Have you reviewed your checklist for health today?
It’s common for people to measure health in physical terms, per the heartrate, body weight, content of blood, and more. But these are only symptoms of what is going on in the mind of the patient.
True health is of divine Mind and comes into a person’s experience through mind, not matter. It manifests itself in inspired states of Mind that in turn have a healthy effect on the body.
To demonstrate the best health, it’s helpful to review a spiritual checklist for health to see how one is doing.
Are you expressing love abundantly toward others? That’s a very healthy activity to engage.
How about forgiveness? Is that coming easy for you?
Is your state of mind spiritually inspired?
Are you feeling the peace of God?
Did you take some time out for prayer?
Are your thoughts weighing in on the scale of Spirit?
Are you exercising your thought with Truth?
Is your mind abounding with patience, compassion, generosity, care, thoughtfulness, and kindness? These are all very healthy states of being and have a good effect on the body.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Health is not a condition of matter, but of Mind; nor can the material senses bear reliable testimony on the subject of health” Science and Health, p. 120.
Health is not in matter. It’s in Mind! To stay healthy, think in harmony with divine Mind and let Mind take care of the body.
Examine mind more frequently, the body less, and you’ll more readily preserve health.
