Emerson on Spiritual Laws

Belief and love-- a believing love will relieve us of a vast load of care. Oh my brothers, God exists. There is a soul at the center of nature and over the will of every man, so that non of us can wrong the universe. It has so infused its strong enchantment into nature that we prosper when we accept its advice; and when we struggle to wound its creatures, our hands are glued to our sides, or they beat our own breasts.

The whole course of things goes to teach us faith. We need only obey. There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening we shall hear the right word... Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which flows into you as life, place yourself in the full center of that flood, then you are without effort impelled to truth, to right, and a perfect contentment.

~ From Ralph Waldo Emerson's Essay on Spiritual Laws
