Question: What is the true meaning of faith and how do I have it?

Faith is the extraordinary courage to step away from the known, in order to come in contact with the Unknown; which is God or Love; which becomes you.

This courage comes as a result when an intense aversion for sense experience becomes present in the seeker; and they realize through many trials that what they are seeking can never be found in form. It is from this point of view that one finds them self in a space devoid of all outward seeking; therefore remaining in intense unmanifested stillness and ready to die for It.

Here, Grace strikes; and one must rely solely on the strength of one’s faith or courage to pass through the threshold of the known into the Unknown; which unites the individual with the One.

  1. The thing is this: if we are willing to accept the entirety of what the unknown could be, then we have to be willing to unknow absolutely everything we think is a fact or a truth. While I’m not religious, I am on a beautiful journey with spirituality. So for me, this God we think we know – is limited. I would rather have faith in the unknown – all of it, that means allowing my mind to wonder beyond even those things that seem impossible.
    So I say faith is… Not knowing anything for sure (at all), but still choosing to believe that this is all one extraordinary (and tragic) miracle!

  2. “Intense aversion for sense experience becomes present in the seeker” How truly and clearly this rings once you begin to experience it. Feels as if there was this untapped source of power within you, which you have somehow understood to tap a bit now.
