364 — WATCH that you remember that sickness should always warn us of the danger of harboring a material sense of man. The lesson of Cain is to teach that the claim of murder is latent in mortal mind; therefore, the latter is fit only to be discarded and destroyed. The lesson from Jesus’ experience with the herd of swine is, that he exposed the selfdestruction that follows when mortal mind is recognized as entirely evil.
The deduction is that if disease indicates that error has been grafted into our conception of man, the cure must be to release the patient from a false sense of man. Thus we do not treat the patient; we treat or destroy the error, and leave the patient free.
