Thru, Not In

Mind, which is who and what I am as a spiritual being, transcends the body. Mind works through the body but not in it. Mind cannot be made physical, but it can be made manifest through the physical. So the New Testament idea that ‘the word (or thought) was made flesh’ is a mistake.


If the mind believes the body is its goal, it will distort its perception of the body, block its own extension beyond it to communicate with itself in other seemingly separated bodies, which is its function and natural tendency, and induce illness by fostering separation.


The purpose of learning is to lead beyond the body to the re-establishment of the power of the mind in and thru it. This can be accomplished only if the mind extends to other minds and does not arrest itself in its extension. Allowing the mind to use the body only for its extension through communication, becomes a beautiful lesson in communion, which has value until communion is. This is spirit’s way of making unlimited what I have made limited.


In the body of another, I can see the use to which I have put mine. Seeing others as only bodies, belittles them and me. Spirit interprets the body only as a means of communication, a link between Itself, Its children and Its children with one another, enabling each seemingly separate part of It to join with every other seemingly separated part of it to make contributions to a world that works for everyone and everything in it.
