The curse causeless shall not come

How wonderful that Mrs. Eddy gives us this topic, God the only cause and creator, to study in depth twice a year. This particular lesson includes a passage I often found puzzling. It is from Proverbs. As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. This morning I decided to look that up in some different translations of the Bible. Here is what I found.
The curse causeless does not alight.
An undeserved curse will not land on its intended victim.
You have little to fear from an undeserved curse.

God is Love and Love would never curse its beloved child. Divine Love is constantly blessing us. We learn in Genesis One that God fills all space with His own creations. His work is complete and each of us appear to Him as very good. He is pleased with us. He wouldn't change a thing. We already have every thing we will ever need to be happy and healthy. We can rejoice and be grateful.

Are you feeling like you are cursed with some problem? Something that occurred in your past, that lingers in the present and threatens your future? Do you think you have caused this, or worse, do you think God is punishing you? This 'curse', no matter what form it might try to take, is causeless. Your innocence is intact, your purity unstained. Whatever it is trying to make you believe is real has no basis in God's kingdom. If it is not real to God, how can it be real to you?

Know that it is not real, it is causeless, without authority to hurt you in any way. It cannot attach itself to your thought or your body. Just know it is without cause and therefore must be deprived of any effect. In truth, it was never there at all and so when you realize that, it disappears and can leave no scars, physical or emotional or financial or any other way.

This 'curse' does not alight or land on you. Let it just slide off. Without a mark.
This undeserved 'curse' will on not touch its intended victim. Like the so-called 'curse' on woman, it cannot cause you monthly cramps or discomfort. Like the so-called 'curse' of heredity, it cannot make you lose your hair or make you susceptible to being over weight or to some inherited disease.
You have nothing to fear from an undeserved curse.

Rejoice! And go about your day with gratitude! No curse will ever land on you, touch you, or bring you down. It cannot.
