“Is faith—the supreme assertion of human thought — desirable? Then must the mind of man find itself in that troublesome predicament where it ever knows less than it can believe. Is the love of truth and the willingness to go wherever it leads, desirable? Then must man grow up in a world where error is present and falsehood always possible.” (UB, 3:5.10)
Thought Adjuster: “You are inquiring about the nature of faith. Is it a divine gift or a choice? Can a man have faith thanks to the knowledge of truth? Is it God who puts faith in his heart, or does it grow from his choice to believe in God?
My answer is ‘All of the above.’ Faith is both a divine gift and a choice. How else, as free will creatures, could you get to KNOW the reality of your divine progenitor? The mind-boggling intelligence you witness at work in the entire creation should be reason enough for you to take your first leap of faith. Most assuredly, you have all the necessary endowments to succeed in your ascension journey back in the fullness of the divine embrace.
During the embryonic phase of your soul’s evolution, you have the status of Agondonters — those who believe without seeing. What you may label as a handicap prompts you to grow in faith and courage. Faith initiatives do require bravery. Unbeknownst to many of you, you are plugged into the benevolent network of the Seven Adjutant Mind Spirits:
- Intuition prompts you.
- Understanding guides your step toward the assimilation of truth.
- Knowledge becomes a personal asset.
- Courage makes you operational.
- Counsel assists you with brain-, heart-, and soul-storming.
- Wisdom is the resulting spiritual royal jelly.
- Worship is the irrepressible climax of this revelatory process.
By then, your spiritual eyes are wide open, and you no longer operate on “blind” faith. From this perspective, you can see that faith is a crucial driving force in your quest for reliable and enlightening truth.”
