A favorite hymn in the Christian Science hymnal begins,
“In atmosphere of Love divine,
We live, and move, and breathe” Hymn 144.
The mortal mind often argues that man lives in a physical environment filled with hazards and dangers to one’s health. But this is an error of belief that can be neutralized with spiritual truth. We can pray and prevent harm to our health from various plants and material substances around us.
Jesus Christ proved the power of divine Mind over physical environments and taught us how to exercise the same power. He said,
“These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name…if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed” Mark 16:17-18, NLT.
“Those who believe,” are they who believe in the omnipresence and omnipotence of God.
If one has any fear of allergies, it may be an opportunity to accept the allness of God more.
God is all good. God is all harmony and peace, the only cause and effect, causing all things to work together for good in all His creation. Each of us live in this harmonious atmosphere of divine Love, called God.
Perspective is everything though. We need to know we live in God’s universe, and not be unwittingly believing that we live apart from God in a kind of mortal mind danger zone.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “If you decide that climate or atmosphere is unhealthy, it will be so to you. Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take” Science and Health, p. 392. To stay healthy, decide that you live in the atmosphere of divine Love, and then stay there with your thought.
Matter is never a threat to Spirit. Spirit is immune to all material ills. In Truth, you are a spiritual being, living a spiritual life, reflecting a spiritual God. Matter is not a threat to you. Your spirituality is immunity to material threat.
Knowing that you live in the omnipresence of Love, and then bearing witness to Love’s presence all around you, neutralizes fear of allergies and negates them.
As the apostle Paul wrote, “In Him we live and move and have our being” Acts 17:28, NKJV.
We are not helpless mortals stranded in a miserable material location. We are spiritual immortals living in the kingdom of heaven.
Claim the truth about your real environment with God. Know that you live in God’s presence and have only the good effect of God to feel, experience and express.
Mary Baker Eddy also wrote, “Mind, God, sends forth the aroma of Spirit, the atmosphere of intelligence”
Science and Health, p. 191. Breathe in the atmosphere of divine intelligence. Let the truth about God’s good universe inspire your thought to the heights of heaven.
There are no dangerous smells in the kingdom of heaven. Only harmony and peace to take in and enjoy.
