        From an Essay written by Christian D. Larson:
                With Faith All Things Are Possible.
                        To him who has Faith all things are possible.

          To understand faith is to better understand the Power of G-d; within us and surrounding us in the world in which we live.  We can read in scripture that "faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen" and though these words may inspire us, it is an action in mind that must take place for us to realize the fullness of this truth.  This action in mind is to cultivate, foster and consciously recognize that we have all the faith that is necessary to do the things that we want to do and to have the things we want to have and to be that which we want to be.

        From Christian D. Larson:
Faith is that something in man that transcends every form of limitation and opens the mind to the limitless powers of the soul.

It is faith that emancipates the person; it is faith that unfolds the unbounded greatness of the soul; it is faith that removes the veil of mystery and reveals to man that wonderful world, that limitless world, that divinely beautiful world that is within.

                   When the Master Mind Jesus said, "you will know the truth and the truth will set you free" ... he was referring to faith.  Faith is a power, a magnetic energy, a form of chemistry and a force in and of itself.  It is the power within us that we can use to transcend conditions and circumstances that we no longer desire to experience.

Faith has been the hidden secret of the great souls in every age; faith has been the secret through which all miracles have been wrought; faith has been the secret through which the prophet gained his wisdom and his power; faith has been the secret through which the sons of glory gained their rare and wonderful genius; faith has been the secret through which everything high, everything worthy and everything beautiful has been given to the world.

It is faith that the awakened minds have eternally sought to find, though not always knowing that the hidden secret was faith, and faith alone; and it is faith that will change the world, as the world should be changed, when its inner sanctuary has been entered by the mind of man.

Faith is the hidden secret to everything; the key that unlocks every door that may exist in the universe; faith is the perfect way to that inner world from which all things proceed; faith is the royal path to unbounded power, immeasurable wisdom and limitless love; faith is the gates ajar to that kingdom which first must be sought if all other things arc to be added; faith is the hidden secret to every desire and need of man.

               Jesus said, "ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be opened unto you" ... and in these words he describes the dynamic power of faith to attract to us all that we "claim" to be true for us.  As we identify that which we desire to experience within our mind, our thoughts and the images that come to our awareness, we are attracting to us like a magnet those things that are the "evidence of things not seen" ... those things yet unseen that in faith we have claimed as ours to have, to do or to be. 

     A Living Faith - There is a faith that is faith; there is a faith that can do all things; there is a faith that moves mountains, whatever those mountains may be; there is a faith that rises above every obstacle in the world and reaches the greatest heights that the mind of man may have in view; and it is this faith that is the hidden secret.

When this faith is attained all the ills of human life must take their departure; when this faith is attained every form of poverty must vanish, never to appear again; when this faith is attained every wrong will be righted, the crooked paths made straight, and every wish of the heart satisfied.

This faith is a living faith; it is a faith that works; not a faith that simply consoles. It is not a faith that merely believes things, but a faith that does things.

It is this faith that opens the mind to the limitless possibilities of the great within and gives to man that something through which he may become as great as he ever may desire to be.

It is this faith that the Master Mind [Jesus] referred to when he declared that nothing shall be impossible unto you; it is this faith that gives the word of truth its invincible power; it is this faith that gives birth to the living thought - the thought that has healing on its wings.

              From the Gospel of Matthew 17:20, we can read, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." 
So many of us doubt our measure of faith, but it is not lack of faith that blocks us from having the good that we desire, it is our unwillingness to discover the faith in ourselves that is our short-coming.  We must cultivate, foster and nurture the truth that we do have enough faith, always have had and always will have.  Too many of us have lost faith in ourselves because of the drama we have experienced in the past.  But, faith is not about how many times we've been knocked down, but about how many times we have picked ourselves up.

It is this faith that will emancipate the race, bring peace on earth, goodwill to man; and it is this faith that will reveal to mind the hidden spirit of truth - that spirit which, when known, will give man freedom from everything that is human, and the power to attain everything that is divine.

To possess such a faith is the prayer of every spiritual heart, and it is tidings of great joy, indeed, that this prayer may be answered, and answered now.

A Faith That Knows - To fully define this faith is an effort that will never be attempted, because true faith is far beyond the description of words; the true faith is something that must be spiritually discerned, and the higher one ascends in the understanding of the spirit the larger and more powerful this faith becomes.

Faith is not mere belief; neither is it a doctrine about anything that was, is, or is to be. Faith and belief have nothing in common; they are as different as darkness and light.

Belief is human; faith is more than human; belief knows nothing; faith knows everything.

The true faith is a spiritual state of mind; a state of mind that is very deep, very high, and beautiful beyond description. It is a State of mind that knows; and it knows, because to be in faith is to be upon the mountaintop of intelligence, wisdom and illumination.

The innumerable kingdoms of the great within are known to faith; faith knows everything that is high, everything that is perfect, everything that is limitless, everything that is supreme; faith knows because it has seen; seen with the eyes of the spiritual vision.

Faith is an attitude of mind that turns the superior sense of man towards the inner, the hidden, the unseen, the great beyond, and takes consciousness into those finer realms where everything is perfect, and far more real than that which appears to visible sight.

Faith demonstrates that that which seems unreal is absolutely real; that that which seems hidden can be revealed to any mind, and understood by any mind; and that the invisible becomes visible to all those who will open the full vision that exists within them.

Faith demonstrates that the inner world is far more substantial than the outer world, and that the farther we proceed into the great within the more substantial, the more real, the more perfect and the more beautiful everything becomes.

One of the principal functions of faith is to enter the boundless and awaken the great within; and since all increase in life, power and ability comes from the awakening of a larger and a larger measure of the within, we understand perfectly why all things are possible to him who has faith.

Too many people in the world say they believe in Jesus and still don't believe what Jesus was teaching.  He said, "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" ...  but we must make up our mind what we want to have, what we want to be and what we want to do ... and when we do, we activate the power of faith within us ... a power greater than anything in the world ... it is the Power of G-d within us creating through us, as us and for us .... with faith we can realize a heaven right where we are! 


Keep the faith!
. Henry Bates
