“The Master taught them much about the whole man—the union of body, mind, and spirit to form the individual man or woman. [He] told his associates about the three forms of affliction they would meet […] 1. Diseases of the flesh[...] 2. Troubled minds […] 3. The possession of evil spirits. (UB, 141:4.4-7)
Thought Adjuster: “The Ironman Triathlon consists of three long-distance races (a swim, a bicycle ride, and a marathon run). It is one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. Those who complete it demonstrate a high level of physical fitness, coupled with emotional fortitude, and mental aptitudes. It earns them the honorary title of iron men or women.
“Jesus was an ironman by excellence. The harmonious collaboration between his spirit, mind, and body led him to accomplish extraordinary works. Synergy is produced by the coordinated or correlated action of two or more structures, agents, or physiologic processes. Their combined effort is greater than the sum of each acting separately. Jesus’ parable of the faith-driven mustard seed is another depiction of the unexpected windfall one experiences when joining forces with Spirit.
“Strive to operate as whole individuals. Prioritize the spiritual aspect of your being that can intuit God’s will. When your body implements these divine impulses, you perform great works — as Jesus did. The positive energies that flood your entire organism make you feel blissfully complete.”
