One of the greatest thinkers of our time has written a book that is truly inspiring and thought provoking. To do all things in the conviction that God is with you, 4. This is why all things become possible when we have faith. And from that moment you will not be limited to the power of the personal self; instead you will fill the personal self with that divine power from on high that is limitless, inexhaustible and invincible. Based in Bingham, Nottinghamshire, Linda is well placed to be of service to people in the Grantham, Melton, Newark and Nottingham areas. But the power of self-confidence is but an atom in comparison with the marvellous power of faith.
The true desire and the true prayer are synonymous. When you begin to live and work for a great purpose, you get into the current of great forces, great minds and great souls. Your will is as much of the divine will as you are using now, and it is your privilege to use as much of the divine will as you may desire. Then, as we proceed, we discover, to our amazement, that life in the real is so large and so immensely rich that we will need eternity to live it all. And the more thought we give to the interior person, the more life and power we bring forth from within.
That is what we all are eager to know. To constantly think of your will and the divine will as the same will, is to place your mind in such perfect harmony with limitless power of divine will that you can appropriate this power in larger and larger measure, and the more you appropriate, the stronger becomes the power of will in you. The true prayer is invariably some immensely strong desire expressed when your human mind feels the sublime touch of the Infinite mind; and the true desire must be in perfect touch with Infinite life in order to be filled with the invincible power of that life. To follow the soul is to enter the greater domains of life, those domains from which you may secure everything that is rich and beautiful and superior in human existence. In consequence, the more confidence you have in yourself, the more you will attain and accomplish. The wish must be whole-hearted, not half-hearted; it must contain all the power we have, not simply the limited actions of shallow thinking; and it must contain soul, not simply emotion, but that deep, spiritual feeling that touches the very spirit of limitless life and power.
When you depend upon the personal self, you place yourself in touch only with the lesser forces on the surface; you therefore will accomplish but little; but when you depend upon the supreme spiritual self, you place yourself in touch with the greater powers within, and results will be greater in proportion. The principal cause of failure among those who are trying to live in harmony with real truth, may be found in the general tendency to think of the outer person as the power that does things on the visible plane. Whenever you accomplish something worth while, and give the praise to your own outer personal self, you immediately lose your hold on those powers through which those results were gained; in consequence, failure will begin, and you will have to retrace all your former steps to again gain possession of that power that can do whatever you may wish to have done. To the minds of the many the true meaning of the Will of God has not been made perfectly clear; therefore, the majority, even among those who have strong spiritual tendencies, hesitate to give up to the absolute direction of higher power. The soul leads, not only into the life more abundant, but also into the actual possession of all the spiritual riches that the greater life may contain. And that is our purpose; to realize our largest and dearest desires in the present, and then press on to the realization of other and far greater desires in the future.
The interior man is the man, created in the image and likeness of God; it is therefore evident that when you begin to live with the life and the power of the interior man, the expression of real greatness and real spirituality will begin. We may be wholly right in some things while the very opposite in other things. When you use your personal will as your own isolated power, you separate your mind more and more from the source of your power; in consequence, the power of your will becomes weaker, and you necessarily fail to accomplish what you have in view. When you begin to live and work for a great purpose, you get into the current of great forces, great minds and great souls. To pray without ceasing, the true worship of the soul. Larson 1874—1962 was an outstanding and highly influential early New Thought leader and teacher as well as a prolific writer of New Thought books who believed that people have tremendous latent powers, which could be harnessed for success with the proper attitude. What are the great centres of life about which we may build a greater and a greater life? Then We shall please the person better than ever before.

To live in the constant recognition of this great truth, is to rise continually into higher and higher degrees of that mastery of life that gives you the power to live your life according to your most perfect ideals. The fact that we can have an ideal, proves that we have the power to secure it. The fact that you can formulate and appreciate a desire for something larger and better, proves that you can fulfill that desire. Then you must will to press on, knowing that you are using divine will, the Supreme will of the Most High, because this is the only will in the universe.
When we act in perfect accord with the laws of life on all the planes of being, we are doing the Will of God because what we call law in life is the Will of God in expression in life.

Every moment will give us the peace that passeth understanding, every hour will be filled with the joy everlasting, and every day will be as a thousand years in celestial kingdoms on high. To live in perpetual gratitude to The One who gives everything, 8. The divine will does not attempt to overcome evils and obstacles with antagonistic or domineering forces; the divine will does not fight wrong, it transforms wrong. We cannot desire too much, and when we desire with all the life and power that is within us, our desires shall positively be fulfilled. We are all in the midst of great transformation.
What are we to do first? All that we see in the life of the universe is the eternal coming forth of Divine Will, and the perpetual returning to the One Source. And also, when we use that expression of life in entering into a larger measure of life, we do the Will of God in that place. Be yourself today, regardless of what happened yesterday. The laws of life are all expressions of Supreme will. The elements of life can be modified, changed, developed and perfected to comply with your own supreme demand; the increase of life can be realized in the exact measure of your largest need; you are in living touch with Infinite life, and there is neither limit nor end to the source of your supply. It is one of those principles that you shall always require, no matter how high you may rise in the scale of divine being.
