Short Lessons in Divine Science

by Nona Brooks

"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

Lesson 14 - What is Our Heredity?


These are answers to letters received by Miss Brooks, and are placed here because they deal with the subject.

[67] My dear Mary,

God is your Father and you inherit His own Substance. His perfect activity is working in you always. When you realize this you will experience health.

You say, “The Bible teaches the inheritance of disease.” Remember the threat in the second commandment is “to them that hate me.” You are too enlightened to hate. The answer to this commandment is found in the eighteenth chapter of Ezekiel. Listen to these words:

    “Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the Father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

    “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.

    “But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

    [68] “All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

    “Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord God: and not that he should return from his ways, and live.”

Again you say, “We see about us many cases of inherited disease.” True, but we must recognize the fact that what we see is the result of belief in human heredity.

When we refuse to believe anything but Divine Inheritance, we shall demonstrate perfect health.

Physical laws do not teach inheritance of disease. It has been demonstrated beyond a doubt that disease is never transmitted to offspring. The fact that parents believe in the possibility of such transmission conveys to the child a tendency in that direction. If the child can be taken into an entirely different environment and surrounded by an atmosphere of trust, the tendency is nullifed.

As to your being “a demonstration of it,” this demonstration is but evidence of race belief. When you realize that you are a manifestation of God, and that His Life, Love, Wisdom, and Power work in and through you, you will demonstrate and enjoy the blessing of perfect health.

May you soon come to this realization.

* * * * *

My dear Tom,

You say that God permits disease even if He does not send it.

[69] The truth is that God knows nothing about disease.

The Bible does not teach physical inheritances, although it seems to teach many things that could not be true of a God of Love.

On the other hand we find there statements that declare us to be sons of God; that enjoin us to be perfect even as our Father in heaven is perfect; that assert perfect freedom for us through knowledge of Truth.

The lesser teaching must give place to the greater. Let us read our Bibles, keeping ever in thought the omnipresence of a God of Love. Then shall we get the true understanding of this wonderful book.

We read, “If thine eye be single thy whole body shall be full of light.” When the eye is single to the light of God's Love, there can be no conception of germs to tear down and to devour as you believe them to be doing in your case.

You say that you overworked, thus violating a natural law, and that you are suffering for this now. There is a higher law than the so-called natural law. Your activity is from God and your strength in Him is limitless. “Ye shall mount up on wings, as eagles, ye shall run and not be weary.” --from Isaiah 40:31.

You receive Life directly from God. He thinks you, creates you, perfect like Himself. He is living you now and sees you only as He creates you, pure and perfect. You inherit from God only that which is good--His Wisdom, Love, Health, Power, and Joy. In this perception of Truth is your salvation from every ill.

[70] Will you not accept this truth about yourself? If you would only cease resisting!

    “Nearer is He than breathing,
    Closer than hands or feet.”

Talk to this loving Presence. Work your tiny bit of faith, and make it grow.

New Thought Day was declared by James Edgerton on August 23rd, 1915
During research while expanding the free New Thought Library, one of the ministers came across an interesting quote from early New Thought Alliance President James A. Edgerton: "'The truth, once announced, has the power not only to renew but to extend itself. New Thought is universal in its ideals and therefore should be universal in its appeal. Under the guidance of the spirit, it should grow in good works until it embraces many lands and eventually the whole world.' ~ New Thought Day, August 23rd , 1915."
