An Optimist’s Creed

December 12, 2013

King James Bible
1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

New Living Translation
Great Examples of Faith

1Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.

The structure of the universe is that everything is a part of everything else and each bit has the imprint of the whole.
If that is true then nothing can be 100% negative. There has to be some positive in there somewhere, even in the darkest of situations. Prayer shines a light into the darkness and it becomes easier to find that proverbial silver lining.
What is the Silverlining? It could be anything because there are an infinite number of possibilities or universes that relate to any situation. So you could just make it up, because anything you imagine would have a corresponding possibility or potential universe where it does exist, and you could resonate with or pray your way into the hoped-for possibility. Faith is required as a very important element in the equation. In the west hope and faith have been morphed into something much less substantial than what they used to be in the past. Here is a quote from the King James Bible which is a definition of faith and following that is a modern definition of the quote.
King James Bible
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
New Living Translation
Great Examples of Faith
“Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”
Hope in the Bible means expectation. So if you have faith you have an expectation and you are sure about it. It usually requires effort, but it is well worth it.
So it’s possible to be optimistic no matter what the situation is, it only requires a choice.
