Faith is the second step towards riches according to Napoleon Hill.
Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayers.
The emotions of Love, Faith and Sex are three of the most powerful of all the major positive emotions. When the three are blended they have the effect of “colouring” the vibration of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, where it is changed into the spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from Infinite Intelligence.This three emotion when blended has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the finite, the thinking mind of man and Infinite Intelligence.
How To Develop Faith
Faith is a state of mind which may be induced, or created by affirmation or repeated instructions to the subconscious mind through the principle of auto-suggestion.
Repetition of affairmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.
Your beliefs, or faith is the element which determines the actions of your subconsciouss mind.
The subconscious mind will transmute into its physical equivalent by the most direct and practical media available, any order which is given to it in a state of belief or faith that the order will be carried out.
A mind dominated by positive emotions becomes a favourable abode for the state of mind known as faith.A mind so dominated may at will, give the subconscious mind instructions, which it will accept and act upon immediately.
In a language which any normal human being can understand, we will describe all that is known about the principles through which faith may be developed where it does not already exist.
Have faith in yourself; faith in the Infinite.
Before we begin you should be reminded again that:
Faith is the “external elixir” which gives life, power and action to the impulse of thought!
The foregoing sentence is worth reading a second time, a third and a fourth time. It is worth reading aloud!
Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches!
Faith is the basis of all “miracles” and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!
Faith is the only known antidote for failure!
Faith is the element, the “chemical”which when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with Infinite Intelligence.
Faith is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man into the spiritual equivalent.
Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of Infinite Intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.
It is a well known fact that one comes, finally, to believe whatever one repeats to one’s self, whether the statement is true or false. If a man repeats a lie over and over, he will eventually accept the lie as truth.Moreover he will believe it as truth. every man is what he is because of the dominating thoughts which he permits to occupy his mind.
Thoughts which a man deliberately places in his own mind, and encourages with sympathy and with which he mixes with faith, constitute the motivating forces which directs and controls his every movement, act and deed!
The power of faith was demonstrated by a man who is well known to all of civilization, Mahatma Gandhi, of India.Gandhi weilds more potential power than any man that lived in his time and despite the fact that he has none of the orthodox tools of power, such as money, battle ships, soldiers and materials of warfare. He had no money, no home, he does not own a suit of clothes, but he does have power.How does he come by that power?
He created it out of his understanding of the principles of faith and through his ability to transplant that faith into the minds of two hundred million people.
Gandhi has accomplish, through the influence of faith, that which the strongest military power on earth could not, and never will accomplish through soldiers and military equipment.He has accomplished the astounding feat of influencing two hundred million minds to coalesce and move in unison, as a single mind in what is termed non “violent resistance.” What other force on earth, except faith, could do as much?
Faith removes limitations! Remember this when you are ready to bargain with Life for whatever it is you ask as your price for having passed this way:
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life will pay no more,
However I begged at evening
when I counted my scanty store.
For Life is a just employer
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
I worked for a menial hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.
This is the universal truth about FAITH.
