Readers, beware: contagious health is breaking out! This concept may seem ridiculous, or at least revolutionary, but it’s really quite natural. According to writer Bob Cummings, we can turn the assumption of contagious diseases right on its head as we give this issue serious thought from a spiritual perspective. He writes:
“Health reformer Mary Baker Eddy said: ‘People believe in infectious and contagious diseases, and that any one is liable to have them under certain predisposing or exciting causes. This mental state prepares one to have any disease whenever there appear the circumstances which he believes produce it. If he believed as sincerely that health is catching when exposed to contact with healthy people, he would catch their state of feeling quite as surely and with better effect than he does the sick man’s.’
“All of this makes me think of an example from the Bible in which Jesus touched a leper. Instead of Jesus catching leprosy, the leper was cured (KJV Matthew 8:2-3).
“Could that touch have been an assertion of a different view of what health is and where it comes from — an assertion that the source of health is superior to the source of disease?”
