Can I control my future?

Man and the universe are spiritual, not material. God, divine Principle, governs the universe with precision and love. Man reflects the quality of dominion from his perfect Principle, and we can exercise control as we yield to Principle's absolute authority.

It may seem paradoxical to say we control by yielding, but the master Christian demonstrated this. Jesus said, "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me." John 5:30; Yielding, then, means relinquishing human will to God's will and renouncing human egotism for spiritual selfhood, God's expression—our true self. This yielding alters our perspective and shows us how to cope with the anxiety often accompanying change.
