The fifth idea for wellness comes from a book that I love, A Course of Miracles, by The Foundation of Inner Peace and in this wonderful text they have the saying, “Don’t give God’s power away.” What is meant by that is, if you don’t give anything any power, it can’t cause any harm.
With the patients that I work with, I usually break it down this way. “Is there but only one power?” “Yes.” “And, is that God’s power?” “Yes.” Then, depending on their beliefs I ask; “Is that power good?” They say, “Yes.” “Is that power love?” Well, if there’s only one power, then why do you give God’s power away? And, if there’s only one power, and that power is good, why do you take that power and give it to something else?”
I see it happening all the time. Right now, one of the biggest segments with the male patients that I work with is that they have a problem with the government. They have problems with Congress. They have a problem with whoever’s in office. They have given politicians power. The power of God. They’ve taken it from God and given it to something or someone else.
What about cancer? We give it power. The power is based on fear. Somebody tricked you into giving God’s power to “it”. Do not give it any of God’s Power. It is not your job to give God’s Power to anything. The power of anything other than good, other than love, is an illusion. It is something that you have allowed yourself to believe in order to trick you into giving it power, because there’s only one power and it’s not darkness. Everything ends up going to the light. Everything at some point ends up going back to God.
So, where does darkness come from? We gave it God’s power. We did it out of fear. It is really easy to destroy darkness. Bring forth light and you take away darkness’s power. It has no power unless you give it power. Light casts out darkness. Darkness cannot exist where there’s light. Everything…and I mean it when I say it…everything returns to the light.
