Full text and audio of American writer Ernest Holmes’ talk titled “The Secrets of Belief”…
Listen to the MP3 Audio here:
This evening, I am going to talk to you about a power for good in the universe, greater than you are, greater than I am, greater than all of us. A power for good that we can use in everyday life for everything.
When the greatest teacher who ever lived said it is done unto you as you believe. What do you suppose he was talking about? This mastermind was talking about a spiritual power in the universe, something so close to us that it is in the mirror, than our hands and feet closer to us, than our very next being, as the old Talmud said.
And so, this power is not something we have to go in search after, it is something that is right here: close, nearer, than our very breath.
How then would we use the power that is so intimate? Certainly we should have to use it in an intimate way. And we would certainly have to believe that the power exists is a power not against us. It is willing and not reluctant, we should actually have to believe that it really is done unto us as we believe. Then we would have to believe.
What is belief anyway? These other things I want to discuss with you tonight: How it is that we could use this power for good, greater than we are, wonderful, the thing the whole world wants more than anything else in the world, the thing that you and I have for the taking, for the asking, for the using, power that responds to us, causing to our conviction in it.
However it is used in our own mind, in our own thinking, right, where we are, how close and how intimate such power is and how wonderful it is, just to believe that we’re going to learn how to use it.
