FROM THE CHRISTIAN SCRIPTURES
He was once ina certain town where there happened to be a man covered with leprosy; seeing Jesus, he bowed to the ground and begged his help. "Sir, he said, "if only you will, you can cleanse me." Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, "Indeed I will; be clean again." The leprosy left him immediately. Jesus then ordered him not to tell anybody. "But go," he said, "show yourself to the priest, and make the offering laid down by Moses for your cleansing; that will certify the cure." But the talk about him spread all the more; great crowds gathered to hear him and to be cured of their ailments. And from time to time he would withdraw to lonely places for prayer.
One day he was teaching, and Pharisees and teachers of the law were sitting round. People had come from every village of Galilee and from Judea and Jerusalem, and the power of the Lord was with him to heal the sick. Some men appeared carrying a paralysed man on a bed. They tied to bring him in and set him down in front of Jesus, but finding no way to do so because of the crowd, they went up to the roof and let him down through the tiling, bed and all, into the middle of the company in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he said, "Man your sins are forgiven you."

The secret of healing is to rise
by the power of belief above the limitations of this world of variety,
that one may touch by the power of intelligence, the oneness of the whole
Being. It is there that one becomes charged with the almighty power,
and it is by the power of that attainment that one is able to help oneself
and others in their pain and suffering.
The soul is happy by nature; the soul is happiness itself. It becomes unhappy when something is the matter with its vehicle, its instrument, its tool through which it experiences life. Care of the body, therefore, is the first and the most important principle of religion.
