Faith should not be confused with delusion. It is faith that allows you to take action towards something with whole-heartedness – but it is delusion that gives you a sense of certainty when reality is showing you otherwise. Having faith doesn’t delude me into thinking that something is a sure case – no way. Faith just keeps me on track – guides me back when things seem impossible – keeps me centred, grounded and focused when things seem to be going right. Faith keeps me going until the end.
Faith also allows you to rest – have a break, allow things to percolate. If you truly held faith in your vision, then there would be no need to Go! Go! Go! No need to force, push or manipulate. True faith opens you up to the wisdom in the moment – sometimes it’s true to have a break and time to take a breather.
The song that connects me to faith is ‘Over at the Frankenstein Place’ from the famous Rocky Horror Picture Show. They sing --- There's a light, light in the darkness of everybody's life. To me, that’s faith.
When someone says, “Have Faith” – they are really saying, GO FOR IT, KEEP GOING & DO YOUR BEST. So, I say to you – have faith that your vision is worth it. That if you persist and keep going – something amazing will be revealed to you. To a real love, a real succumbing, to something that you could not have conceived of – but is also utterly blissful and life-giving. This cannot be achieved or understood, only in hindsight, you need to pass through to the end – that’s why you need faith.
