From Working with the Law (Raymond Holliwell) - The Law of Forgiveness
Bob Proctor said:
“Raymond Holliwell asked an important question: Who can tell what the Law is?' That is a really good question because, if a person is not reasonably well read, the Law wouldn't make any sense to them at all.
We're born into a physical body, we correspond with a material world, we're programmed to live through our physical senses, our senses are given to us so we can correspond and communicate in a material world. By our senses, I mean, you can see, hear, smell, taste, touch. Well that puts you in touch with your outside world. We're taught very little about our higher faculties
and virtually nothing about the Law.
Now, anyone who studies man, the human being as both a mental and a physical being can understand the Law. But if we're not studying and really understanding the true personality, like we're truly a triune being. We live simultaneously on three planes
of understanding. But if a person doesn't understand that, trying to digest this concept of the Law is not going to be an easy thing to do. It's going to seem like a theory of some religious creature that lived many moons ago. But if you study into it and you really take a look at the structure of the human personality, then it starts to make sense.
If we try to learn the Law by studying the physical actions or the result of sin alone, you're not going to learn it. It would lead nowhere. Keep in mind, when we talk about sin, it's a violation of the Law. When you violate the Law, you pay a price. See, the individual that does not grasp this will be running around in circles and it would be useless and futile for them to try and grasp it. Now, if we go deeper and study the causes which prompted this kind of behavior we're referring to as sin, you're going to get results. But we've got to analyze a case and search for some harbored, hidden, forgotten shock or condition that would have caused the illness.
So, let's suppose we're involved in the healing arts and all we understand is the physical. We don't understand anything beyond the physical. Well, you're going to be trying to correct something in the body by treating the body. Now I'm not saying you shouldn't do that, but I do say that you're treating a symptom, you're not treating the cause of the problem at all.
There was a doctor who I have gained just tremendous insight from, Dr. Thurman Fleet, who lived back around 1935. He was very involved in the healing arts and he said, “You know, if we're just treating the body, we're treating symptoms. If we're
going to treat the cause of the problems, we've got to go beyond that.” We have all kinds of psychology, psychiatry, behavioral scientists trying to figure out why people do things. And so we're looking at behavior all the time and trying to change the
behavior. We say the behavior causes the result.
Well the behavior does cause the result, but I think what we have to ask is what causes the behavior? We've got to go to the primary cause of the problem and that's where you get inside. And unless we get inside, we're going to be lost. A noted
physician, talking before a group of other medical people on the very subject of thought being the source of disease, was recorded as having said in his concluding remarks, “Abnormal tumors and cancers are due to a long period of suppressed grief and anxiety.” Another way of saying that such diseases are due to a lot of sinful thoughts getting bottled up and suppressed the mind.
Now, if a person happens to be ill, they're going to have a very difficult time accepting that. And if they don't accept it, they're going to have a difficult time changing it. We've got to understand it.
I remember reading in a book, I think it was on page 367 in a book Three Magic Words by U.S. Anderson, and he talked about cancer being caused by suppression. I was speaking at a meeting one time in Denver and there were doctors and some
medical people in the audience from the Presbyterian Hospital, which I believe is a cancer hospital in Denver. And they came back and they said, “You know what you're saying we believe is right. It is caused by suppression.” Another way of saying
this, that such diseases are due to a lot of wrong thinking, erratic thinking, even getting bottled up and suppressed in our mind. In this state, it's so destroying when we get the wrong thinking, unlawful thoughts running, it might be wise for us to probe into our own selves and note the effect our emotions have upon the physical organism. Then let us seek by every means at our command to overcome, abandon, and forsake every emotional tug that has a debilitating or disturbing effect.
Another leading psychiatrist has said that most of the cases of mental disorder of a functional type are due to a sense of guilt. I'll have to tell you here that I used to be bothered by guilt, just terrible feelings. And when I look back at my own life, I realized I was raised with guilt. But that wasn't unusual. Probably everyone in my particular era was raised with guilt. And it was really bothering me. So I went to see a psychiatrist and I met with him maybe four or five times, I was on my way down for
a visit because I had an appointment, and I realized I didn't have to go anymore. So I phoned him and I told him, I said, “I don't have to come anymore.” He said, “I didn't think you'd be back anymore.” But he said, “Come on down anyway, because
I want to talk to you” and he wanted to do some work with me. He was fascinated with the work I was doing.
All he did was ask questions, but he asked questions and he provoked me to think. He caused me to take a look at how absolutely ridiculous guilt is. I think Maxwell Maltz put it very well in his book, Psycho Cybernetics. He said that guilt is
never an appropriate emotion, which is a good way of looking at it.”
