Chapter 3-Faith-

The “eternal elixir” which gives life, power, and action to the impulse of Thought

Napoleon  Hill give Seven statements as to what Faith is.  I have chosen about five of these statements to memorize so I can keep on the positive way of life that I feel 

I must have at this time. They are:

    FAITH is the “eternal elixir” which give life, power, and action to the impulse of  thought

    FAITH is the basis of all “Miracles,”and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science!

    FAITH is the only know antidote for FAILURE!

    FAITH is he element, the “chemical” which, when mixed with prayer, gives one direct communication with infinite intelligence

    FAITH is the element which transforms the ordinary vibration of thought, created by the finite mind of man, into the spiritual equivalent.

    FAITH is the only agency through which the cosmic force of infinite intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.

Then Mr. Hill says,”ENERY ONE OF THE FOREGOING STATEMENTS IS CAPABLE OF PROOF.”

Mr. Hill also says That the proof is simple and easily demonstrated.  It is wrapped up in the principle of auto-suggestion.  

As I think about each one of these statements I know that is true.  I feel the last statement which says,”Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of infinite intelligence can by harnessed and used by man is especially true when we consider what is happening in the world today.  The positive auto-suggestions of people who are saying prayers, and doing positive actions for humanity is proof of this statement as well as the negative auto suggestions are doing what is being said by the people who are using negative thoughts or auto-suggestions. 

I pray and say positive auto-suggestions of the positive actions and prayers. I believe that they will win out and the world will be at peace and have unity in diversity.
