It is faith that steers us through stormy seas, faith that moves mountains and faith that jumps across the ocean. That faith is nothing but a living, wide-awake consciousness of God within. He who has achieved that faith wants nothing. Bodily diseased, he is spiritually healthy, physically poor, he rolls in spiritual riches.
Without faith this world would come to naught in a moment. True faith is appropriation of reasoned experience of people whom we believe to have lived a life purified by prayer and penance. Belief, therefore, in prophets or incarnations who have lived in remote ages is not an idle superstition but satisfaction of an inmost spiritual want.
Faith is not a delicate flower which would wither under the slightest stormy weather. Faith is like the Himalaya mountains which can not possibly change. No storm can possibly remove the Himalaya mountains from their foundations....And I want every one of you to cultivate that faith in God.
