LECTURE 1 THIS Course of Healing we will divide into three parts: Spiritual, Mental and Physical; Spiritual Laws, Mental Laws and Natural Laws. There is much to understand and learn in the art of healing, but when you acquire the knowledge which gives you the foundation and confidence required in healing, you will soon be able to help yourself and others. With this knowledge there is no reason why you should not be able to heal and, often, instantaneously. The main thing in healing is to know the Truth. The Divine Spirit in man is inexhaustible and infallible, and is perfect. It is expressing itself continuously; it does not have to be urged. We have only to believe in it and it comes forth of its own accord. The majority of people malpractice themselves and others; what I mean by malpracticing is that when they see any person suffering from any particular disease, they think or say, “How terrible! You must be suffering so badly,” and they see the trouble as incurable, often condemning the sufferer to death by thinking that person is going to die. It is these thoughts and sayings I call malpracticing. Whenever you see the Truth, the Reality in the individual, you bring the Spiritual Power into operation, knowing the fact that all are Divine in nature. You must realise and recognise the great Cosmic Power, and with the awareness of being one with the Cosmic Power you will then see no flaw in its creation. Its creation is perfect; flaws are brought about by the ignorance of the mortal or personal mind which has nothing to do with the creation of the body. When you recognise this Truth you will not malpractice on yourself or others. To see the Divine Principle in action is to a great extent the fundamental principle underlying all healing, no matter what method is used.
