Millions of people are feeling helpless and fearful as reports of the spread of the coronavirus come out of China and other affected places in the world. But this does not need to be the case.
Mankind is never helpless in the face of disease. There is something we can do to turn the tide on the contagion and restore health and harmony for all those affected.
Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “At a time of contagious disease, Christian Scientists endeavor to rise in consciousness to the true sense of the omnipotence of Life, Truth, and Love, and this great fact in Christian Science realized will stop a contagion” (Miscellany, p. 116).
We have no time to waste! Each of us can be realizing the omnipotence of Life, Truth and Love embracing, including and protecting our brothers and sisters in China and anywhere else in the world that needs to feel Love’s presence.
Disease is not a mystery. It is an error of belief, a suggestion that an evil power exists apart from God that can cause havoc in God’s creation and rob people of their health. This error is reversed with an understanding of Truth that validates God as the only power over man and the sustainer of eternal health that is never lost or threatened by error of any kind.
Because we live in a world of thought, the scientific spiritual thinking of a person on one side of the globe can bless the experience of a person on the other side of the globe.
Let’s stop the spread of fear and contribute to the spread of Truth and Love’s power and presence felt and known by all mankind. Health and peace will be restored once again.
