“Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible.” – Corrie Ten Boom
We all have faith power; it just needs to be awakened so that we can move forward with complete faith in ourselves. In this summary, you will learn how to awaken this power. Today, we will learn about the book Awaken the Power of Fatih, written by Spiritual Guru Sirshree. This book is also available in Hindi by the name of Vishwas Niyam. In this book, Sir Shree explains that if you believe in yourself, how can you make that belief real?
So, let’s start this book summary with a story.
There was a person who was very fond of travelling. All his life, he just wanted to travel. While roaming like this, once he felt that perhaps now he has wandered everywhere in the world, only walking in the desert is left.
So he made up his mind and reached a desert. He had been roaming in the desert for 2 to 3 days; all his food and water had run out, and now he wanted to get out of that desert. But he had come far ahead in the desert, so there was no way to escape.
He had heard about the desert and how many people died in that desert due to a lack of food and water. Now, even he had run out of food and water. He felt that perhaps he would also be killed like this, and because of this, his nervousness increased.
In such a situation, when he looked around, there was neither a house nor an animal, and no human was being far and wide. There was only sand all around him.
Then, he saw a hand pump in the distance. He ran to that hand pump with the energy left in his body and reached there. He started running that hand pump, but even after running it for a long time, the water did not come out, and he sat down helplessly. But then his eyes fell on a water bottle lying nearby, which was only half filled with water, and it was written on it,
“Put this water in that hand pump; drink as much water as you want.”
Now, this situation was very challenging for that man. He was in dire need of water because he had a bottle that had half water inside. Either he can drink that water or put it in a hand pump. Pouring water in a hand pump is not less than a risk. If the hand pump does not run even after pouring water into the hand pump, then even half a bottle of water will go out of his hand, and he may die of thirst. One can drink as much water as possible if water is available from the hand pump.
Many questions started coming into that man’s mind. If the water is not poured, the people who come after him will also have to face this challenge and should refrain from flowing water. He thought, if I don’t run it today by taking risks, how will people trust the help of others?
So, remembering this, he put half a bottle of water in his hand pump and started running the hand pump, relying on what was written on that bottle. His hard work paid off, and the water came. He first drank water to his heart’s content and then filled his bottle and jug with water. Finally, fill the bottle with half water and write, “You can trust this bottle.
Like a bottle, the author says faith is already present inside us humans; it just needs to be awakened. Faith is not such a thing, found only in a specific person or group of people, but faith is present in every human being.
Faith or belief is what you have been told, heard, or accepted somewhere. With time, the more knowledge we take, the more our beliefs change.
For example, earlier, we had faith that there was only one planet near the Earth, but after gaining knowledge and exploring more things, we learned that there are many planets apart from Earth.
Now comes the ILLUSORY REALITY. It means such a reality that you have created with your thinking. In Illusory Reality, we believe to be the reality of what we want to see because of which, many times, it removes us from the absolute truth.
You can understand Illusory Reality like a lens where the things your mind wants to see become bigger and other things seem less valuable in comparison. Because of this, you can often watch your favourite life and not be aware of the reality. When reality hits you, you can’t handle yourself. The author says this is why most people are unhappy and unsuccessful because they run away from reality.
You should never run away from reality. You should at least know what the truth is. Sometimes, this Illusory Reality also proves to be true. Like, we know that money is an essential tool; money is necessary for good health and relationships.
Now, this is a truth we will first believe; that is, we will have faith, and then with real-life experiences related to that faith, this faith will become stronger with time and become a belief. Which at that time will be accepted as the straight truth without doubt. If you believe in this faith and create an Illusory Reality where you imagine yourself as wealthy and keep working hard, you will become rich.
Because both your Belief and Illusory Reality are correct in this case, both will work in your favour. But if you accept wrong things as beliefs, you can earn money only by doing bad things in life, or no one benefits by doing good things. This is false faith; if you believe it to be accurate and create your Illusory Reality on top of it, then you will see what you want to see. You will start noticing ways to earn happiness and wealth from evil deeds. Foul deeds will be more visible, and good deeds will be hidden.
Belief creates a picture of ourselves in our subconscious mind, which we know as “I”, like “I am the person who will get ahead” or “I am the person who will be successful in life”. If you make believe by seeing the right thing, you will be successful. But if you make believe by seeing wrong things to keep your mind, then you can also fail, so it is essential to recognize what is right and false belief.
The author says that there is a lot of power in our beliefs. If someone asks me what differentiates a successful and unsuccessful person? There is only one difference between Beliefs. A successful person believes that he will be successful, and that’s why he becomes successful. An unsuccessful person doubts that he may not be successful, and that’s why he is unsuccessful today.
The author gives a tip for making personal beliefs. You see or read about those people or listen to those you want to be like. By doing this, you will be able to understand their mindset and make your mindset the same.
By doing this, you will not have to take the advice of many people. Following only those people and applying the learned methods will strengthen your belief. Remember, follow only those people who have those results or are moving towards getting the results you want. And once your belief becomes strong, like successful people, no one can stop you from being successful.
