Faith and Imagination
I use Faith and Imagination to be Christ,
my Divine Potential.
Some say seeing is believing. Research shows we tend to see through the lens of our beliefs. In other words, we tend to see based on what we believe. This is where the Power of Faith comes in. It is our ability to believe. Charles Fillmore called it “the perceiving power of the mind linked with the power to shape substance.” In this sense, Faith is linked with the Power of Imagination. We use Faith to believe in something in our minds before there is any evidence of it in the outer realm of empirical forms.
I invest time in meditation and prayer to establish an awareness of my Divine Potential. I believe I am Christ; I am Infinite Potential expressing finitely. The more I believe I am Christ the more easily I see it in others and myself. As I use Faith to perceive my Divine Identity I use Imagination to give It substance in mind – give It shape and from in my mind. I see It more clearly in my mind’s eye. This enables me to be the Christ I already am more and more each day.
