“The genius of man is a continuation of the power that made him and has not done making him.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Healing is not creating a perfect idea or a perfect body; it is revealing an idea which is already perfect. Healing is not a process, it is a revelation, through the thought of the practitioner to the thought of the patient. There may be a process in healing, but not a process of healing. The process in healing is the mental work and the time it takes the practitioner to convince himself of the perfectness of his patient; and the length of time it takes the patient to realize this perfectness."
Ernest S. Holmes - The Science of Mind Textbook - Page 179: Para 4 - 180: Para 1
In choosing the quote from our Beloved Dr. Holmes for today's lesson on “Revelation”, I realized that many of us tend to put the “cart before the horse”.
Please re-read the first two sentences which inspire my writing today, and see if you can see The Revelation, so-called, that Dr. Holmes is pointing out. The subtleties are present but often overlooked. Are we starting our treatment with the “problem” to be healed, rather than the perfection which often is hidden from our Conscious Mind? We are working with Sub-Conscious Mind which is not so obvious. Remember: Perfection cannot reveal itself if we are concentrating on appearance or a so-called defect that exists in the mind of the patient or the practitioner.
This may not seem like a Revelation to many of you and it may seem redundant.. but it is so important that it is always worth repeating. In my professional Ministerial / Practitioner practice, I have observed that sometimes we fall into this entrapment of the “obvious” - especially if it is in the form of the “small self” story, malady, or circumstance that is presented to us by the patient. It is our important work to constantly reveal what we Know - which is not as obvious - but inevitably present in all matters: The Spiritual Perfection that is the Truth of You, your client, and indeed all of us. And when that Truth is revealed - ALL can be healed.
Should you find yourself falling into this pattern remember the word Revelation in this context.
So, let’s “move the horse in front of the cart” and let the healing begin!
