Restoring the Lost Sense of Health

The English poet Robert Bridges once wrote, "Sickening thought itself engendereth corporal pain."  The Testament of Beauty ; How futile to treat bodily pain or apply material remedies to discordant matter, when the procurator and maintainer of the malady is fearful, willful, sinful, or unenlightened thinking!

If a room becomes chilly or overwarm, one does not tamper with the thermometer to adjust the situation, for the thermometer is an indicator, not a controller, of temperature. And the same might be said of the human body. No abnormal physical condition can appear upon the body unless it has first been formed in thought, whether consciously or unconsciously. Through suggestion and acceptance physical experiences are mental experiences before they are physical. What is needed, then, is spiritually restored or reformed thought, which in turn outlines itself upon the body in the normalcy of health.
