I am not a particularly religious man, but I do have faith and am always working on developing it further. After all, accepting that the wonder of the universe is part of a higher power allows us to have perspective, and help us through tough times.
I believe in prayer and am sufficiently satisfied that it really does work, both from my own experiences as well as from the experiences of other people as well. I will summarize some points that I think are relevant to help you in your day to day issues as well.
I think we all need to work on our faith, as it is the glue that can get us through some very difficult times. Let's face it, whilst life is very glorious, in spite of some difficult times, it is the getting through those times that I feel makes us stronger and educates us to handle new problems.
After all, when we solve problems, we are helping others and this is part of life and economic prosperity too. If you think about it, helping others is all about solving their problems which is why things are bought. There may be a need that is to be solved when a person buys a drill bit. They don't actually want a hole, but rather, maybe a fixing for a picture and so on.
I have included the above video because I feel the material from Catherine Ponder is fantastic, in helping you get through difficulty.
I have actually found that when I have a concern or a problem, by meditating on it for a short while, and then going to sleep, telling myself the answers will come and all will be worked out, I at that point, hand it over to a higher power'. I am not able to explain how this works exactly, other than to say that our mind is made up of an electronic brain, that is emitting radio frequency waves and is forming part of all the other waves in the universe. Others pick up on our problems, and are brought in to help, as it were.
Think about this. When you have had a problem in the past, you may have seen that an unexpected source provided a solution, such as a chance meeting, and so on. Do you really think that all these meetings are really chance meetings?
This is just an introductory post on this. I will be writing more over the coming days.
In the meantime, feel free to browse the resources on the page and see for yourself how we can gain so much.
I have gained a great deal from the Laws Material on the universe.
