God is within and around me, protecting me, so I shall banish the gloom of fear that shuts out His guiding light and makes me stumble into ditches of error.
With the veil of Divine Mother’s peace, I shall wipe away the dream-fears of disease, sadness, and ignorance from the soul’s face of silence. Teach me to be tenaciously and cautiously courageous instead of being afraid.
I am protected behind the battlements of my good conscience. Today I will burn the faggots of worries and fear, and kindle the fire of happiness to illumine God’s temple within.
