We should daily affirm that new ideas are coming to us, new ways of doing things; that we are meeting new and wonderful friends, new situations; that joyous things are going to happen to us. The Creative Principle is always reacting to us as we act in It. It is always creating in our bodies and our affairs. Consequently, we should all learn to live in a state of joyous and enthusiastic expectancy. This is the principle upon which faith and the answer to prayer are based.

Let us, then, bless everything we do and everyone we meet, knowing that the limitations of the past need not be carried into the future. Nothing is too good to be true.  Nothing is too much to ask of the Power that can do anything.

There is something within each one of us which is conscious of our unity with Good, with all the Power there is. Upon this Power, Presence, and Light we must depend with complete confidence. Thus faith passes into experience with scientific certainty. Faith is the most dynamic phenomenon known.
