Faith in ourselves will do everything
Let a man go down as low as possible; there must come a time when out of sheer desperation he will take an upward curve and will learn to have faith in himself. But it is better for us that we should know it from the very first.
Why should we have all these bitter experiences in order to gain faith in ourselves?
We can see that all the difference between man and man is owing to the existence of non-existence of faith in himself. Faith in ourselves will do everything. (CW, 2:301)
and mistakes are not forever. Let us proclaim to every soul the following:
Arise, awake and stop not till the goal is reached.
Arise, awake! Awake from this hypnotism of weakness.
None is really weak; the soul is infinite, omnipotent and omniscient.
Stand up, assert yourself, proclaim the God within you, do not deny Him. (CW, 3:193)
