We must become as little children. How we long for a return of that simple trust in life which children have. In their minds there are no doubts. They have not yet been told that they are sinners, destitute of Divine Guidance and spiritual life. The life of a child is lived in natural goodness. The Divine is natural goodness. The prison walls of false experience soon build themselves into barriers, shutting out the light, and the child grows into adulthood, often losing her sense of that inner Guide, leading her footsteps aright.
We must return the way we came. As little children, who know that life is good and to be trusted. We are to approach our problems as though they were not. Approaching them in this manner, they will vanish.
Let not the materialists deny us this right, nor the unbelieving cast any reflection of blindness before our eyes. There is a wisdom and a power not of the flesh, which springs perennially from the inner life - all powerful and all wise.
