“The human will which maketh and worketh a lie, hiding the divine Principle of harmony, is destructive to health, and is the cause of disease rather than its cure.” (Science and Health, page 445)
Human will is not where your strength lies. Willful pushing for the win is not a useful method for healing. This forced intention tends to causes unease, discomfort, lack of stability, poise, and peace. Human will burdens and unsettles us, so it certainly can’t be the catalyst for harmony. Only the divine Principle of harmony itself can promote and preserve its own qualities.
Yield that firm grip on the self. Stop setting yourself up as creator, savior, or destroyer. The will that relies on a human sense of separateness, mortal courage, or pride can’t lead us to that unity of Life that is health, joy, satisfaction, and safety. It is only by realizing that we are one with God and His will, His perfect control–all that is right, active, and ours naturally—that we can really feel the Truth of that in our own health and well-being.
The divine Principle of harmony is the active fact at all times and it is right where we are, right now. The false and alluring belief in mortal minds, in personalities separate from the One Ego, would hide this fact of our own being by giving us a wrong perspective. The all-knowing Mind is the only Mind that sees clearly. When we presume a separate mind it only brings a lack of clarity–a mist that hides the reality of heaven, our heaven, right here and now. God’s view is gorgeous and right. The divine will is entirely good and it is actively leading you home. Let it. Release to that natural salvation, the hand of infinite wisdom. Let go and let your life reveal the tender peace of His loving, perfect will.
