Para-Gram by Parmahansa Yogananda
Faith is the intuitive experience of all truth and the meditation-born conviction that we are made in the omnipotent, all-knowing, all-seeing image of God. Faith is an innate quality of the soul, but in ordinary human beings it is latent. It has to be awakened, nurtured, and brought into full manifestation by deep meditation which brings conscious contact with one's soul, and hence with God. One who has faith in the divinity of his own soul, his true nature, and who has love for God and faith in His omnipotence finds quick freedom from suffering caused by past evil actions. The light of faith ushers his consciousness from the dark realm of mortal limitation into the kingdom of immortality of our one Father, God.
