The Practice - A Poem written in 2000

The Practice
Matthew 14:14
And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

He didn't sit in a room
waiting for the phone to ring.
He arose in thought
available, approachable,
ready to see prefection,
knowing there were no sick, or sad, or bad.

And great multitudes came,
from far and near,
seeking healing, wanting to hear
from one who saw them as already perfect
why this was so.

He was moved.
Conscious of their distress,
with a desire to aleviate it,
he moved among them
never repulsed or condemning,
always loving and compassionate.

Thus he healed
seeing them only
as they were,
and are,
and ever will be.
At one with their Father Mother, God.
Already perfect and whole.
Never separated from Love.

To practice is to go forth,
knowing only one Mind,
feeling the love of Love expressed,
healing the belief of sickness,
uplifting the deadened thought,
casting out error,
cleansing sin with Truth.

Divinity demonstrated.

Searching around in the garage for something else, I found the notebook I kept as I was preparing to go into the full time practice of Christian Science. I look forward to browsing through the articles and seeing where my thoughts were at that time.

Like this: Do not work against error but feel the Love that dissolves it.

Go in peace.
