“Asked to explain these accomplishments the father declares, ‘I simply learned to believe. I kept on believing at all times even when everything seemed most difficult.’ And he added, ‘I also got busy and worked instead of wasting time and energy in complaining and feeling sorry for myself.” Stay Alive All Your Life, by Norman Vincent Peale
Believing is VERY important. Our certainty at the beginning of a doubtful undertaking is the only thing—the ONLY thing—that guarantees that we will succeed.
This means that when something is really wrong for us, we know it—and we don’t “believe.” This is self-protection. And right and good.
Go inside and ask if this tempting thing is really good for us. We can fool ourselves, but not for long—not when we really consult an inner knowing that we all have. This inner knowing is the Holy Spirit speaking. Or, if we are more secular, we can call this inner knowing our intuition.
We know. When we fully believe, no doubt intervenes. And the thing we desire manifests.
