New cells every day

walk in sand healingI can relate somewhat to the Buddhist perspective that the mind is non-physical, formless, shapeless, colorless, genderless, and has the capacity to cognize or know. The basic nature of mind is pure, limitless and pervasive.

For this mind to also produce sickness doesn’t make sense to me though. Too contradictory for a mind to be both healthy and sick. So, I contemplate Mary Baker Eddy’s thought that distinguishes between human mind and divine Mind.

The human mind creates the physical situation. Or rather, the human mind holds within its mental chambers health or sickness and then feels them and calls the feelings a body.

The divine Mind is non-physical, formless, shapeless, colorless, genderless, all-knowing, and infinite. It knows health only. It never changes from knowing goodness and wellbeing. From this basis, healing of the physical can occur when the human mind yields to the divine Mind.

Science confirms the possibility of healing. Divine Science confirms the mental power to know the Mind of God, which includes health and holy purpose. Physical science confirms healing also but unless the mind is realized as a component, the healing is a mystery.

The New York Public Library’s Science Desk Reference notes, “There are between 50 and 75 trillion cells in the body…. Each type of cell has its own life span, and when a human dies it may take hours or day before all the cells in the body die.” Every seven years (or 10, depending on which story you hear) we become essentially new people, because in that time, every cell in your body has been replaced by a new cell.

Though the body changes every 7 years, we basically are the same people, showing that mind must be an element in our figuring. The revision of the body doesn’t change our meaning.

To relate to the meaning of divine Mind even establishes our ability to heal without a lingering mystery.

It was no mystery to me when I displaced fear with appreciation and my skin healed after being burnt.
