A belief is a preconception about the way reality should be.
Faith is the willingness to experience reality as it is, including acceptance of the unknown.
Faith is a recipe made up of:
•part trust in ourselves
•part experience that life works out
•part intuitive connection with the divine - whatever that is for you
There is a confidence about faith that instills assurance in the faithful.
Faith is the quiet cousin of courage that is willing to put a foot out with no guarantee of a ground to support it.
Without faith we cannot make the most important decisions in life.
To make hard decisions with a soft heart is the essence of faith. When you have faith in yourself, you can make difficult choices with compassion.
Have faith in everything.
Changes in this world
But flowers will open
Just as usual.
