Series 2 - Lesson 8 - Annotation 5
How is a consciousness of faith in God, the good, developed?
5. A consciousness of faith in God, the good, is developed through use. Man learns to use his faith rightly by disciplining his thoughts, feelings, words, and actions to express such faith. Our consciousness of faith is stimulated through reading of the demonstrations of others. However we must expand our faith in God, the good, by releasing our false beliefs about God, about ourselves and our fellowmen and conditions as they appear to be. As one thinks on Truth and prays, uses denials and affirmations, meditates, lives, and acts in the consciousness of his oneness with God, the only Presence and Power, he is well on his way to developing and establishing a consciousness of faith in God upon which to base his life and living in all his human experiences. This process is a constant activity, making faith in God, the good, a living reality.
