Dear ones, when you speak of healing, the miracle is the means, the atonement the principle, and healing the result. Those who speak of "the miracle of healing" are combining two orders of reality inappropriately. Healing itself is not a miracle. The atonement, or the final miracle, is a remedy. It is purely a means, while any type of healing is a result. We have constantly referred to miracles as the means of correcting level confusion. Illness, which is really "not right mindedness," is the result of level confusion in the sense that it always entails the misbelief that what is amiss in one level can adversely affect another.
