The Christ Treatment & Thy Son Liveth
John Hargreaves reads these chapters from The Christian Science Revolution in Thought which are presented on one CD or as an audio download in MP3 format.
The Christ Treatment
All metaphysical treatment starts and stays with the fact that the infinite is one, not two. The parable of the Prodigal illustrates the basic mistake of believing in two sons, two kinds of man, two sorts of anything. It is this divided sense of life that takes man into a far country. The Father, or divine Principle, of man knows no duality, since man consists of God’s thoughts, and thoughts cannot escape or deviate from the Mind that thinks them. True “treatment”, therefore, does not work about problems but sees the spiritual fact in their place. Only thus do problems fade out.
Thy Son Liveth
Taking the story of the nobleman whose son was healed by Jesus, we see that the human longing to bring Truth down to a material condition, in order to do something to it, has to yield to the understanding that the only Son, the only consciousness, the only state of being, lives as total wholeness, completeness, and harmony now. It is the affirmation of the spiritual fact that heals and not the attempt to do something about a material condition. We do not ask, What can I do? but ” What are the facts?”
