The Right Side

SOMETIMES we are faced with problems that seem difficult to solve. Would it not be well at such times to be still and ask ourselves: On which side are we fighting? Do we admit over and over again that there is lack, or sickness, or discord? Do we insist on shouldering the responsibility that belongs to another? Do we argue for error, and insist on its actuality?

Every statement of truth we voice makes Truth more real to us, and helps us to "cast the net on the right side;" but every time we are tricked by error into declaring there is lack or sickness, we make those errors seem real. By thus casting the net on the wrong side, we for the time being fail to prove the allness of good. What we think and voice, we bring into experience. And oftentimes we insist so emphatically on the seeming reality of error that those around us are deceived into believing the same lie.
