on choosing faith
Faith is power. It changes your life by changing you. It places you on a different ground of being within yourself. It gives you a confidence based on something that's in you but not of you, that can do for you what you can't do for yourself. It keeps you from shrinking into victim consciousness - a stance that attracts more victimization - and lifts you to positivity, which attracts more positive outcomes. Where we put our faith literally and directly influences what happens next.
I can have faith in the power of the world, or faith in the power of miracles. I can have faith in the power of external things, or faith in the God who lives within me.