Since childhood, some useless beliefs have been instilled in us by our parents, friends, people around us, and the media; by being influenced by those beliefs, we take similar actions and get the same results. Most people never try to question such ideas in life. Never question themselves that if something has been told, why has it been told? Is it useful for us in today’s time?
Like usually, in middle-class families, children are told since childhood that they are middle-class people and that no matter how hard they work, they will never be able to become rich. In such a situation, 90% of the people, without using their ability, sit considering this as truth.
At the same time, 10% of people remove this belief from their minds and start believing in the things to become rich, making them wealthy and successful. To live a successful and happy life, you must ask questions about your beliefs and see if they are right for you, helpful for your happiness and growth or not.
Once you identify all the limiting beliefs in your mind, replacing them with supportive thoughts becomes more accessible. Doing this lets you relax your mind and create new strategies to move forward. Think this way so that the next time a negative thought comes to your mind, immediately remove it and assure yourself that you do not need any negative and are moving forward happily with positive beliefs.
Faith is the power that transforms our belief into reality. When you accept something without any doubt, it becomes a belief. As Jesus says, if you have thought, break a mountain and throw it in the sea, and you do not have any doubt, you will do it. Many people need help understanding the real power of their faith. If you believe in yourself, then everything is easy to achieve. With strong faith, more than half of the doubts disappear automatically. You can use your full potential.
For example, you have some money and can invest it in two places. The first option is to fund half the money in both areas, invest more in one place and less in another, or invest the money in only one place. Similarly, our faith is also like an asset.
Whether you invest in believing things that increase positive energy or invest in negative energy, it is your choice. Investing in positive energy increases happiness and power; investing in negative energy will lead to unhappiness and backwardness. That’s why trust in things that increase positive energy. For this, it is necessary to understand the belief function.
- As are the beliefs, so are the feelings.
- As are the feelings, so are the actions.
- As is the step, so are the results.
- And as are the results, so are the faith that develops.
As you believe, you will feel as if you think for yourself. If you think positive, you will feel positive. As are the feelings, so are the actions. Feeling good inspires us to take positive action, and negative thinking influences us to take adverse steps. In this way, our feeling has a significant impact on our activity. As is the action, so is the result.
Doing suitable activities like daily exercise strengthens the muscles, and you will remain active throughout the day. And as is our result, so the faith develops. This means that the trust in those actions increases once taking action gives positive results. Next time, we will work twice as hard with more confidence. By working with negative feelings, the impact would also be harmful, and you would be unable to trust those actions fully.
Our faith develops in two ways. Negative Faith Cycle and Positive Faith Cycle
Let’s understand the Negative Faith Cycle. The football match is happening between 2 teams. One is Team A, and the other is Team B. The city where the game was being played is the hometown of Team A, and because it is the hometown of Team A, most people are cheering for Team A. Now, the match is at such a point where Team A is ahead, and Team B is behind.
Try imagining this scenario in your mind. Both teams started the match with the same belief that they would win the game. But now, because one team has gone ahead, the other group thinks we will lose today.
This is the beginning of the negative faith cycle, where they start feeling that they will lose. Now, the negative faith cycle started in the other team’s mind, where gradually, their motivation started coming down.
Although the other team still had a chance to win, their belief or faith to win weakened, so their performance worsened. When they accepted defeat, they started feeling like a loser, the effect of which showed in the form of poor performance, and that team lost the match.
Now, let’s understand the Positive Faith Cycle. Now think about Team A, which was slowly dominating Team B and was winning continuously. Due to this, their motivation increased more; they became excited and started feeling more happy.
Due to this, their performance started getting better. Although they also missed many goals, believing in victory, they bounced back and controlled the match. Having scored a goal this way strengthened their confidence again; they felt motivated and took positive action from positive feelings. And the result was that they won the match.
Both teams started with the same belief that they could win. But despite this later, Team B lost. Not because they didn’t have faith but because their faith turned from positive to negative. At the same time, Team A maintained its positive belief of winning throughout the match and won.
Whatever we hear, see, and experience from childhood becomes like the seeds of our faith. We tend to believe our feelings and thoughts to the extent that they become our reality. Every thought we agree with, every thought we feel comfortable with – be it good or bad, knowingly or unknowingly, we take action based on that belief.
Children who see their parents helping others unconditionally, knowingly or unknowingly grow up developing a helping nature in themselves. When they are in a situation where someone around them needs help, they are quick to help. Because they grew up with the seed of that faith, they have heard their parents say, “You should be kind and helpful to people.” they have seen their parents helping people. So, when they grow up, they do not doubt that faith but happily accept it.
Another example is children who grow up watching their parents struggle financially. Usually, there is a shortage and negative talk about money in their house, so knowingly or unknowingly, their mind gets filled with negative feelings about money. For example, “we don’t have everything we need”, “life isn’t easy”, and “living life with the things we want is not easy”.
These things become the seeds of faith for them. Until they try to change their feelings and beliefs, they will likely remain poor and struggle for the rest of their lives. They need to change their flawed assumptions and believe in getting rich to break free from their reality.
