“Mortals develop their own bodies or make them sick, according as they influence them through mortal mind. To know whether this development is produced consciously or unconsciously, is of less importance than a knowledge of the fact.” (Science and Health, page 199)
Mortal mind claims a material body and gives it characteristics, conditions, and abilities. Matter is a creation of mortal mind, and so that physical sense we may accept for ourselves is just a figment of that false mind’s imagination. When we accept mortal thoughts and ourselves as mortals, we may seem to experience the results of those fears and limits.
But we can know ourselves truly and so express those bodies that belong wholly to the consciousness of Mind, that which does not merely imagine, but which knows and expresses truly. In this acceptance of our immortal Mind as knowing every right thing concerning us, we are able to “develop” our bodies in a way that evidences the truth about us, that spiritual perfection that is here to be realized.
Let’s not get hung up on whether or not we are subconsciously or consciously accepting a lie about our identity. It only leads to an unnecessary preoccupation with mortal mind, wherein there is no healing element at all. Be aware only that the mortal mind would seek to present to us something that is entirely false, based on a premise that begins with a lie and must end with an untruth. Let’s give up this belief in a mortal mind and a mortal body altogether, and let ourselves be what our Mind made us to be, and keeps us to be—perfect, harmonious, beautiful, and at peace.
