were having trouble with personal relationships, we
couldn't control our emotional natures, we were a prey
to misery and depression, we couldn't make a living,
we had a feeling of uselessness, we were full of fear,
we were unhappy, we couldn't seem to be of real help
to other people…. When we saw others solve their
problems by a simple reliance upon the Spirit of the
Universe, we had to stop doubting the power of God.
Our ideas did not work. But the God idea did."
