Ch. 17. VII. 6 – 10. Jesus: “The reality of the goal of truth will call forth and accomplish every miracle needed for its fulfillment. Nothing too small or too enormous, too weak or too compelling, but will be gently turned to its use and purpose. The universe will serve it gladly, as it serves the universe.
But do not interfere! The power set in you in whom the Holy Spirit’s goal has been established is so far beyond your little ‘conception of the infinite’ that you have no idea how great the strength that goes with you. And you can use this strength in perfect safety! Yet for all its might, so great that it reaches past the stars and to the universe of God that lies beyond them, if you would use even the slightest faithlessness instead, you have made that power useless to you!
Yet consider now the following passages to learn the cause of your faithlessness: You think you hold against your brother what he has ‘done to you.’ But what you really blame him for is what you think you did to him! It is not his past, but your guilt from yours projected onto him! And then you lack faith in him, but only because of what you think you were in your imagined past!
Yet you are as innocent of ‘what you were’ as he is! What never was is causeless, and though imagined, is not there to interfere with truth. There is no cause for faithlessness, but there is Cause for faith. That Cause has entered any situation that shares Its purpose!
The light of truth now shines from the center of every situation. And it touches everyone to whom the situation’s truthful purpose now calls. It calls to everyone! There is no situation that does not involve your whole relationship, in every aspect and complete in every part. You can leave nothing of yourself outside of it and keep the situation holy. For it shares the purpose of your whole relationship, and derives its meaning from it.
Enter now each and every new situation with anyone holding to the same faith you have learned to give your brother, or you demonstrate that you are faithless to your own relationship! Your faith will call the others to share your purpose, as the same purpose of truth called forth the faith in you. And you will see the means you once employed to further your illusions now transformed into the means for truth. Truth calls for faith, and faith itself makes room for truth!
When the Holy Spirit changed the purpose of your relationship by exchanging His in place of yours, the goal He placed there was extended to every relationship and situation into which you enter, or will ever enter from now on. And every situation has thus been made free of the past, which would have made it purposeless.
You call for faith because of Him Who walks with you in every situation. You are no longer wholly insane, nor any longer think yourself alone. For ‘loneliness in God’ must be a dream! You whose relationship shares the Holy Spirit’s goal, are set apart from loneliness because the truth has come. Its call for faith is strong. Use not your faithlessness against it, for it calls you to salvation and to peace.”
