Faith & Inner Calm
One single element in one's character that without it how she or he is miserable. That's a power that when its directions comes parallel with those of others, great forces develop to drastically re-enforce or change the destiny of communities or even mankind. An element with a much more inherent value than its target.
of us in our passage through life, whether we are religious or not,
experience what Beatrice Webb called "a yearning for the mental
security of a spiritual home." We need the inner resources that give
hope, strength, and peace of soul. We need a spiritual philosophy to help
us meet the problems of life, to see us through the dark hours that
inevitably come to us all.
"Man must be arched and bettressed from within, else the temple wavers to the dust," wrote Marcus Aurelius eighteen hundred years ego.
With faith a man is never alone, never forsaken. In illness, trouble, danger, despair, he is not alone. Faith gives him help and guidance; faith gives him comfort and peace.
"Every sort of energy and endurance, of courage and capacity for handling life's evils, is set free in those who have religious faith." said William James.
