Do You WANT To Be Healed?
Almost every person has something in their life that is in need of healing, or change. The good news is that we have what it takes to make the changes! Read on to see how you can heal your life.

John 5
Now there is in Jerusalem by the Sheep Gate a pool, in Hebrew called Beth-za'tha, which has five porticoes. In these lay a multitude of invalids, blind, lame, paralyzed. One man was there, who had been ill for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him and knew that he had been lying there a long time, he said to him, "Do you want to be healed?" The sick man answered him, "Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is troubled, and while I am going another steps down before me." Jesus said to him, "Rise, take up your pallet, and walk."

Words of Wisdom
God is free to do as He wills, and He has implanted that same freedom in man. When we understand this ego~forming capacity of man and even of nature, we have the key that unlocks the many mysteries and contradictions that appear in every walk of life

Blessings to You!

Wherever in our lives we feel the need for change; for healing, the first thing we must do is find the "root cause." The root cause for our dis-ease or illnesses is the same root cause of our health and well being. Life, as we say in Unity, is Consciousness. Through the Spiritual Law, or Principle of Mind Action, we create our life experience. Where the mind goes, energy flows, and manifestation follows.
The first thing therefore we must heal can be found in consciousness; in the realm of thought and feelings. I call this healing "The Human Condition." I define the "Human Condition" as identifying ourselves more with our bodies, circumstances and the world we live in, which is "effect,"  than the Truth of our Being, which is as a Child of God, a Spiritual Being having a Human Experience, setting forth "cause." The longer and deeper we cling to "effects," the longer the journey to healing will be.  We are capable of so much more than we currently express. 
The key word, found in the above Bible passage, is "want." Jesus asked the man "Do you WANT to be healed." If someone asked that question of us..."Do you want your body, relationship, finances, career, etc. healed?"... what would our answer be? The first thought that comes to my mind is, "No...duh...OF COURSE I want to be healed. The disconnect here, is that while we may SAY we want to be healed, all to often we do not DO that which brings the healing we say we want. 

The man at the pool was waiting for 38 years for someone to help him get into the healing waters. Likewise, all too often we wait for someone else to do the work for us. We want someone to come into our lives to fill our needs for love, affection and affirmation of our worth; we want that person to change into the person that we want them to be; we want the Lottery Commission to provide the financial security we say we want; we want a larger paycheck with less work; we want a nice environment, and more "stuff" than our homes can hold.

My question is, do we really WANT it, or would we LIKE to have it? All too many of the circumstances and problems in our lives, including health, wealth and happiness can be "healed;" fixed, made whole. The only problem is that we are waiting for God, or another human being, or luck to change them. We just don't "pick up our bed and walk." Our greatest resource for the good we claim we want is our God-given abilities, skills, talents and spiritual faculties such as faith, strength, imagination, etc.

I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not in any way negating physicians. They, too, provide a great resource as they align their minds and hearts with Divine Mind, and let their hands do God's work...but even physicians must do what they can, and then they must let nature...God...take over. We were created to be whole and well. We were created to create, and prosper and live fully.
And so I ask you...Would you LIKE to be healed, or do you WANT to be healed? 
Have a blessed day. RevAli
