Go into any bookstore today or look at any magazine rack, and you will find such themes running through the titles as: realizing your potential, the secret of success, the winning formula, the power of positive thinking, developing your self-image and so on. The world knows that there is some great untapped power within a human being, but they don’t know what it is, where it comes from, or how to get it out. King Solomon said that God had placed “eternity” in the hearts of men (Ecclesiastes 3:11), but that they could not understand it. For lack of better understanding, scientists have sometimes referred to this deep inner capacity as the subconscious mind. In fact, it is not the mind at all but the spirit of the man that contains deep inner resources.
