Book Review Continues

Hello everyone, a big shout out to our new members, happy to have you on board the secretlilies ship. I hope and pray that you will love it.....

Before I start the book review, you can never guess what happened to me. I woke up this morning, went straight to my blog and vamp, started writing, finished examined my work and loved it, clicked the publish post button and watched my post disappear due to network problem.... Well I am back again, nobody stopping me from blogging.....

For our new members the book I am reviewing : " THINK & GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill. For those of us in Lagos you can get it in Laterna ventures, Victoria Island for #1,200 and they even do home delivery, so you can call and order. Do check their website for more details. For those of us out of Nigeria we can get the book on Amazon or Barnes & Nobles.

"Last time if you recall I talked about The MIND. Today it will be about FAITH. Although FAITH & MIND have almost the same kind of qualities they are different in their own way, but intertwined.

"Faith is the head chemist of the mind. When faith is blended with thoughts, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to infinite intelligence, as in the case of prayer.

Faith is a state of mind which you may have to develop at will, after you have mastered the thirteen principles, because it is a state of mind which develops voluntarily, through application and use of these principles.... like....repetition..

Repetition of affirmation of orders to your subconscious mind is the only known method of voluntary development of the emotion of faith.

A mind dominated by positive emotions, becomes a favorable abode for the state of mind known as faith. A mind so dominated may, at will, give the subconscious mind instructions, which it will accept and act upon immediately. Even the bible says if you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can move mountains. Faith is a very powerful tool that a lot of us do not have. We have to cultivate it, if we want to be rich, famous, excel in whatever area we find ourselves.
How many of us as children did our parents have faith in our dreams even though they hadn't seen it? How many of us have faith in our selves, our loves ones, our partners, our friends? How many of us have faith in our country? Faith so small yet so powerful...

Have faith in yourself: faith is the infinite.
Faith is the eternal elixir which gives life, power and actions to the impulse of thought.
Faith is the starting point of all accumulation of riches.
Faith is the basis of all miracles and all mysteries which cannot be analyzed by the rules of science.
Faith is the only known antidote for failure.
Faith is the 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 thoughts, created by the finite mind of man, into spiritual equivalent.
Faith is the only agency through which the cosmic force of infinite intelligence can be harnessed and used by man.

Whoa FAITH is mind blowing.... It is time for us to develop our faith....
