smallest thing of our everyday life to the rolling away of
the largest stone of difficulty from our path, this Presence will come
in to deliver us. But its working depends on our trusting, and
trusting means getting still inside."
- H. Emilie Cady - How I Used Truth
the statement above H. Emilie Cady is re-stating similar statements made
by Dr. Ernest Holmes, author of "The Science of Mind."
In fact, Dr. Holmes devoted much of his writings to the issue of trust.
One of my favorite sub-chapters in "The Science of Mind," is
"Learning To Trust Will Make You Happy." It is trust
that aligns us with God, Infinite Good ... there is no awareness of God
without trust. Lack of trust is grounded in fear ... and fear is
the anti-thesis of faith ... and lack of trust can lead to despair.
Despair is subtle ... it resides within us ... it is that
something that keeps us removed from enthusiasm and hope. Despair
robs us of the joy of Life. It can keep us on edge, it can create
stress in both our bodies and our minds. And it can lead to severe
depression. Despair is fostered by our allowing ourselves to think
small ... by allowing ourselves to accept limited Good in a world of
abundant Good ... ideas of low self-worth, thoughts of undeserving of
Good .. and self-rejection increase the measure of despair in our
consciousness. The nature of despair is a diminished ability to
get into the spirit of Life. It is prevalent throughout our
society as evidenced by the number of people who seek help through
psychologists, therapists, psycho-therapists and prescription drugs.
But none of these can solve the problem for the solution is spiritual.
The greatest and best psychologist, therapist, etc. cannot "touch
our soul" ... only God in Its Super-Natural way can do it.
Many of us have lost faith in the Super-Natural nature of God.
We have forgotten that beyond what we can see, beyond the Natural .. is
the Omnipresent Super-Natural. What we refer to as miracles in the
Natural ... is only the very nature of the Super-Natural as It is
activated in our experiences by our faith ... by our trust.
We can read in scripture that we are to "Love God" first ...
but without trust there is no Love ... and we will find it very
difficult to love others or to love ourselves ... to trust others .. or
to trust ourselves ... if we do not "trust in God."
I find that even in metaphysical teachings such as Religious
Science, there are many who cannot accept the Super-Natural nature of
God ... there are those who will say "God Is the Source" of my
money ... or "there is only One Source of All Things" ... or
"God Is All There Is" .... and then turn around and not trust
this One Source to BE the Source of all things when the Natural doesn't
appear so pleasant ... God Is Omnipresent and therefore Good Is
Omnipresent ... and in Omnipresence there is nothing else ... nothing
else that gives to us ... no other activity in our Life but Good ... and
our trust in the Super-Natural nature of God never leaves us without a
solution, without love, peace or joy. But we
must trust the Super-Natural with everything from the smallest thing of
our everyday life to the rolling away of the largest stone of difficulty
from our path, we must trust this Presence will deliver us. For,
its working depends on our trusting, and trusting means getting still
inside ... to still the fear ... still the worry ... get so still that
nothing can disturb our contemplation of the Power and Presence of God
in our lives ... and from this stillness ... the Super-Natural is
So It Is!
