Spiritual Mind Treatment-Prayer
Ernest Holmes, Our Founder
Let us suppose that John is sick and Mary is the practitioner. He comes to her, saying: “I am sick” She understands the power of Mind; he does not understand it. She does not try to hold a thought over him or for him, nor suggest one to him. She speaks his name and makes his declarations about this name. She contradicts what appears to be wrong and declares the Truth about him. What happens? Her word , operative through Universal Mind, sets a law in motion, on the subjective side of life, which objectifies through his body as healing.
John thinks a miracle has been performed. No miracle has been enacted. Mary used a law which all people may use if they will. If John had been perfectly will, and his need had been for a position, the treatment would be of like nature; Mary would have declared into Mind what should be done for John. There is only One Law; John could set It in operation for himself if he understood Its nature; sooner or later he must com to understand and make conscious use of this Law.
And So It Is.
