“Benefits” of Sickness?!

Who seeks for substitutes, when he perceives HE HAS LOST NOTHING? Who would WANT to have the “benefits” of sickness, when he has received the simple happiness of health? What God has given cannot BE a loss, and what is not of Him has NO effects. What, then, would you perceive within the gap? The seeds of sickness come from the belief that there is JOY in separation, and its giving up WOULD BE A SACRIFICE. But miracles are the result, when you do not insist on seeing in the gap what is not there. Your willingness to LET illusions go is all the Healer of God’s Son requires. He will place the miracle of healing where the seeds of sickness were. And there will be NO loss, but ONLY gain. 
[Urtext chapter 28, excerpt]

Today we join in the Undoing of Fear class with the title: The Greater Joining. In this amazing chapter we are instructed how to stay out of separation, not meeting anyone in the “gap” that is perceived when you join in sickness and misery with your brother. The section ends with this prayer:

I thank you, Father, knowing you will come to close each little gap that lies between the broken pieces of Your holy Son. Your Holiness, complete and perfect, lies in every one of them. And they ARE joined, because what is in one IS in them all. How holy is the smallest grain of sand, when it is recognized as being part of the completed picture of God’s Son. The forms the broken pieces seem to take mean nothing. For the Whole is in each one. And every aspect of the Son of God is just the same as every other part. Join not your brother’s dream, but join with HIM, and where you join His Son, the Father IS.
