Humanity has been largely educated to believe that infection begins with a germ. But in metaphysics, one learns that contagion is transmitted in mind, not through matter, and it’s one’s mental conditions that need to be protected and guarded above all else. If the enemy suggestion is neutralized with truth and not allowed to gain credibility in consciousness, it will not adversely impact the body. Both mind and body remain safe.
A convicted consciousness of God’s omnipotence is a strong defense against suggestions of contagion.
In praying for a strong defense, I realized that infections take many different forms. Fear, selfishness, anger, hatred, greed, apathy, laziness, self-righteousness, pride, self-pity, judgmentalism and their kin, are all forms of mortal mind infection. They are germs of mortal mind, suggestions of a power alien to God’s consciousness of pure goodness, and if allowed to multiply, would run around in thought causing negative consequences. In belief, they would cause mental, and then physical, dis-ease.
Aw! I thought. To build a strong defense, it is wise to guard against all types of infection.
We live in the omnipotence of God. God is everywhere—around, above, below, in front and behind. We are always safe in God’s presence. However, to demonstrate this truth, the demand is to stay spiritually in-tune with this reality and prove it to be our reality. We do this by knowing God’s omnipresence.
It’s impossible to know God’s omnipresence and to be angry with our neighbor at the same time. It’s impossible to know Love’s omnipresence and feel fear at the same time. The cure for all types of infection, is knowing God’s reality and living true to it. In God’s reality, infections disappear, for mortal mind suggestions cannot simultaneously dwell with a consciousness of spiritual reality.
In spiritual consciousness, there are no infections of error. Only the presence of Truth to know, feel and experience.
In your prayers, guard against all types of infection, and stay healthy!
