Science of Mind - Faith

To start the day off right, first thing in the morning, after the dog goes out, I sit with a cup of herbal tea and read the Daily Guides in Science of Mind Magazine. From time to time, I’ll paraphrase the ones that hit me hard. This one is by Ron Fox on keeping the faith.

“Prayer is not an act of overcoming God’s reluctance, but should be an active acceptance of His highest willingness.” Science of Mind text.

“The point of power is in the present moment. We can make a shift anytime we choose.” Louise Hay.

“Our lack of faith can be a way of accepting the status quo, a failure to move beyond what is comfortable and familiar. We cling to what is, rather than seeing what could be. The spiritual path is a process with no final destination. It is one long opportunity to learn and grow. In difficult times… our faith (in the top two quotes) can transport us to new levels. We emerge on the other side of problems transformed and renewed.” Ron Fox.

“The essence of struggle is to become new, rather than simply becoming older.” Sister Joan Chittister.
