What Can a Pill Do?

I love breakthroughs. And one of these came about for me as a result of a physical challenge recently.
I am well aware of the bad rap Jesus gives to “magic.” Although magic pills and potions (medicine both conventional and holistic) are not harmful in themselves He is really cautioning us that when we depend on external phenomena for our salvation we unwittingly deny the Power of God within which heals all.
I have been watching myself like a hawk these past few years as my perception travels through the life-changing transition of the Six Stages of the Development of Trust. And I am still uncovering mistaken idols. I am acutely aware that the last of our idols we willingly give over to Spirit is the body along with all the “magic” we have invested with power (apart from God) to either harm or heal us.
Magic is neutral. It has zero power to harm or to heal. Z.E.R.O. power. Magic medicines are simply external phenomena that we made up and projected as imaginary remedies. We depend on them because we don’t yet consistently trust the Power of God within to heal all.
My recent physical issue woke me up at 4:30am. I groggily attempted the forgiveness process and Atonement but I just could not let go. There was an underlying belief that the pain was real. There is nothing like physical discomfort to make us believe that we’re one with the body – and not with God.
Anyway, I did ask Jesus to help me shift my perception. The next thing I saw was the temptation to take a magic pill. I watched the guilt about that and saw it was the ego judging me for that thought. So I let that one go. I sat there completely neutral and emptied my mind.
A pill? Hmmm…what does a pill (or any form of medicine) actually do? I was able to observe my belief in a magic pill from a totally different vantage point. The pill, having no ability to affect the body in any way, was entirely neutral. I witnessed this Truth from a rather open and spacious awareness, one without judgment. And it was in that moment of non-judgment that something dropped in.
The pill idea was a temporary substitute for trusting my Holy Self’s conviction that I was already healed. The pill was an “image” I projected externally and one that I imbued with power to change the body’s state. However it’s still merely a thought that I gave “form” to.
I saw that taking a pill which I had made up in my mind to remedy a body that I had also made up in my mind, was truly laughable. No judgment, but I could see clearly in that instant that there was a far more direct path to instantaneous healing. It’s called the miracle.
I could simply confess that I had made a mistake in my decision for pain. And I did not wish to attack myself any longer. In that Holy Instant of recognition my willingness to accept healing and God’s certainty that healing was already complete, were one and the same. There was no conflict any longer. Peace returned. The outcome was certain. Healing was done because I had consented to receiving it as God’s undivided Will. God’s Will and mine were now the same.
Jesus teaches that magic medicines are not really needed once we recognize the ego’s purpose for pain or illness. The mind made the body therefore it is always the mind (Holy Self) that heals the body and not some external phenomena that we made up. The ego mind uses sickness to prove the separation from Love (our Holy Self) is real. By making the body appear to be more powerful than the mind that made it, it attempts to prove that the body is more powerful than God.
“The acceptance of sickness as a decision of the mind, for a purpose for which it would use the body, is the basis of healing. And this is so for healing in all forms. A patient decides that this is so, and he recovers. If he decides against recovery, he will not be healed. Who is the physician? Only the mind of the patient himself. The outcome is what he decides that it is. Special agents [medicines] seem to be ministering to him, yet they but give form to his own choice. He chooses them in order to bring tangible form to his desires. And it is this they do, and nothing else. They are not actually needed at all. The patient could merely rise up without their aid and say, “I have no use for this.” There is no form of sickness that would not be cured at once.”
“What is the single requisite for this shift in perception? It is simply this; the recognition that sickness is of the mind, and has nothing to do with the body. What does this recognition “cost”? It costs the whole world you see, for the world will never again appear to rule the mind.” M-5:II.2,3:1-4

SHORT VERSION OF FORGIVENESS PRAYER
You can use this in any instant that you feel triggered emotionally or physically. When expressed with heartfelt sincerity, this is an exceptionally powerful prayer that initiates the miracle:
“Holy Spirit, please help me to forgive MYSELF for having unknowingly used___(person, pain, sickness, lack, anxiety, self-judgment, anger, etc)____to attack myself, and to separate from your Love as my Holy Self. Amen.”
