When I am healed, I am not healed alone.
This Lesson clearly brings out Our Oneness, that the blessings We give and receive belong to everyOne, and that Our Love cannot be partial, rather universal.
You have thought that You could love him, not her. It was Your preference, and that was that. That is not Love; it’s partiality. It leaves You unhealed.
1 Today’s idea remains the central thought on which salvation rests. The necessity for the forgiveness that becomes great Love for All Your Others. For healing is the opposite of all the world’s ideas which dwell on sickness and on separate states. Sickness is a retreat from others and a shutting off of joining. Sickness results from limiting Your Love; thereby squelching It. It prefers one Brother to an Other, resulting in this: It becomes a door that closes on a separate self and keeps it isolated and alone.
You cannot shut out One, without shutting out All Your Others.
2 Sickness is isolation, caused by shutting out. For it seems to keep one self apart from all the rest to suffer what the others do not feel. Separate from One, and You will separate from every One. This is the reason why You do insist You have a body. Minds are joined, and bodies surely aren’t. It gives the body final power to make the separation real and keep the mind in solitary prison, split apart and held in pieces by a solid wall of sickened flesh which it can not surmount. Yes, this is graphic. It is also truth. The world obeys the laws that sickness serves, but healing operates apart from them. The world was made by separated thought; Heaven for healing.
3 It is impossible that anyone be healed alone. It is always quite an aggressive form of separation; often hidden when it takes place wholly in One’s consciousness. In sickness must he be apart and separate. But healing is his own decision to be one again and to accept his Self with all its parts intact and unassailed. Now You begin to see why wholeness is synonym and requisite to healing. In sickness does his Self appear to be dismembered and without the unity that gives it life. But healing is accomplished as he sees the body has no power to attack the universal oneness of God’s Son. Oneness is mental. It is the function of Your consciousness.
4 Sickness would prove that lies must be the truth. It says that God has forgotten and no longer cares for You. These are blatant lies. But healing demonstrates that truth is true. It shows that God always remembers You and does sustain You. The separation sickness would impose has never really happened. To be healed is merely to accept what always was the simple truth and always will remain exactly as it has forever been. God is always Love. Yet eyes accustomed to illusions must be shown that what they look upon is false. So healing, never needed by the truth, must demonstrate that sickness is not real. Such is its function.
5 Healing might thus be called a counter-dream which cancels out the dream of sickness in the name of truth but not in truth itself. For it fixes what could have never really happened to You because God is Love. Just as forgiveness overlooks all sins that never were accomplished, healing but removes illusions that have not occurred. Thus the great importance of forgiveness. Just as the real world will arise to take the place of what has never been at all, healing offers restitution for imagined states and false ideas which dreams embroider into pictures of the truth. You see the importance of forgiveness along with healing.
6 Yet think not healing is unworthy of your function here. Since healing shows that Christ is very real. For anti-Christ becomes more powerful than Christ to those who dream the world is real. In fact, opposing Christ is but the foundation of the dream. The entire dream rests on the denial of Christ’s Reality replaced by the Adam Dreamer. The body seems to be more solid and more stable than the mind. Ordinarily, it changes much more slowly than the mind. And love becomes a dream, while fear remains the one reality that can be seen and justified and fully understood. It seems more consistent than Love to the mind that is insane from separation.
7 Just as forgiveness shines away all sin and the real world will occupy the place of what you made, so healing must replace the fantasies of sickness which you hold before the simple truth. When sickness has been seen to disappear in spite of all the laws that hold it cannot but be real, then questions have been answered. This is why I came to heal, not with herbs, or medicines, or potions, but with Love and with the understanding that sickness is not from God, but comes from the ego. And the laws can be no longer cherished nor obeyed. Their illegitimacy is displayed.
8 Healing is freedom. When it comes straight from God – no material intermediary – the mind is both amazed and so extremely grateful. Heaven’s door is finally seen open! For it demonstrates that dreams will not prevail against the truth. Reality seen clearly, and not what it was thought to be. Healing is shared. Your healing blesses so many Others. And by this attribute, it proves that laws unlike the ones which hold that sickness is inevitable are more potent than their sickly opposites. For these laws are Love. Healing is strength. Where before sickness seemed to be omnipotent, it now is but ephemeral. For by its gentle hand is weakness overcome. Its hand is both gentle and most holy. And minds which were walled off within a body free to join with other minds, to be forever strong.
The sense of separation being healed within the very mind where it occurred.
Its perfection just could not be better.
9 Healing, forgiveness, and the glad exchange of all the world of sorrow for a world where sadness cannot enter, – God’s Reality and not the ego’s – are the means by which the Holy Spirit urges you to follow Him, instead of ego. His gentle lessons teach how easily salvation can be yours, how little practice you need undertake to let His laws replace the ones you made to hold yourself a prisoner to death. For truly, they have no validity. They are illegal, for they’re not in line with God’s Laws of Love.
10 His life becomes your own as you extend the little help He asks in freeing you from everything that ever caused you pain. (Indeed! That’s freedom!) And 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. Can You imagine all the happiness? Perhaps you will not recognize them all, nor realize how great your offering to all the world when you let healing come to you. But you are never healed alone. For all minds are joined. And legions upon legions will receive the gift which you receive when you are healed. Such great fruit from a little willingness.
11 Those who are healed become the instruments of healing. Like sickness in the godless nightmare, by the rules of God, healing is quite catching! Nor does time elapse between the instant they are healed and all the grace of healing it is given them to give. What is opposed to God does not exist. And who accepts it not within his mind – choosing God instead – becomes a haven where the weary can remain to rest. For here is truth bestowed, and here are all illusions brought to truth.
And in the bringing, they are surely healed.
12 Would you not offer shelter to God’s Will? You but invite your Self to be at home, and can this invitation be refused? Ask the inevitable – healing of Your mind – to occur, and you will never fail. The other choice is but to ask what cannot be to be, – pure insanity – and this cannot succeed. Today we ask that only truth will occupy our minds, that thoughts of healing will this day go forth from what is healed to what must yet be healed, aware that they will both occur as one. Only perfection is God’s Holy Law. Accept it: this is true right now for You.
13 We will remember, as the hour strikes, our function is to let our minds be healed that we may carry healing to the world, exchanging curse for blessing, pain for joy, and separation for the peace of God. These are the gifts that God has given us to share willingly with all Our Brothers. Is not a minute of the hour worth the giving to receive a gift like this? Is not a little time a small expense to offer for the gift of everything? No expense Brother, but a privilege and, also, pleasure.
14 Yet must we be prepared for such a gift. And so we will begin the day with this and give ten minutes to these thoughts with which we will conclude today at night as well:
15 When I am healed, I am not healed alone. My healing is a gift for My Brothers.
And I would share my healing with the world, – oh so happily! –
That sickness may be banished from the mind
Of God’s one Son, Who is my only Self. Belovèd Son does include every One!
16 Let healing be through you this very day. There is no need to wait any longer! And as you rest in quiet, be prepared to give as you receive, to hold but what you give, and to receive the Word of God to take the place of all the foolish thoughts that ever were imagined. Now we come together to make well all that was sick and offer blessing where there was attack. What peace this does bring! Nor will we let this function be forgot as every hour of the day slips by, remembering our function with this thought:
17 When I am healed, I am not healed alone. Let Us not forget: All of Us are One.
And I would bless my brothers, for I would
Be healed with them as they are healed with me. So ends all dreams of separation, to be replaced by Love.
(Hear Me sing: “Great glory! Hallelujah!” praising God with song!)
