We Build Consciousness Step By Step

‘I found that we must build our consciousness or faith step by step. When we make certain impressions on our subconscious mind and live for years by those impressions, we cannot expect to destroy them in just a few days. We must patiently substitute constructive, loving, harmonious thoughts for destructive, critical ones. The more you realize your freedom, the happier you become. Faith, joy, health, contentment—you just bubble over with these wonderful attributes and they attract the best people and environment.’

Venice Bloodworth
Teacher of spiritual truth

And if there are plural realities, are some more true or more real than others?’
