We have to accept, just as we accept gravity, that there are self-existent spiritual and mental truths which, when known will automatically make us free.
We must provide a mold in thought which is equivalent to the thing that we desire. The Law of Mind is a spiritual Power which knows nothing about big and little; It knows nothing about certain persons, but so far as we are concerned, It must always act by reacting to our mental acceptances. That is, it must flow through the channel which we provide, or act in accord with the thought that sets It in motion.

It is the nature of the creative Law of Mind to respond to us, to give us what we ask, when we ask it, and in the way in which we ask it. Thus the childlike mind of acceptance is likened unto the Kingdom of Heaven. Not faith in God, but Faith Of God is unqualified acceptance.

Our bowl of acceptance must be held up so that it may be filled by the outpouring of Spirit. Its size may be measured in our individual experience according to the law of mental equivalents, which says that whatever we can inwardly conceive, we may outwardly experience. This is because the external is merely a reflection of the internal.

The habit of acceptance should be cultivated and used. Since we automatically attract that which is like our thought, and since our patterns of thought are largely habitual, why not form the habit of expectancy and acceptance?

And So It Is
