On Having Faith In …

Faith has strange mystical qualities to it that aren’t readily noticeable at first.
  • cannot think for itself:
  • does not have a consciousness.
  • will do what it does and where it is directed to do it, by it’s beholder.
  • will do whatever it is directed to do faithfully; after all, that is its job.
  • is blind.
So this business of having faith is as much a matter of where you place it, as it is a matter of having some. If you have faith in something unreal or something unhealthy, then you will feed the unreality or the lack of health and your faith will actually turn into a vehicle that works against your process of awakening while you appear to be making every effort to awaken.
  • Faith in something must be examined with great regularity. Just what the frequency of regularity is, will determine your future more so then having faith in the first place.
  • Note: as you examine this newfound faith you may notice your own self-centered motives at play under the thinly veiled guise of faith and spirituality. Creative selfishness.
  • The knack to the whole thing is to have some faith and then take direction from the experience of risking having that faith in the first place; then applying that wisdom and understanding gleaned from the risk taking and applying that into wisdom of your next moment.
  • Then be prepared to either make change happen, or accept change as it happens to you.
  • This is difficult, because the factors that the Ego used to make judgment calls about life and change are now absent.
  • Faith doesn’t have fear, hate, distrust, like, or dislike. In fact those feelings hinder the process of faith.
