Even as the elemental power which in nature manifests itself as lightning can be bound and stored in metals and containers—a force that can be put to use when harnessed and controlled— so can the energy of will that has been formed by faith be bound within material objects.

In all religious cults, among all nations, you will encounter human faith in certain holy objects, believed to be endowed with sacred powers.

You scoff at such belief and call it “superstition.”

If here you only have in mind the fables that have overgrown such objects like a clinging vine, then you may not be in error; however, guard against disdaining the reality concealed behind such things.

ANY OBJECT you imbued with will, its power well defined by faith, becomes indeed a “talisman.” The virtue of such talismans you often have experienced, although you did not realize what rendered them effective, nor would have in your dreams suspected that you in fact surround yourself with “charms.”

To be sure, the object in itself is but the vessel holding and preserving a dynamic force that is by nature free, but which has now been bound within that object.

The object does not of itself possess that inner force.

Your faith had formed the power of your will, and then conveyed it, as a rule without your knowing, to the vessel in which it is preserved until it shall be spent.

You continue to “recharge” that object with new faith, although you may not see it as a talisman.

Any object you employ in order to assure success in one endeavor or another, although that object is not, strictly speaking, needed for your task, is actually a talisman; even though, as an “enlightened” mind you would deride it as a superstition if you were told of people who employ such objects consciously, certain that they can rely on their effect.

Such people are aware of what they do, only you act without knowing.

IT IS THE same with any image representing God.

Be it the fetish in the dwelling of the primitive, or the majestic statue of Athena.

Be it the painting of a saint revered within the towering cathedral, or the wonder-working triptych in the ancient cloister.

All these are vessels, holding the collected inner energies of countless people who had formed their will by faith and had been able to implant that will into the object of their worship. Even the pathetic physical remains, the relics of some holy person, whether genuine or spurious, may serve believers in that way.

The faith of those believing in these objects then becomes the key that will in turn release the energies contained in them.

Consequently, no one can release such powers who does not believe in them; for only faith creates the high degree of tension in the currents of your will that can impel the well-defined, accumulated energies of other wills to flow into your own and, thus united, function as you will.
