Spiritual truth has irresistible authority

Effective Immunization

Vulnerability to disease is not a condition of true existence. Understanding this spiritual fact, each of us can take effective action to keep ourselves safe during an epidemic and to help stop the contagion.

You and I seem vulnerable sometimes only because we consent, consciously or unconsciously, to the general human conviction that materiality is the essence of life. But in reality—as God has created man and the universe—life is spiritual and is governed solely by laws of God, Truth. Therefore disease has no validity—no true source.

No disease? No. Man and the universe are God's self-expression. They reflect His goodness—Life's indestructibility, Soul's harmony and beauty, Mind's intelligent comprehension. This reflection, this self-expressive action of divine Mind, is the only communication that ever really occurs. God communicates all good to man, all joy, beauty, and health, thus causing man to manifest these qualities, to image forth the divine nature. Disease, decay, and fear are never communicated to or from man, because they don't exist in the allness of divine Principle, Life. They have neither starting point nor course of action. In short, all is God, good. There is nothing else.
