Treatment ideas for November 6, 2019

By Julio C. Rivas, CS

...we can catch clear glimpses of God only as the mists disperse, or as they melt into such thinness that we perceive the divine image in some word or deed which indicates the true idea, — the supremacy and reality of good, the nothingness and unreality of evil. — Mary Baker Eddy

I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. — KJV,  Isa. 41:13

Seeing/Healing: Wonderful and omnipotent Goodness-Love, Your effulgence is erasing from my experience evil’s malignant pretensions. You, the All-Perfection, is enfolding us, and this gives me authority to manifest Your glory.

A Prayer For This Week (October 28 - November 3, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Father-Mother God, Your love and care are everlasting.
Can I be impatient, jealous, suspicious, fearful, hateful or dishonest? Absolutely not!
 I know You are Love and claim my true selfhood as Your image and likeness.
I am Your beloved child and feel loved, wanted and cherished.
Can I be hypnotized by the idols of materialism? Never!
Through You, divine Spirit, I discern Your spiritual reality.
Can I be overcome with doubt and feel separated from You, God?
No way! I am confident in Your Truth and am at one with You, divine Presence.
Can I be tempted by the sins of criticism, resentment, contempt, anger, or revenge?
Certainly not!  I am God-made. My nature is good and sin-free. My innocence is safe.
Can my life be contaminated by suffering, sickness or other forms of mortal limitation?
Of course not! Divine Life, You are my life and this truth brings me freedom.
Can I be blanketed with sadness, depression or shame?
By no means! Through You, God, my joy, confidence and self-worth are intact.
Divine Spirit, I acknowledge Your omnipresence and omnipotence and I am so grateful.
And so it is, Amen.

Man is the functioning of God

By Anthony J. Whitehouse, CS

So the “being” of God is found in the workings of man. You and I operate as a function of God being God.

Once you “have” that definition how can MAN then malfunction?

We operate and exist as God manifesting himself. That manifestation must necessarily be perfect and harmonious.
8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us.
9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
(John 14:8, 9)
Jesus was God functioning. When you understand that you MUST be the functioning of God, the malfunctioning will stop.

And he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the Lord, and said, O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child’s soul come into him again. 22 And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. KJ, I King 17: 21-22

Understanding/Healing: Life-Good is crowning us with immortality, love and power. We are superb Life-beings. And our Life-spirit is eradicating death, loss, failure, suicide, depression and trauma.

A Prayer For This Week (October 21 - 27, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Thank You God, for my growing understanding of Your allness and of Life eternal.
Divine Love, You as Mother dispel my fear and lead me away from sin.
Divine Truth, You release my thought from the belief of life as existing in matter.
The tenacity of error does not hold me in bondage to the belief in death.
The bounds of a mortal life span do not define or limit my life.
I am free from the sepulcher of materiality - not entombed in its seeming limitations.
Divine Presence, I am spiritually awakened.
I know that death is no factor or steppingstone in this growth spiritward.
I embody qualities of loving-kindness, purity, integrity, sincerity, fearlessness,
joy, and intelligence.
I know these spiritual attributes cannot be restricted to human personality,
and in demonstrating that which is real, I put on immortality.
With the help of Your angel messengers, the stone of false mortal sense is rolled away
and am roused to the true and imperishable identity as Your divine, spiritual reflection.
Glory be to You, Father God. Your power and goodness are manifested.
And so it is, Amen.

A Prayer For This Week (October 14 - 20, 2019)

By Prayerful Living


Thank you, God. Through Your incalculable love, illustrated by Christ Jesus,
 I celebrate my sense of at-one-ness with You.
I refuse to be identified with all that is unlike You, ever-present Spirit.
I have been touched by the redeeming action of Your dear Christ,
the true idea voicing good, and recognize my relationship to You, divine Love.
Guided by immutable Truth, I stand up to the suggestions of error.
I find release from the bondage of disease and sin and am healed.
Father-Mother God, my relationship to You is restored in my heart.
I reside in Your divine Presence.
I emulate Jesus’ example to love all as You and he have loved us.
“Love one another” is my anthem. I am blessed and strive to bless others.
And so it is, Amen.

Treatment ideas for October 12, 2019

By Julio C. Rivas, CS

So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. ... 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! -- KJ, II Cor. 5: 16, 17

"As a drop of water is one with the ocean ... even so God and man, Father and son, are one in being." -- Eddy

Treatment/Healing: Love-Life's hegemony declares that we are sown into its fabric of eternal perfection. This Christly cognition is washing away a finite, sin-sickness-ladened vew of existence. Our eternal excellence (although it seems new and distant to human belief) is overlording our quotidian experience.
