Resist Not Evil

Recently I watched the documentary, "The Phenomenon Bruno Groening."  Throughout his life, Bruno Groening served mankind as a faith healer.  With regard to healing the sick Bruno has been quoted as saying, "There is no such thing as incurable - God is the greatest physician!"  In spite of mounting opposition from the medical profession, Bruno stayed true to his life's purpose. Whenever anyone with an illness came to him seeking help he healed them. 

Bruno stated also that the way to healing is through love, peace and joy.  In other words look to the good in life and in every situation.  Perhaps that is what is meant by "Resist not evil."  When we perceive a situation to be evil, or not good we are essentially saying that it has power.  Whatever we give our attention to generates power. 

According to Neale Donald Walsch in Conversations with God, that which you resist persists.  If you want to be healed of an illness begin by releasing yourself from the illness as a power.

With so much uncertainty and fear around money and the economy, there is no better time to put our faith into practice.  I propose that we try for one month to abstain from fearful thinking about our economy.  Instead of worrying about what might or might not happen, let's focus our energy on all the good around us. I'm not suggesting that we stick our heads in the sand and try to ignore what's happening.  What I am suggesting is that it does not serve us to walk around talking gloom and doom.  Let's use our words, thoughts and actions to elevate our moods and the moods of those around us. 

Tell your loved ones what you love most about them.  Smile at strangers on the street.  Hold a conversation with your neighbor that is light and uplifting.  Show kindness and generosity to everyone you meet.  Make a decision to be a healer of this world.  Start right where you are.  Begin with yourself.  Look in the mirror and say kind and loving words to yourself first thing in the morning.  Carry that energy with you throughout the day and share it with everyone you meet. 

In Philippians 4:8 Jesus encouraged us with these words: "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

God sent Jesus the Christ to teach us how to live.  The light of the Christ consciousness lives on in each one of us.  But, like any power source, it only works when you turn it on.
