72. Applied faith and actions
Applied faith is factor that gives power to all who apply it. It is a great equalizing force that makes all men equal. Applied faith springs from our own actions and steps that we have already done towards our goals as we look back to them. Faith is supported by some combination of facts or reasonable assumptions of facts. By emptying the mind from all sorts of fears, faith comes. But unlike faith, applied faith does not presupposes a complete mental conviction before we act. This conviction comes just while or after we act.
