“Facing the Fear of Healing” will be the topic for A Course in Miracles class on Thursday, June 13, 2013, 7 pm. We will be looking at some of the unconscious resistance to healing that we employ to sabotage our own health – and the reasons for that resistance.
T-8.IX.8. “Sickness is not of the body, but of the mind. All forms of sickness are signs that the mind is split, and does not accept a unified purpose”
“Sickness is but another name for sin.
Healing is but another name for God.
The miracle is thus a call to Him.”
M-5.II.2. “The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing. And this is so for healing in all forms. A patient decides that this is so, and he recovers. If he decides against recovery, he will not be healed. Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient himself. The outcome is what he decides that it is. Special agents seem to be ministering to him, yet they but give form to his own choice. He chooses them in order to bring tangible form to his desires. And it is this they do, and nothing else. They are not actually needed at all.”
