to attack you.
    You are the immediate (not waiting in line) manifestation of The Word….the Word that is God. That Word which motivated and initiated all being, all life and YOU. The Bible says “The Word was with God and the Word was God”…and let’s remember that as the manifestation of God’s being, no OTHER WORD (or letters like ckd) can delineate your being, can describe you, can be a part of you can be your story or your history. Rather than feel you have to do something such as purify your thoughts, ask God “What do I need to learn from this?” If you are feeling you must DO something, then that is also making a reality of it and also inferring that you can be the creator or destroyer of anything. Know only what GOD is and after each thought on that, add ” and so am I” . Sending you blessings,
