Expanding Your Consciousness

The moment you realize a particular Truth, it begins to work in your life. It begins to change, first your consciousness, and then your body or outer circumstances. You know, of course, that outer things always follow the consciousness. But any spiritual Truth that you begin to realize at least to some extent, will go far beyond this. It not only changes and heals the particular problem for which you were praying, but it will change every part of your nature for the better. Often you will suddenly come to a realization of something you never understood before. An entirely new meaning of a particular text will open up to you. You thought you understood but now you get something new. This is a great step forward, and it brings some kind of healing because you cannot get an increase in understanding without getting a healing. It may not necessarily be a physical healing. It may be a healing of disposition, or the overcoming of a fault, & so forth. Whatever the new thing is, you will never lose it again. Realization is the key to demonstration.   ~Emmet Fox
