LSB: excerpt ~ 148

You are beginning to comprehend the vitality of your thoughts; how they will race and clash and tire the orderly rhythm of one’s living, day and night. Thoughts can seize and fasten onto the consciousness. Now take boldly the role of commander; calm these unruly soldiers in your company by commands, by great words of spiritual intent. As you were warned, do not go down with the stream but remain at the source, the source within you. Be the eternal spring.
… say to yourself: I will seek the Spirit and hold myself at the source. … I will not be delayed in the treadmill of human negative thought. I will escape all useless mental anxiety. Lean, lean on thy strong reassuring inner self, realizing that in obedience, G*D’s will is done to the end of time. Nothing is too small, nothing too large. … the kingdom of all peace and power is within you. Stay — and advance!
As you have been told before, try dissolving your universe into spiritual and mental concepts; consider yourself a feeling that has been led about by the events of your time.
Character is, in the last analysis, a collection of feelings. A good man is a trust-feeling. If you dissolve all people to thought and examine your own thought as you carry it about you will see with greater clarity how destructive it is to be a Fear. If you are a Fear, you at once become a vortex which attracts to you currents of obstacles and blocking.
But if you are a Confidence going though the unseen, as your true world really is, if you are a spirit of courage — calm, and loving — you act like a sun on all about you and grateful faces will turn to you as you touch the creative impulse everywhere. It is a simple as this.
Guard yourself from (negative emotional) states and when you find yourself sinking into one and you stand before the walls of your Jericho, blow your silver bugle and your clear note of prayer will be heard. Great and good forces are your companions; you do not walk alone.
Genesis 1 G*D created man (i.e. humanity) in His image, male and female He created them. G*D blessed them. G*D saw all that had been made, and indeed, it was very good. It was evening and it was morning of the sixth day.
Psalms 23:
{1} The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 
{2} He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, and leadeth me beside still waters;
{3} He restoreth my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake. 
{4} Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for Thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
{5} Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou has anointed my head with oil; My cup runneth over.
{6} Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of life and i shall dwell in the House of the LORD forever.
1st Corinthians 13:
Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one.
Love is never boastful or conceited, nor rude, never selfish, not quick to take offense.
Love keeps no scores of wrongs; does not gloat over another’s sins, but delights in the truth.
There is nothing that love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and its endurance.
In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope and love; but the greatest of them all is love.
