Today’s exercise is not for the lazy. It’s not for the people who are afraid to face their own thoughts and views. It’s not for people who are scared to spread their wings for the fear of falling. But if you are not afraid or lazy, if you are open to knowing yourself a little better, and closer to being your authentic self then do this exercise.
It is invisible. It is intangible. But it is.
What is faith? Faith is belief – in something or someone without needing any evidence or promises.
You could have faith in God, in religion, or in nature. You could have faith in your spouse, in your parents, or in your children. You could faith in your friends. What does this faith tell you? Usually, when we have faith, we believe that wherever we’ve placed our faith, in whoever or whatever, wishes the best for us.
But how do we come to this faith? Is this simply a matter of love, or it is a matter of previous evidence? Or perhaps the case of faithful until proven unfaithful?
What about divine faith? Is that a case of religious upbringing, or a result of personal experiences?
It is the question of faith I want you pounder in your journal today. Who or what do you have faith in?
Do you have faith in God? In religion? How did you come about this faith? Does your faith waver?
Do you have faith in people? Which people? Why these people?
Have you lost faith in someone that you previously believed in? What happened? Does this weaken your faith in others?
