“It is a proven fact that no two things can occupy the same space at the same time. This theory applies to the mind and heart of human beings. Where there is trust there can be no doubt. . . doubt stems from our beliefs, many of which hinge on our thoughts and feelings of unworthiness. . .
"We attract into our lives that which we focus upon with the strongest intent. Unfortunately, most of us do not monitor our thoughts, and therefore have no idea of what we are thinking most of the time. . . The moment a seed of doubt becomes imbedded in our thoughts, we can become so preoccupied with fixing what has apparently gone wrong that our thoughts shift from the desired outcome. We are now focused intently on ensuring that nothing goes wrong. Forestalling wrong, rather than desired intent, becomes the focus. . .
"Constant prayer and affirmation are the strongest defenses against doubt. . .
"When we expect to be guided and protected and to receive the benefits of Divine Will, we can expect the results of all endeavors to be favorable.”
