Each of us has a big piece of good news deep within ourselves. Such good news is the fact that with God’s help we have what it takes to meet all tough, challenging, upsetting situations and to react creatively to them. The Gospel is God’s good news to the world. But, our divine heritage, inherent talents, light of Christ and creative mind able to receive frequencies of faith is the good news inside everyone from before birth.

Some might say, “you don’t know my situation, you can’t really understand,” and even declare quiet heatedly. “This reaction is understandable and deserving of sympathy. However, such an attitude can never be valid, for people who develop the spiritual mind know the good news within themselves and have developed the principles to support them in an upsetting situation. They do not panic and act intelligently and in a controlled manner.” ibid, pg. 138
