Eradicate images of disease

July 7, 2021 | 24 comments


“Eradicate the image of disease from the perturbed thought before it has taken tangible shape in conscious thought, alias the body, and you prevent the development of disease.”

~ Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 400

If a pianist holds a wrong note in his thought when he attempts to play a piece, the wrong note will show up in his playing. Once the wrong note is corrected in his thought with the right note, it will no longer show up in his playing. The right note will be heard!

The same rule applies to how the human mind “plays its tunes” on the physical body. The body registers what the human mind holds in its conscious and unconscious thought. It’s wise to keep all images of disease out of thought so they have no chance of registering on the body.

To stay healthy, eradicate all images of disease. Keep thought filled with impressions and inspirations of Truth and Love!

  1. As always, thank you. The analogy of a pianist, holding a wrong note in thought, expecting to play a piece perfectly really resonated with me…. so clear! Perfect!!

  2. Wonderful thoughts and a powerful message, Evan. Thank you!

    (By the way, eradicate is misspelled in title and email subject line)

  3. It all takes place in thought, doesn’t it? Thank you, Evan, what a wonderful way to start the day. I’m so thankful for your blog. Part of the my “daily bread”. Always so practical. I also want to express deep thanks for whoever crafts your accompanying photos. They are always on target and always just perfect!

  4. You want to change the spelling in your heading, Evan!
    ERADICATE, not eradiate! Except maybe to so shine the light of God’s All-in-ALLNESS on it that its shadow nothingness is replaced with glow of God’s love.
    Doesn’t it say that in Ephesians 5? (J B Phillips translation):
    For light is capable of “showing up” everything for what it really is. It is even possible (after all, it happened to you!) for light to turn the thing it shines upon into light also.

  5. As a musician, I found your message note-perfect and a good reminder to strive to even more harmonious with love and truth in my daily thoughts.

  6. “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God”
    We might also say: Blessed are the pure in thought for they shall have health, prosperity, and longevity.

  7. After 18 months of high level pain , and no agreement or substantial help from several doctors , this is the idea I am trying to embrace going forward.

    I am thanking the DIVINE PHYSICIAN for my healing , and saying “Jesus I trust you.”

    1. That is wonderful. Thank you Martine.

      Thank you Evan and all contributors of such a necessary way to watch our thought effectively. I have often used the article Angie linked. Very to the point as well. I am grateful for all.

  8. I’m eradicating as I’m writing this. Replacing a physical problem with spiritual perfection.

  9. Thanks!!! This is a primary reason I’m so thankful for your encouraging vlog – to point our thought in the healthy direction. The musical reference is right on too – don’t play sour notes, don’t think sour thoughts. Thanks again.

  10. We were watching an ice skating performance in which the skater missed a step. We heard the commentator remark that the skater had not made that mistake in practice. My husband remarked, “why would she practice a mistake?”

  11. Easier said than done sometimes. I have unpleasant images in thought that have been there for years I love Mrs. Eddy’s advice “Beloved C.S. tists, Keep your mind so full of Truth. Life and Love that sin, disease and death cannot enter..” But she also says, “You must control evil thoughts in the first instance, or they will control you in the second” S&H p.234. Sticking with the truth of “The battle is not yours but God’s reminds me that divine Mind ,not mortal mind, is the only power and the victory is ours if we stick to that !.

    1. Each comment above helps me clear the air, to eliminate evil effects from hearing conversations while exercising with a group, as they freely lament over body flaws and material remedies, in detail, I exercise and don’t contribute to their conversation, but listen quietly praying to see them as God made, them, pure and perfect, with no mistakes, in His image and likeness, Adding the Truth that there are no MISTAKES made by God, in HIs kingdom prepares me to Love them more, refute the mistakes they believe they suffer, and clear my thinking as we enjoy perfect movement together. Thank you Even, this SV lifts my thought and frees me from “weighing in” on the material picture. The snake oil salesman tempts us all to turn to material remedies, not God who created us perfect, when he created EVERYTHING, because we reflect HIS image and likeness is the TRUTH. Between last session and today, thank you for providing the answer I’ve been seeking.
