It would seem that the faith of a grain of mustard seed would be little faith because a grain of mustard seed is so little. Not so! The grain may be little but the faith is absolute. The mustard seed is aware of one thing only, “I am a grain of mustard seed, here to grow into a flourishing mustard plant.” There are no “if, ands, or buts” about it – no wavering, no doubt. The grain of mustard seed is alive with the conviction that “growing into a flourishing mustard plant is what I will do.” And that’s what it does.
The feeling of absoluteness – that the grain of mustard seed has – is the feeling you want if you intend to make a dream come true. No wavering. No doubt. Just lose yourself in the awareness that it shall be so, until the conviction grows so strong that the world cannot hand you a “No.” You naturally know how to do that. It’s what had you up and walking, talking, reading and writing by age five.
How did you accomplish those marvelous feats by age five?
You acted affectionately – you acted out of the right to succeed with affection for success.
You acted expecting to make mistakes for the sake of learning – act imperfectly frequently and you’ll be acting perfectly quickly.
You act ambitiously – you acted boldly, as best you could, without apology.
It’s time to take action – like that – once again.
