I hear often from patients statements like, “I’ve been trying so hard to get rid of this problem, but it won’t go away!”
There’s a tendency of the human mind to believe that evil is real and needs to be gotten rid of, as if it’s a real thing that needs to be removed.
But as Jesus Christ taught, evil is a lie (John 8:44). A lie is not a substantive thing that needs to be disposed of. It’s an illusion that needs to be replaced with truth.
The best way to get rid of a problem is to focus on the spiritual truth that proves the problem unreal.
It’s like a musician learning a new piece of music. If he hears a mistake while practicing, he consults his music to see how the notes are supposed to be played. He then plays the correct notes, and the mistake vanishes.
Healing is the same way. Trouble, sickness, conflict, fear, problems, and their kin are mistaken views of the harmonious Life God has given us to live. They are like mistakes a pianist makes when learning new music.
To get rid of the mistakes, seek out Truth, the spiritual truth about God. Truth is the “music,” to consult when seeking spiritual healing.
As we follow the music of Truth, mistaken views and beliefs dissolve and healing happens. The problems go away.
A problem is not a real thing to get rid of. It’s an opportunity to understand Truth better.
