Part Twenty-Two - Page 5

  1. This influence or control over the body by mind is coming to be more and more generally understood, and many physicians are now giving the matter their earnest attention. Dr. Albert T. Shofield, who has written several important books on the subject, says, The subject of mental therapeutics is still ignored in medical works generally. In our physiologies no references is made to the central controlling power that rules the body for its good, and the power of the mind over the body is seldom spoken of.
  2. No doubt many physicians treat nervous conditions of functional origin wisely and well, but what we contend is that the knowledge they display was taught at no school, was learned from no book, but it is intuitive and empirical.
  3. This is not as it should be. The power of mental therapeutics should be the subject of careful, special and scientific teaching in every medical school.
  4. There can be no doubt that some patients are aware how much they can do for themselves. What the patient can do for themselves, the forces they can set in motion are becoming known. We are inclined to believe that they are far greater than most imagine, and will undoubtedly be used more and more. Mental therapeutics may be directed by the patient themselves to calming the mind in excitement, by arousing feelings of joy, hope, faith, and love; by suggesting motives for exertion, by regular mental work, by diverting the thoughts.
  5. For your exercise this week concentrate on the beautiful lines inspired by Tennyson, Speak to the Universal, thou, for the Universal hears, and spirit with spirit can meet, Closer is the Universal than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet. Then try to realize that when you do Speak to the Universal you are in touch with Omnipotence.
  6. This realization and recognition of this Omnipresent power will quickly bring any and every form of health, joy, harmony and perfection.
