Highways of the Mind {Stop Three}


Faith Can Move Mountains

Our mountains are our circumstances. We can change any circumstance in our lives. All we have to do is have enough faith to believe when we pray; God can move those mountains away.

We live in a world where the majority of the people don’t except things by faith alone. You might say we are a society of “I’ll believe it when I see it” kind of people. The “show me and I’ll believe” attitude is for all intents and purposes a misconception because no creation is ever observed before it’s beginning. However this attitude is defended by many as being realistic. Which I believe is the exact opposite of faith. Faith sees the possibility of all things; the world we live in depends on positive belief, hope, and faith to continue. Negativity breeds destruction. If we depended on cynicism and negative thought, we would self destruct and cease to exist. Vision and belief come first and action follows. Visualize your dreams and desires and your mind will open the door to make them real.

It is my belief that there is a quiescent (inactive or dormant) part of your brain that when aroused will give you the potential to achieve heights beyond your imagination. All we have to do is use the right key to unlock that power. I have several keys that we can use. However first I want you to consider the primary purpose for which you are, presumably, reading “Highways and Byways of the Mind”. Naturally, it must be to acquire the ability to help yourself and stay free of those monsters that have invaded your life. By following my instructions on auto suggestion and the subconscious mind, as I have laid out for you in the section titled Auto Suggestion, you can convince your mind to receive that for which you ask. It will act upon your suggestion which your subconscious mind passes back to you in the form of faith.

Faith is the state of mind which you may develop at will, after you have mastered all the steps in my text, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through applying and using these steps.

The most powerful of all human emotions are Faith, Love and Sex. When faith is mixed with the vibration of thought the subconscious mind picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in prayer. To allow wisdom to flow in freely from God's infinite intelligence is wise. Wisdom is the inflowing of the divine spirit itself.

Spirituality, in a narrow sense, concerns itself with matters of the spirit. What exactly is the spirit? It is hard to explain. It could be the fundamental emotional and activating principle determining one's character. On the other hand, in religion it is the deepest part of the soul of man and the transmitting organ by which human beings can contact God. My interpretation is a little of both, a person’s character and the deepest part of their soul that links between human and God. The spirit therefore, is ones inner self. The spirit is the foundation of one’s humanity and at life’s end the spirit leaves the body. Therefore the spirit and the soul are pretty much the same. You die and your spirit/soul moves on. However while you are alive you are the spirit. The hopeful truth remains that there is an eternal flame of the spirit in all of us and if we tend to it and give it nourishment we have the ability to create and change the world in a positive way.

Now I’d say that’s really not so complicated. When I say I want to help heal your spirit basically I want to help heal the whole you, Body, “Mind, and Spirit.”

Let’s talk about Peace, Serenity, and Tranquility. Can you remember the last time that you took a moment to gaze at the sky or look at the ocean and see all the beauty they bestow .How about watching the leaves on a tree dancing in the wind or lovely flowers glistening in the sun? When you allow yourself to soak in and appreciate these peaceful moments, you can experience instant peace and tranquility. I call these moments’ natures’ relievers. Good music, works of art, poetry and literature are also nature’s relievers and a tool for instant relief from misery and pain.

It’s easy to meditate using nature’s relievers experiencing the simple beauty that is everywhere around us. Close your eyes and inwardly embrace the magnificence of all the natural surroundings the Real World has to offer. I know in the hectic world you live in you probably don’t have time for such nonsense. Life circumstances have robbed you of the joy you should be experiencing in life. When you feel anxious or stressful, take a moment and realize all the good things that you are missing, then respond in a positive manner to the dynamic glories around you and rejuvenate yourself in rebirth.

This is what I sincerely believe and for no other reason than LOVE I want you to listen to me. I believe in what's solid and firm, something that's not a mystery and is easy to confirm. I believe in LOVE. I'm not sure that the Holy Bible was written under the influence of God and I don't know for sure that from here there's a hereafter. There's one thing for sure that I do know and that's the power of Love and how it can grow. Hate, disagreement and turmoil are a few of the things that cause war and destruction. Whereas, true Love given is the quickest way to peace and serenity. Whether God sits somewhere above us on his throne to guide and direct us is still a mystery to me. I know for sure that if the foundation of our life is fortified with LOVE we will have a great destiny.

There's a God in my heart and I call my GOD LOVE and my God's as strong and as powerful as anything that comes from above. Love is not something that you need blind faith just to know that it's there. If you open your eyes you'll see it everywhere. I believe in LOVE and that's one thing I want to share. If you love yourself and others, Peace and Serenity will surely be yours from the beginning to the end of your life journey.

Success, whether measured in business, family or love, is often determined by the "right" attitude. Unfortunately, maintaining that proper frame of mind, a positive attitude, isn't always easy. Sometimes, in spite of our best efforts, life just seems intent on bringing us down. Inspiration, however, is rarely far away - if we are but willing to look for it. No one is ever born into life alone. Everyone has shared the bond of family, at least at birth, and for many people it is a bond that will follow them throughout life. For many people it is the most important bond of all. No one person can ever experience all that life has to offer. It is only through sharing experiences, feelings and insights that we can hope to grow beyond our own meager lifetime.

If Jimmy Carter did nothing else for us as a president, his statement on faith was quite profound.

“I have one life and one chance to make it count for something . . . I'm free to choose what that something is, and the something I've chosen is my faith. Now, my faith goes beyond theology and religion and requires considerable work and effort. My faith demands -- this is not optional -- my faith demands that I do whatever I can, wherever I am, whenever I can, for as long as I can with whatever I have to try to make a difference”.

Well My Friend, I’m glad you are still with me! I hope you are enjoying your trip along the highway of the mind. As we make these stops, on our event filled journey, pick up what you have learned and take it with you. Remember, learning is knowledge and knowledge is power. Our next stop is in a place called Denial. I don’t think anybody lives there; anyway, no one will admit it.
