"I cured with the
power that came through me. Of course, it was not I who cured, it was the power
from the Outer World, the visions and the ceremonies had only made me like a
hole through which the power could come to the two-leggeds. If I thought that I
was doing it myself, the hole would close up and no power could come through.
Then everything I do would be foolish.”
Elk Oglala Sioux
great fact is just this, and nothing less: That we have had deep and effective
spiritual experiences which have revolutionized our whole attitude toward life,
toward our fellows and toward God's universe. The central fact of our lives
today is the absolute certainty that our Creator has entered into our hearts
and lives in a way which is indeed miraculous. He has commenced to accomplish
those things for us which we could never do by ourselves.

book is meant to be suggestive only. We realize we know only a little. God will
constantly disclose more to you and to us. Ask Him in your morning meditation
what you can do each day for the man who is still sick. The answers will come,
if your own house is in order. But obviously you cannot transmit something you
haven't got. See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great
events will come to pass for you and countless others. This is the Great Fact
Great Spirit help me be
a hole that power comes through from the outer world.
