There is hardly a person in our work who has not had his own glimpses of the miraculous, who has not at one time or another known his true connection with higher worlds. But our problem is fickleness. By talking in a doubting or cynical way about their own deepest feelings, by trying to make these feelings too reasonable and acceptable to others who have not shared them, people dissolve their own certainty. Then later they do not know what they know. To fix understanding it is necessary to affirm, affirm and affirm. Affirmation is the right attitude of the mind to the heart, of reason to conscience.

There is so much doubt and self-doubt in the world that it is not easy to remain unperturbed in one’s own vision of certainty. When we have certainty, we must actively project it to others, or they will gradually nibble it away from us.
