How to Begin

"A reverence for God's omnipotence and omniscience is the best way for us to start thinking effectively"

The starting point is sometimes the hardest part of any human undertaking. Many people do not realize that the best beginning is to turn aside from the immediate situation and become deeply aware of the allness and goodness of God. If we acknowledge our divine source, thus realizing that our ability is freely given to us by infinite, inexhaustible Love, we do not become preoccupied with personal fears or limitations. We find the ideas we need by turning away from the stiffness of self-concern to the all-knowing, all-giving Mind. Then these ideas lead us —or perhaps lead others—to the practical steps that meet the human need.
