"The body consciousness is indeed independent. To a large degree its own defense mechanisms protect it from the mindís negative beliefs - at least to a large extent. As I have mentioned before, almost all persons pass from a so-called disease state back into healthy states without ever being aware of the alterations. In those cases the body consciousness operates unimpeded by negative expectations or concepts."
Session 1/7, Page 15

"Many body events that you think of in your society as negative -- certain viruses, for example -- are instead meant as self-corrective devices, even as fever actually promotes health rather than impedes it."
Session 1/7, Page 16

"One of the greatest detriments to mental and physical well-being is the unfortunate belief that any unfavorable situation is bound to get worse instead of better."
Session 1/9, Page 20

"It may be far more pleasant to be good-humored all of the time - but in Ruburtís situation the fairly infrequent periods of blueness do indeed operate therapeutically, so that he is able to express those feelings through tears, and therefore relieve the body of expressing the same feelings through additional symptoms."
Session 1/xx, Page 29

"It is a good idea for now not to concentrate upon that leg, or what it must do eventually in order for walking to take place. It might help if now and then he imagines his walking taking place as easily and naturally as his thoughts come and go, and in ways as mysterious as the way his vision operates..."
Session 1/xx, Page 30

"The conscious mind can direct bodily activity, but the body consciousness alone can perform those activities that bring forth life and motion."
Session 1/xx, Page 37

"Once more, it is extremely important that Ruburt keep his mind on his goals, and not burden his conscious mind by trying to figure out circumstances and conditions that are best handled by the infinite intelligence that is within his own subconscious mind. The way and the means will be taken care of. They will indeed appear almost effortlessly - but he must let the burden of worry go."
Session 1/xx, Page 54

"These inborn leanings or attitudes can roughly be translated as follows: 1. I am an excellent creature, an excellent part of the universe in which I exist. 2. My existence enriches all other portions of life, even as my own being in enhanced by the rest of creation. 3. It is good, natural, and safe for me to grow and develop and use my abilities and by doing so I also enrich all other portions of life."
Session 1/27, Page 68

"Then: I am eternally couched and supported by the universe of which I am a part, and I exist whether or not that existence is physically expressed. Then: By nature I am a good deserving creature, and all of lifeís elements and parts are also of good intent. Then: All of my imperfections, and all of the imperfections of other creatures, are redeemed in the greater scheme of the universe in which I have my being."
Session 1/27, Page 68

"It may also strike you, my readers, as quite shocking when I tell you that there is no such thing, basically, as disease. There are instead only processes. What you think of disease is instead the result of an exaggeration or overextension of perfectly normal body processes. You are not attacked by viruses, for instance, for all kinds of viruses exist normally in the body. There are no KILLER viruses, then but viruses that go beyond their usual bounds."
