Listen to the Radio Broadcast of this
the faith that grows out of questioning is stronger than the faith born
of blind acceptance. It can withstand the shocks of circumstance.
Only he who questions the universe and questions it in utter honesty can
grow in his comprehension of the truth."
Dillet Freeman, Be!|
One of the things that drove me from traditional
religion was the negative attitude I encountered when I questioned what
was being taught. Yet, Jesus was always questioning the religious
leaders and religious dogma. We have all heard the words, "if
you don't use it, you lose it" and this is important to
remember when it comes to our faith. In the ancient scriptures we
are told to "pray without ceasing"
and in doing so we become conscious of what we are thinking and the
patterns of our thoughts. Knowing that thoughts have "formative
power" ... especially those thoughts about things that we
dwell on mentally, it is incumbent upon us to consistently "recognize"
that our thoughts are shaping our experiences. And we must
question what we think and believe in order to avoid consequences that
we don't want to experience.
I know that I repeat this statement of faith
from the teachings of the Master Mind Jesus often, but it is necessary
that we not lose sight of it: "For
most certainly I tell you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed,
you will tell this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will
move; and nothing will be impossible for you." And in
these simple words we can know that all is possible when our faith is in
tune with the Infinite Good. Does this mean that our faith can
only be used for what the world thinks of as good? No, it doesn't.
To be so would be to attribute limitation to faith, and that would be a
false idea. Faith, like electricity can be used for the good or it
can be used to negate the good ... even destroy what we might call good.
You might ask why is this possible and that would be a good question.
Since faith is a universal law, it works for everyone and everything in
the same precise way. Or, as stated so simply, "For
he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the
just and on the unjust."
Let's remember here what the Master Mind Jesus
said about faith; "the size of a mustard
seed" ... in other words we have varying "measures"
of faith as applied to various things. This is why we may pray
successfully for money, but our prayers miss the mark for loving
companionship. Another example may be a man who has the faith that
he can rob a bank, but doesn't have the same measure of faith to escape
being arrested. We have faith that night follows day, but doesn't
day also follow night? Our faith to be powerful must contain a
powerful conviction. And conviction comes from convincing
ourselves that we have the faith to do the thing that we set out to do.
look at some more wisdom contained in James Dillet Freeman's book, Be! .... "You
can learn to have faith. ... Faith is not an abstraction; it is an
attitude toward life, a feeling about life. It does not come out
of signs or miracles or any outward happenings so much as out of inward
growth. ... If you cannot believe in much, then believe in the little
that you can. Start where you are and grow. What seed can
have a foreknowledge of the tree it will become? What thorny bush
can prophesy the rose? What worm (caterpillar) can tell of the
butterfly? Faith grows."
Let's revisit that "faith
as a grain of mustard seed" illustration that the Master
Mind Jesus gave us. A mustard seed is infinitesimally small.
The mustard tree originates from Persia. The tree grows to about 20 feet
high and has an irregular shape. It is nearly as wide as it is tall.
In other words, it was a perfect symbol of the way in which our faith
can grow tremendously, and give us the power to experience big things;
great success, tremendous prosperity, limitless creativity and every
good desire of our heart. Jesus was a Master
Mind. "You of little faith, why are you so afraid?" ...
facts change, the truth does not. Keep faith with the truth, with
life, and feel the Spirit of G-d within you as your faith grows.
SO IT IS!
