39 — WATCH lest, when you perceive that the spiritual structure you are building seems to depend for its continued support upon a spiritual sense in you which seems too frail, immature and intangible to maintain it, you permit fear and doubt to cause you to believe that this spiritual sense has been smothered, or is likely to be. In reality man’s desire for God, and his ability to find Him and to reflect Him, are qualities which materiality can never impair. The error is wholly a trick of deception, that claims to blind one as to where to find God, and as to the nature of the error that claims to hide Him. The argument that our spiritual nature has been or can be smothered is a trick of animal magnetism. Is the reflecting power of a mirror impaired by the dust that falls on it?
