Healthy living

February 28, 2023 | 16 comments

Millions of people are seeking healthier lifestyles. They may focus attention on diet, exercise, less time on social media, more time with family members, or other activity that breaks them out of unhealthy selfish routines.

There’s one course of action that will bring the best results of all. Improved spiritual thinking!

To think spiritual is to think about God and how the one Mind shapes and forms your experience with Truth and Love.

A diet of spiritual truth is the healthiest diet of all.

Exercising thought with prayer melts off pounds of worry and stress.

A consciousness of infinite Love reduces anxiety and fear. It heals disease.

Knowing God’s endless goodness makes one feel that goodness.

Spiritual living is healthy living. It’s the best lifestyle choice there is.

Go for the best and live the best. Improved spiritual thinking gets you there.

“Whatever benefit is produced on the body, must be expressed mentally, and thought should be held fast to this ideal”
(Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy, p. 392).

  1. Dear Evan, I am very very thankful to you, that you always translate human thoughts into spiritual ideas which comfort and heal! Today`s SpiritView is very needed and helpful not only to me but, I think, to most people in the world. It calms the fear that one is not doing the right things to live healthy enough! After I read this my first doing was to pray and listen to God`s guidance what to do best to express Him today.
    Wonderful, it is a sweet and doable healthplan for every day. The weekly lesson sermon is a helpful tool to accomplish our daily spiritual duty and divine “health exercises” 🙂

  2. Thank you Evan. Talking about people’s lifestyle is very interesting . You have mentioned a number of ways people think, would make them healthy and peaceful. Thank you for being clear about the fact that living a Christ-like life is the best solution.
    I experienced this when I looked physically fat and shapeless and I was asked by people around me to change my diet and also go in for some body exercises. All these did not help as I felt my time was being wasted.
    I turned to the books and tried to live life to the best of the spiritual understanding that came to me.
    Finally I forgot about the weight struggle,but found out that I was in good shape. I could wear my clothes and get the same fitting, I had before the error. The scriptures teach us.that “Ye shall know the truth and the truth will set you free” I am free indeed. Smart and flexible. I am peaceful too.

    1. Thank you, Ajayl Grace, for sharing this wonderful demonstration of Truth! Your ‘diet’ of truth is clearly the ONLY ‘diet’ that succeeds in revealing the shape & form of our Father-Mother’s creating. So many today struggle with overweight–I have made it a practice to silently refute that matter lie when i see anyone with that issue. Have you thought about sending this testimony in for our periodicals? Many would benefit from it, I’m sure!

      1. Yes Nan I agree that Ajayi’s testimony would be a great one to have published in the periodicals. People spend billions of dollars a year on physical weight loss products and programs and on things to make themselves look younger and more physically beautiful – because we are taught in society that we are physical beings and therefore we need physical solutions.

        I myself have been dealing with suggestions/temptations about physical aging (wrinkles, dull skin, sagging skin, age spots, etc) and have actually researched some popular solutions, but it does not feel right to go that way. Thanks Ayayi for your great inspiration to only see myself as God sees me, spiritually. This is good spiritual work and I will get busy on lifting up my thought to higher truths about this. And thank you Evan for a timely and important topic.

  3. Thank you all for these thoughts I have been praying to know what is my right place and form and this so addresses those prayers. Peace to the struggling heart.

  4. Wonderful Evan and much needed by myself. It made me think about this verse from hymn 148;

    Green pastures are before me,
    Which yet I have not seen.
    Bright skies will soon be o’er me,
    Where darkest clouds have been.
    My hope I cannot measure
    My path in life is free.
    My father has my treasure,
    And he will walk with me.

    I’m most grateful for the daily spiritual messages on Spirit View❣️

  5. These thoughts are very refreshing. In a world that seems obsessed with
    the superficial, it is wonderful to know what is really True about our
    I am reminded of the message from Mrs. Eddy’s statement on page 530: 6-12
    of Science and Health, “In divine Science, man is sustained by God, the
    divine Principle of being. The earth, at God’s command, brings forth food
    for man’s use. Knowing this, Jesus once said, “Take no thought for your life,
    what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink”, presuming not on the prerogative
    of his creator, but recognizing God, the Father and Mother of all, as able to
    feed and clothe man as he doth the lilies.” And Pg.212 -22, “God alone makes
    and clothes the lilies of the field, and this He does by means of Mind, not

  6. Thank you so much Ajayi Grace for this wonderful testimony of healing by applying the priceless teachings of Christian Science!

  7. Thank you all for these healing messages these are all very helpful and so true. God has been lifting my thoughts and prayers to new heights, especially with all these truths which heal.
    Thank you all!

  8. Thanks so much J for the talk by Channing Walker, a favorite of mine ❤️ for many years. This is a keeper which I will treasure! Also, thanks to all for sharing your thoughts and experiences!

  9. This Blog is something I can’t give up and is the inspiration we all need to help us work through the material picture of aging, weight gain, PR for Material answers. For this I am most grateful Evan and for the wonderful interaction/conversation of this Spirit View family. 🙂

  10. Evan posted a wonderful SpiritView on 21 December 2021 called Weightless Being which for me was a keeper. I don’t know how to give a link to it but it should be available for people to find in the archive. X
