Example text

Life is not something evil, neither is it liable to go wrong at any time if we do not prevent it by strain and effort. Life is just the reverse of this. Life is good: it is the outcome of Love, and as always trying to bring good to us, if we will only allow it to do so. Countless thousands must have worried themselves into their graves through this misunder- standing about life. Having read evil into everything, they expect evil to come to them, and what they have expected has come upon them. Fearing calamities at every turn of the road, they have suffered as much as they would have done if the calamities had really appeared, or even more so, for suspense is harder to bear than the actual calamity itself.

He is now taught to relax to the cause of annoy- 33 HENRY THOMAS HAMBLIN THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT ance instead of resisting it. When he does so his suffering ceases. Christ taught trust and rest in the love of the Father. He tells us to take no anxious thought about the morrow, neither to be anxious about supply of the necessary and good things of life. Why does our Lord speak thus? Simply because He knows that all is well, in reality, and that everything works together for good if we will only allow it to do so.

We have not to perfect our life: we have only to allow God’s perfect plan to be carried out, in every action of our life. ’’ 44 HENRY THOMAS HAMBLIN THE LIFE OF THE SPIRIT Chapter 18 THE WAY OF LIFE III — THE Spiritual life is one long series of surrenderings to the Will of God, and nonresistance to so-called evil. Because our life is planned by God, it is therefore good, and all experiences are helps on the way. It is a great day for us when we realize that nothing can come to us that is not good and that all the experiences of life are spiritual, designed by Infinite Wisdom and Love to help us on our heavenly pathway.
