GOD ONLY HELP THOSE THAT HELP THEMSELVES
How many times a day do you ever think about Divinity? You don’t. You would rather think of the dinner you are going to cook or the clothes you are going to wear or the work you have to do today. You don’t think of Divinity at all.
The only time you think of God is when you are in trouble. You say, “Oh, God, please help me.” He won’t, that’s for sure! He will tell you, “Help yourself.” And therefore, the old saying which we know so well, “God only helps those that help themselves.”
This really means that you are activating that divine energy to help yourself to bring the calmness into your mind, and by bringing calmness into your mind your anxieties disappear.
