So, as I read that last night, I looked around to find a book. The closest to me was Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Not exactly the book to check in with for your love life!
Page 45: Faith is the head chemist of the mind.
Ok…so I need to have faith. I need to stop over thinking and start believing. I am there. I am ready.
In fact, that whole page is perfectly fit for anyone’s love life.
FAITH is the head chemist of the mind. When FAITH is blended with the vibration of thought, the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration, translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.
The emotions of FAITH, LOVE, and SEX are the most powerful of all the major positive emotions. When the three are blended, they have the effect of “coloring” the vibration of thought in such a way that it instantly reaches the subconscious mind, where it is changed into its spiritual equivalent, the only form that induces a response from Infinite Intelligence.
Love and faith are psychic; related to the spiritual side of man. Sex is purely biological, and related only to the physical. The mixing, or blending, of these three emotions has the effect of opening a direct line of communication between the finite, thinking mind of man, and Infinite Intelligence.
