How to increase faith in myself and in the Divine?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Forget about it!

Don’t try to increase faith. Wanting to increase faith is the problem. Know that you have as much as you need.

However big is your cup, that much is already there. Relax, and you’ll find your cup is full. You can’t hold more than the capacity of your cup.

Many times people ask me to give them blessings. I tell them, 'My blessings are always there! But you have to look at your capacity to receive. If you come to me with a small cup and say you want 10 liters of milk in this, how is it possible? You should carry a can which can hold 10 liters. You can’t have 10 liters in a teacup.'

So increase your capacity. And that will keep happening automatically when you say, 'I have enough faith'. Don’t say, 'I don’t have faith'. You have enough faith.
