By humble prayer and aspiration one may attract that kind of Grace from the Overself which manifests as a power to heal those in unhappy states of mind, bad nervous conditions, and emotional unbalance. But first, he must work on himself and develop the requisite poise, strength, and wisdom from within. The intensity of devotion to the Divine, the desire to be used as a channel for it to others, and the faith which carries on with the Quest through both dark and bright circumstances, moods, or times--these things are equally necessary to such self-cultivation.
