To the person who has faith nothing is impossible. It matters not what you may wish to realize or what you may wish to do; if you have faith, it can be done.
But what do we mean by faith? Faith is not a passive belief; it is positive action. It is the power of the spirit within us, acting upon the life, mind, body, and the nature of our being; and by acting through us, it acts upon everything with which we may come in contact.
When we have faith, we do not simply believe in the form or that which may exist in the external. When we have faith, we enter into the spirit of that in which we express our faith. The secret of real faith, and the real power of such a faith, is therefore found in the spirit.