Children whose parents are wealthy grow up believing that making money is easy. The necessary resources are always available to achieve the desired goal; you must find and use them. Because of this belief, children with such a mindset have more chances of becoming wealthy. So the lesson is that to get wealth, happiness and success, identify your beliefs about money, happiness and success and sow the seeds of positive thoughts within you.
Some people feel that they still need to get the desired results even after sowing the right seeds of faith. This is because there needs to be more firmness in their faith. Your mind should be unconditional and unshakeable about your work to get the desired results. Your faith should be so strong that no one can mislead you. For example, to move forward in your corporate career.
You must continue looking for the next job due to rejection. It would help if you came to work hard again with confidence, even after repeated denials. You have to work hard repeatedly because things will always arrive at once. In the initial days, whatever work you do, you have to be ready to move forward while learning by facing rejection and defeat.
Many thoughts come to our minds throughout the day. By now, you know that every idea is a seed of belief. But does every thought deserve to stay in your mind? No! Keep only those ideas in your mind that support strengthening your positive faith. Refrain from wasting your time on useless ideas because, with such statements, you cannot focus on the critical work.
Be conscious about the ideas that come to your mind. Keep repeating the concepts related to faith in your mind to bring them into reality. Because what we pay attention to always grows. For example, if you want to be successful in business, you should take the idea of success as something other than just a standard idea.
Instead, special attention should be paid to that idea. You have to pay full attention to that idea and go into the depth of that idea so that it can be made stronger.
The second most important thing is our feelings. The mind of us humans is made so that we can concentrate only on those things which connect us with good feelings. Our subconscious mind goes to those ideas first. These ideas start becoming a reality in real life.
Therefore, to grow the seed of faith strongly, associate positive emotions with it. Feel positive as you think about what you want, with a firm intention. In this way, if you repeatedly show your attention to your faith, it will automatically become a strong thought and inspire you to take action to make that thought real.
For example, a child likes to play football, but the parents want to play him cricket and are motivating him to play cricket again and again; the child is not listening to the parents and is still playing football. The parents also took him to the cricket ground, but even there, the child started playing with the children on the football ground.
This is because the child feels good playing football, which brings positive thoughts about football into his mind, making him feel good and inspiring him to act, i.e., play football. That’s why no matter how much the parents force him to play cricket, he will only play football. Something similar happens in our real life as well.
When you have negative thoughts about the things you want in your life, that thing starts going away because the negative review brought into your mind prevents it from becoming a reality. Your mind will not want to do that work, and you will not be able to do the necessary hard work, the result of which can also be found in the form of failure.
Therefore, it is essential to believe in positive faith for the same thing so that it can suppress that negative faith, strengthen the positive belief, and take necessary action for its goal. For example, if you want to become rich but all the time you believe and worry about the lack of money, you will not be able to see opportunities to earn more money, resulting in you having to live on less money. That’s why it is essential that you believe in the ideas related to your desired results and do not deviate from those ideas.
By now, you have learned how sowing the seeds of faith bears fruit. Also, making your faith firm makes it easy to achieve the goal. Now, ask yourself, are you trying to change your life significantly? Are you trying to achieve results that seem impossible or magical today? So, to make them real, start trusting the things you get from today. Plant it, nurture it, make it strong, and soon you will see it blossoming in your life.
Whatever has been built, is being built, and will be built in the world, already exists in the minds of the people who created its images, who imagined it with faith like Apple Company was created later for the world but already created by Steve Jobs. Similarly, Microsoft software came later in front of the people but was already made in the mind of Bill Gates. Like these people, immense possibilities are hidden in your imagination, too. The things you see with your own eyes today result from a person’s imagination.
So, when you encounter negativity or limitation, face rejection, or meet a troubling situation that demands more effort than your potential, remember that you have infinite possibilities in the unseen world. This truth will increase your awareness and support you in finding ways to make ideas real.
Every person wants to make life extraordinary. For which he thinks all day long. But only some people make it real. This is because they believe in the right thing at the right time. Many times, due to the ups and downs of life, they deviate from the necessary faith, so to remember them, the author asks to make a Faith Fair Book.
For this, write your positive faith or ideas in one place. Doing this will strengthen your faith in those things. For this, you can make a small diary where you write your essential beliefs throughout the day and read it once a week. By doing this, you will become more clear about your positive thoughts.
Each of us has a mindset of our values and purpose; for clarity about it, it is necessary to write all these in the Faith Fair Book. While writing your Faith Fair Book, keep in mind that this Faith Fair Book is the source of making your faith genuine, in which you write your beliefs with complete confidence, which you want to make real, so that what you wish to – Sow seeds.
Therefore, write the Faith Fair Book neutrally without considering whether you can make faith real. When you write Faith Fair Book with neutral confidence, you will experience miraculous changes in your life.
Write your long-term goals in the Faith Book and keep looking at them occasionally. According to the long-term plan, make short-term goals. Face the challenges during this journey, and remember that they will not change your long-term goals and beliefs.
