Have Faith In Your Life & Faith In Yourself - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins



Have faith in your life and faith in yourself. There is nothing to fear. A way will be made for you, but first, you must make a clear decision and act upon it. For faith is not enough. Faith must be followed by activity. It is not enough to know of events, one must take action to help the internal dreams to be manifested into physical reality.

Within us all lies the seeds to our destruction, but also within each heart, lies the seeds to one's reconstruction as a human being-from one driven by fear to one driven by love. It is each persons responsibility to live in a way that nurtures and supports the good within. It takes effort to weed a garden, so the plants grow healthy and strong. There are no techniques or devices or systems that will lead one to one's deliverance from human suffering. This has been a misunderstanding for many thousands of years. Only through right action will one evolve into a true human being. Change one's behavior by living in a way that enriches and supports a healthy body, mind, and spirit.

Be responsible and part of the human community and have no concern for all the false ones who teach fear and lack of concern for their fellow humans. Live by example. Give your love freely. For, in freedom is grown a loving and kind heart.

Do not despair for yourself or others. You will have just what you need, just when you need it. All future events cannot and will not be revealed. It is best just to accept what life has to offer to you and join with the Creator in creating a world that is better suited for kind hearted, loving human beings. For as long as the dishonest and hate filled ones rule, life in this world will always be filled with sadness and disappointment.

Linda mensagem Michael!

Aniversário da minha irmã domingo, estou às voltas com preparação de um café com a família.
Sempre bom ouvir suas sensatas palavras.
Feito a flor, estou numa fase meio voltada para mim...

Grande beijo meu amigo,
Deise
