        Authentic Writings


"Other infections, infections from cuts, and bruises, and blisters, and boils; over these hundred years - Christian Science practitioners,
Unity practitioners, New Thought practitioners, Infinite Way practitioners - they have handled tens of thousands of cases of blisters, and burns, and cuts, and bruises, and proven that infection is not a power.  

"They haven't proven that God heals those things, because God is no respecter of persons. And why should He do it for the metaphysician and not for the non-metaphysician?  What God won't do for a non-metaphysician, He won't do for a metaphysician.  God is no respecter of persons.  

"In fact, God works through Law.  

"So it isn't God that heals these infections. It is, "Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free."  And the Truth is that these infections, and germs, and beliefs, and theories are not power.

"Now, God hasn't healed these cases for you.  God has never healed a case and never will.  Healing comes through the illumined consciousness of an individual.  And it must be illumined on this point of Omniscience and Omnipotence.  That is the only illumined consciousness there is.  Not one who sees visions, not one who has emotional experiences, this is not illumination.

"The illumined consciousness is the consciousness that knows the Truth.
"And, in The Infinite Way writings it says there is no truth about man to be known.  The Truth has to be known about God.  

"And if you know Omniscience and Omnipotence, you know enough Truth to change your life and the lives of all those who come to you, once you have worked with it long enough so that it isn't an intellectual knowledge, that it becomes an act of Awareness."
