Healing Is Communication
Sickness is a Break in Communication
Projection makes perception, and you cannot see beyond it. Again and again you have attacked your brother, because you saw in him a shadow figure in your private world. And thus it is you must attack yourself first, for what you attack is not in others. Its only reality is in your own mind, and by attacking others you are literally attacking what is not there.
The Body is a Product of Your Unreal
Since you are causeless, the body has no causation. It can be neither sick nor well, nor live nor die.
Sickness is a decision you have made. It is the mind and not the body that is sick. The resistance to recognizing this is enormous, because the existence of the world as you perceive it depends on the body being the decision-maker.
At no time is the body real at all. It is always remembered or anticipated, but never experienced just now. The body's health is fully guaranteed, because it is not limited by time, by weather or fatigue, by food and drink, or any laws you made it serve before. You need do nothing now to make it well, for sickness has become impossible.
As long as your brother consents to suffer, you will be unhealed.
Healing is Release From Fear
To connect any holy instant to the healing of your apparent body disease is much simpler to do than you heretofore suspected. It is, in fact, not a doing at all. You are always being healed completely each moment despite your selfconstructed objection.
Remember, you are suffering from the disease of projected self-identification.
All you need do is rise up and say "I have no use for this." There is no form of sickness that would not be cured at once.
The world changes as you change your mind. Those who are healed become the instruments of healing. Nor does time elapse between the instant they are healed, and all the grace of healing it is given them to give.
Do not allow your brother to be sick, for if he is, you have abandoned him to his own dream by sharing it with him.
Healing is communication. Only minds communicate, bodies do not.
Recognize that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body. What does this recognition "cost"? It costs the whole world you see.
As you let yourself be healed, you see all those around you, or who cross your mind, or whom you touch or those who seem to have no contact with you, healed along with you.
Could you but realize for a single instant the power of healing that the reflection of God, shining in you, can bring to all the world, you could not wait to make the mirror of your mind clean to receive the image of the holiness that heals the world.
All mind is whole, and the belief that part of it is physical, or not mind, is a fragmented or sick interpretation.
