If you have any food issues in your life, it can be helpful to understand that divine Mind governs your entire being and produces all the conditions necessary to keep you healthy and well, not food.
Common belief teaches that food controls health and wellness. But this is a misinformed view of what is really happening.
Mind governs the body, not food. The mind decides what effect food is going to have on the body before any food is put into one’s mouth.
If eating is accompanied with fear, then fear is what needs to be handled to prevent any bad effect from eating. If one is eating with ignorance, then the ignorance needs to be resolved with understanding to prevent a bad effect.
Mary Baker Eddy has provided the solution for resolving food issues in this statement,
“If mortals think that food disturbs the harmonious functions of mind and body, either the food or this thought must be dispensed with, for the penalty is coupled with the belief. Which shall it be? If this decision be left to Christian Science, it will be given in behalf of the control of Mind over this belief and every erroneous belief, or material condition” Science and Health, p. 388.
If you study her instruction closely, you see that she is not steering thought in the direction of studying the composition of food to decide which material foods are healthy and which ones are unhealthy. She is encouraging her reader to go higher. To rise above so-called dietary law, to God’s law, to seeing divine Mind in control of food, fear, ignorance and every condition of mind and body.
Health is a state of Mind reflected, not a condition of the body in flux. As a child of God, you reflect the perfect health of divine Mind.
Food does not affect divine Mind. Divine Mind governs food and man.
Gain more mastery over food by understanding yourself to be the reflection of divine Mind, rather than a casualty of what you put into your mouth.
