LESSON: – “Maybe so, maybe not.” - (What are the deeper Truths about NEGATIVES in our Lives?) LESSON BY: Rev Ian Taylor
SOM TEXT There are no mistakes, none has ever been made & none will ever be made (P519)
SOM TEXT We shall have to learn that evil is neither person, place nor thing of itself, but is an experience which we are allowed to have -- because of our divine individuality -- until through negative experiences we learn to use the Law affirmatively, to cooperate with It, and thus to enjoy Its full benefits, for the true Law is a Law of Liberty and not of bondage. (p. 110.1)
The Power of An Idea (1965): The very power by which you bring negative conditions into your experience is the very power by which you also can bring good conditions. Ignorance of the Law of Mind excuses no one from Its effect, be it what you call good or evil. (p. 91,2)
Words That Heal Today (1949): He (Jesus) does not imply that non-resistance means acquiescence, that it means we accept negative conditions or circumstances as being right. Non-resistance means non-combativeness. Instead of contending against evil we should think good; instead of fighting the devil we should worship God; instead of being overcome by grief we should enter the joy of living. (p. 34.2)
PRACTITIONER YEAR TWO, TERM TWO When there is a negative appearance, the experience is simply one to draw our attention to an underlying belief that opposes the Truth – by recognizing it as such, and taking action to determine the truth in the situation, we find we have been given a gift of growth and wisdom The illness that results is a message to heal much more than the body. Suppressed emotions, positive or negative, create illness, which is a gift, if we understand the illness as a message that our thinking is out of harmony with God, rather Than a thing in and of itself.
Many physical illnesses have their beginnings in emotional burdens such as guilt, blame, unforgiveness, shame, hatred, resentment, loss, grief, fear, anger and more.
