Hope is the doorway to belief. Belief is the doorway to knowing. Knowing is the doorway to creation. Creation is the doorway to experience. Experience is the doorway to expression. Expression is the doorway to becoming. Becoming is the activity of all Life and the only function of God.
What you hope, you will eventually believe. What you believe, you will eventually know. What you know, you will eventually create. What you create, you will eventually experience. What you experience, you will eventually express. What you express, you will eventually become.
This is the formula for all of life. It is as simple as that.
— Neale Donald Walsch (from Home with God, ’06)
