Faith has nothing to do with following systems of beliefs offered by religions. It has everything to do with allowing ourselves to trust in the sacred energy that flows through us.
It is frightening to release the false comfort that our beliefs give us. These beliefs are our connection to the groups that give us an identity. We are afraid that if we give up these beliefs, we will have no identity and will be lost. The opposite is true. Only by giving up what we think we know can we establish a connection to the divine.
Faith gives us the courage to release our firmly held beliefs and surrender to a greater Wisdom. This Wisdom is what we are. We experience it by bringing our attention to the present moment.
Let's have faith that by letting go and surrendering to the void, we will find peace.
