Do you ever get agitated over things people do that really aren’t that big of a deal? If so, it could be a sign that you would benefit from defending your thinking from mental malpractice.
Mental malpractice is any type of thinking that denies God’s presence. It leads to harm.
For instance, a feeling of, “I get easily ticked off,” is mental malpractice. Or, “My partner keeps doing things that upset me,” is malpractice. Any sensation, suggestion, fear, or belief that would justify nervousness, tension, anxiety, anger, or unkind outburst, is some type of malpractice.
In as much as the human mind may want to justify its agitated feelings and argue that they are unavoidable, the human mind is wrong. Agitation is avoidable and unnecessary.
God created us to be peaceful creatures. We have spiritual sense that allows us to stay in touch with spiritual reality and to feel the innate peace God has given us to experience as a part of Life’s on-going joys.
If mortal mind sends a negative suggestion in the form of “I get easily ticked off,” that suggestion can be quickly reversed with the spiritual truth that we know only how to love! God created man to express love, not angst.
It’s normal for us to love, not to get agitated.
To keep yourself peaceful, prayerfully defend your consciousness from any outside influence that would agitate or upset your perspective. Know that the one Mind alone affects your experience, that you are a peaceful child of God abiding under the influence of divine Love, and that malpractice has no influence over your thought. Find your peace with God and live free of agitation.
“Christian Scientists, be a law to yourselves that mental malpractice cannot harm you either when asleep or when awake” (Science and Health, p. 442).
