Many people worry about walking around in public, traveling on airplanes, and being near other people for fear of catching Covid. From a medical point of view, the reason for fear is obvious, for the medical reasoning teaches that viruses may be present and contagious.
However, the medical view is not the final verdict on what is true and what is not true. It is a very constricted perspective that excludes spiritual reality from its reasoning, and thus fails to see that one can demonstrate protection from contagion when in a right state of mind.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “A calm, Christian state of mind is a better preventive of contagion than a drug, or than any other possible sanative method; and the “perfect Love” that “casteth out fear” is a sure defense”
(Misc. Writings, p. 229).
If moving around in public where the virus may be present, “A calm, Christian state of mind,” will neutralize that virus and render it harmless.
Instead of capitulating to fear, rise in a consciousness of the omnipotence and omnipresence of Love, conquer that fear, and go forth with a clear understanding that you are walking around in God’s universe where divine Love is ever-present to keep you and your neighbor healthy, strong, and well. Have no fear of a virus. Rather, honor God’s power and presence and demonstrate safety in a consciousness of Truth.
In a right state of mind, you can do what you need to do without fear. You can be safe wherever you go.
