Trust is based upon something – the evidence of things not seen. To have faith, we must have evidence. Trust is not blind. We can know the invisible by seeing the visible. We can see the trees bend and know there is wind. We can see the moon reflect light and know the sun is
shinning. We can see man, and know there is something beyond. The supernatural is the natural not yet understood. Who has seen the wind? It is only with the heart that one can see correctly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. The thing that is incredible is life itself …. Why should we be here in this sun-illuminated universe? Why should there be green earth under our feet? Seeing, hearing, feeling, are miracles, and each part and tag of me is a miracle. The miracles of nature do not seem miracles because they are so common. If no one had ever seen a flower, even a dandelion would be the most startling event in the world. I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence ….
Everything that surrounds us – everything that exists – proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision. I think therefore I am. (I have a soul).
Fear is conquered by action. When we challenge our fears, we defeat them. When we grapple with our difficulties, they lose their hold upon us. When we dare to face the things which scare us, we open the door to freedom. Do not give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it …. that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear. To fight fear, act. To increase fear – wait, put off, postpone, procrastinate. Whenever we’re afraid, its because we don’t know enough. If we understood enough, we would never be afraid. You are only afraid if you are not in harmony with
yourself. People are afraid because they have never owned up to themselves. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.
