Don’t be distracted away from the power of Truth

posted by Cheryl Petersen

When aiming for a healing goal, the key clicks when the power of Truth is recognized as the source of healing.

Too often, our human minds get tricked into thinking the source of healing is a thing, person, or time. Maybe because it’s easier for the human mind to believe in a thing, person, or time, rather than believe in and understand the power of Truth.

For example, it’s easier to believe a stove cooked our meal, a blow dryer dried our hair, and a battery charger charged our cell phone. But without electricity, nothing would happen.

True, our healing may entail a thing, person, or time. It may include rest, prayer, healthier food, exercise, or a better job, however healing comes from the power of Truth.

Letter-TTruth is a power. This truth with a big T, is spiritual truth.

Truth is the power behind spiritual truths such as: Spirit is our substance; Life is ongoing; divine Mind is intelligence; we reflect divine Mind.

The power of Truth, sometimes termed Christ in the Christian faith, is the umph behind healing. While we can appreciate things, persons, or time, we don’t want them to distract us away from acknowledging and living the power of Truth.
