Chapter 15 - Action Abroad
THE rules that apply to your action at home must apply to
your action everywhere.
Never forget for an instant that this is a perfect world, and
that you are a god among gods. You are as great as the
greatest, but all are your equals.
Rely absolutely on your perception of truth. Trust to the
inner light rather than to reason, but be sure that your
perception comes from the inner light; act in poise and
calmness; be still and attend on God.
Your identification of yourself with the All-Mind will give you
all the knowledge you need for guidance in any contingency
that may arise in your own life or in the lives of others.
It is only necessary that you should be supremely calm, and
rely upon the eternal wisdom that is within you.
If you act in poise and faith, your judgment will always be
right, and you will always know exactly what to do.

Fredericksburg, Lincoln alone furnished a supply of faith and
hope for the nation.

sadly into his room and came out cheerful and hopeful.| brought to you by Christopher Westra  Page 63
