"Faith is trust. You trusted your mother when you were in her arms; you looked into her eyes and you saw love there. Your "Peter" is your faith and trust in God, and it should be even greater than faith in your mother."
The man of faith puts his trust in the Invisible Power within him. He knows this is the Kingdom of the Real. He knows that his ideal is real in the Inner Kingdom and that his faith or feeling will cause the formless or the invisible to take form as a condition, event or experience. This is why the man of faith walks upon the waters and moves in confidence and understanding to the Promised Land –his cherished goal. Faith is accepting as true what your reason and intellect deny.
All great scientists, mystics, artists, poets and inventors are gifted or possessed by an abiding faith and trust in the Invisible Power within.
Faith is trust. You trusted your mother when you were in her arms; you looked into her eyes and you saw love there. Your "Peter" is your faith in God, and it should be even greater than faith in your mother.
As you know this, turn your desire or request over to the subjective mind within you, acknowledging in your heart that it has the answer and the "know how" of accomplishment, and that its ways are past finding out. When you are relaxed and peaceful, you will know you have succeeded in impregnating your deeper mind. Signs follow; the wave of peace is the sign; this is inner conviction. You now walk above all the waters of confusion, chaos, and false beliefs, because what you feel to be true will be experienced in a very concrete form.
Blend Peter (faith) and Jesus (desire) together, and miracles will happen.
