Yes .. faith is exactly like that.. it is that blind trust . where you can walk ahead or stay and still feel safe.. Sounds so safe to be there 🙂
Thanks for stopping by Bjorn.. it truLY FEELS that way to me too.. and yes.. safe to be tHere too.. as no fear is necessary….for sure..:)at least for now……true…..i trust…….
(thought inspired by Claudia’s words)
And truly the ones who create leave a part of their soul behind.. whether it is word.. or song.. or paint of offspring.. or light of night shade.. gone dark.. magically to appear again.. with a twist of left or right…..
So yes.. i told my wife.. that table over there is part of someone’s soul and no.. not just the person who designed IT.. but the person who fastened the wooden leg bolt and was it me or you who did it..
i do not know.. so our souls are all mixed together in all we do and see..:)
My father was a man who had total faith in his God, gave his (working) life to his God – missionary and lay preacher. Despite this, his death was exquisite agony, and in view of this, I asked his preacher friends: Where is God now, what is his plan?
And their response was: He is testing him. And I asked why, and they could not answer, bar the usual platitudes.
I lost my faith then and will never recover it. That said, I am glad you have retained yours. I do so hope your God never lets you down.
i went through an illness that is described as the worst pain known to mankind and in that reality i lost all FEELINGS of faith, hope, belief, LOVE and all other feelings too…for five years….
Truly all i had left was the will of survival of a Lizard.. and i could only vaguely remember being human…
Faith is a gift.. God is gift.. and nothing I ever expect….
That’s why I was never disappointed in what I understand GOD to be that is far removed from the mainstream fundamentalist view of what GOD is…as GOD is Mother Nature true to me.. and no matter what I do.. at least until the day I die.. whether i like it or not there is no escaping the GOD i know as Mother Nature True so i make the best of it..
With what is real.. and the emotion of Faith is one of many i know to be real..again..at least for now.. and both affective and effective in real life.. when the gift is available as it is only grace to me…:)
IN other words I don’t expect GOD to be fair.. as i rule GOD not….:)
That is quite a statement of faith! I agree that the path to God is faith…and faith is the path to God! Wise words today!
Thanks Mary.. this post was actually also inspired by the Movie the Book of Eli.. that is the theme music above as well..per the movie score….
To me that movie describes what faith really is when the rock bottom of life is felt…as well…
And it was also inspired by a community of very logical thinking people who FEEL THAT EMOTIONS are useless.. and particularly faith.. as they consider facts the only reality of life…..
But as i know from not having any emotions for five years with my pain disorder.. there is no reference place for faith for some folks.. who simply have never experienced it but i always still hold out hope that there might be some spark that might take someone else to the other place that for me at least.. is heaven and not hell.. right here on earth…..
Ironic it would be if this was the place called heaven and hell…
And people just don’t realize it’s the same place.. but only the body..mind..heart..soul.. spirit.. and connection with all that is.. that lives it either way…
When I got my emotions back and went back to the community where other folks were missing emotions too..
That was clear as day.. OR NIGHT.. And that’s why i will never give up on them.. as i was there before…..in literal HUMAN HELL..AND truly to me at least.. THAT’S the ‘wrong planet’.
Moving in while you have no idea of what the future holds for you does indeed require faith.
Interesting.. now that you mention it as the future held much power over me much of my life.. but it’s almost like it doesn’t exist now.
And it doesn’t. 🙂
So all is good for now. :)with faith as the natural way.. as far as i see…
Those numbers at the end have me intrigued
Thanks Bryan.. as i’m sure you’ve heard a play on words.. that’s a play on numerology of my own designing.. and really simple too as i just add the digits of date and the 12hr time together and continue the addition if necessary until the numbers come to single digits..
i personally can find the symbolic meaning of the Universe in almost any letter or number alone.. so it’s more than numbers for sure..
as to me truly they are.. ALLONE
as well.. 🙂
faith always shows up with a brother or two me thinks… one being grace, the other deeds…
Most definitely i think so too.. as Faith is more to help folks than for self needs.. and truly always a gift from GOD in Grace and not a guarantee..or with any warrantees as such…:)
Thanks for stopping by Claudia.. and hope you are having a great day.. when that comes your way in Germany..too.. :)!
Faith has that tenacity of creating and perhaps of extending one’s stance on an issue that holds. Not having faith makes one not just vulnerable but uncertain. Wonderful lines and great pics Katie!
True Hank.. and for me it’s not words that increase my faith.. it’s the non-verbal dance with GOD..aka Mother Nature too.. to me…when GOD speaks to me in that way….
Hope you have a great day!..:)
From your photos I get the feeling that you are enjoying your life and are happy. Faith is a gift and an understanding of the nature of God helps as well!
Thanks Cressida de Nova.. yes i am savoring every moment of life and with that happiness naturally comes to me.. and truly an understanding of GOD is the basis of faith to me.. :)yes in grace as gift as well…..
As a younger person, I always belittled the faithful, feeling that to have faith one had to wave their flag of ignorance, but as the decades clicked off, & I began to study, to project, to meditate, to write poetry, certain Zen & metaphysical theorem began to resonate with me, & the Gnostic gospels filled in the some gaps, & like so many before me, I found a belief system pounded firmly into exorcism of fear, & comfort with my relationship to/with AllThatIs; hey, I love the fact that you expressed so much in only 130 words this time; congrats on having faith in your own words & thoughts.
It seems to me that many folks ‘think’ that faith is simply believing something with no scientific facts to back it up.
And perhaps it is exercised that way for many people as well.
Yes to me faith is removing the fear from one’s life through trust in the eyes of all that is, too.
And yes there is more when this faith becomes generated stronger in practice as some folks meditate still, but for me my meditation is in movement and rarely breath or chants.
When the balance of being comes i can find complete inner peace per bliss in a Rave dance hall full of 200 screaming 20 somethings.
And some think i’m doing some kind of fancy slow motion dance with my body, but truly I am walking on rice paper. 🙂
Or they assume drugs of course and ironically I’m likely the only totally sober 21 AND plus person there. 😉
I was born with a condition described as hyperlexia and being concise in any type of output of communication where I’m really trying to explain something deeper in life has always been a greatest challenge and I guess it’s because there are so many thoughts running through my head once the stimulation for thought is turned on. It can be described as cocktail speech as well. Stuttering was a substantial problem in early years too.
But as they practice.. practice.. practice.. and change will come when it’s ready.
Poetry and prose and the dance of life in general i no longer try to push.
But i do practice extremely hard.
When it’s ready it comes in whatever form for and from me. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day Glenn. 🙂
Wonderful photos, particularly of your wife and the puss. Interesting thoughts on Faith, as well–you’re lucky to have found your Faith.
Thanks for dropping by VB.. and glad you enjoyed the photos and yes i feel very fortunate to have found faith in life…
Have a great night!..:)
