Sedona, Arizona

What is faith?  Faith is trust. We trust that if we surrender our belief systems, which define who we think we are, we will be in harmony with Universal Intelligence and fulfill our life's purpose, rather than descend into a pit of fear and despair.

It is called faith because no words can convince us of this Truth.  There is no scientific evidence which will prove it (although they are getting close!).  No teacher can adequately describe it.  However, someone who is awake can create an energy field of Presence.

We must take the leap and experience it to see the truth of it.  When we sincerely try it, we immediately glimpse a different reality.  Our interactions with people change.  We no longer feel a need to be defensive.  We listen without thinking of what we want to say next.  Our anger, fear, loneliness, and frustration start to lessen.  Peace, love and joy begin to permeate our being.

The more we do it, the more evidence we see of it and the stronger our faith becomes.  It is like a muscle that gets stronger with exercise.  Faith becomes a habit (a good one!).

Let's have faith to surrender to the Void.

The Choice

Cape Reinga, New Zealand

The most important choice we will ever make is whether we will continue our lives of fear, frustration and obsessive thinking about the past and the future, or live mindfully in the present moment.  There is nothing that we have to learn, accomplish or achieve to awaken.  No obstacles need to be overcome.  No training is required.

In fact, if we make the choice to live in harmony with Universal Intelligence, we can become enlightened in this very moment.

It seems too simple.  If it was so simple, why wouldn't we all be awakened masters?  The answer is that we are not aware that the choice is ours and the process is so simple.  We have hypnotized ourselves into thinking that following our belief systems is the only way to live.  The web of thought and belief is so thick, that we do not know there is another way.

If we choose to surrender our thoughts in this very moment, with the strong resolve that is necessary to repel the relentless pull of compulsive thinking, we will be in harmony with the flow of life, We will be fulfilled because we are living our true purpose. We will know peace.

Let's choose freedom.
