Faith Over Fear
A motto I learned from a man who was my adopted big brother more than 30 years ago. Time has passed and much has changed but the love in my heart and motto remained. Then tonight under the moon I found a much deeper meaning to that which has already given me so much peace and insight.
It is about Divine Faith, not just faith the way many think of and confuse with hope. But deep spiritual faith, belief, understanding that you have in your bones. That is the type of sweet serene faith you have when your best friend walks away after 30+ years that it was divine intervention for a reason, a purpose to make space for something larger in your life that they just couldn't be present for. We don't need to understand the reason fully although we have a burning desire to understand or make sense of it.
When the divine steps in, everything shakes loose. Do you remember what you asked for? Now do you remember that things rarely look like the way you envisioned it in your head? Right! So, the faith that everything is exactly as it is for a reason, we learn to embrace more readily for the lessons we asked for, the growth and the love.
Every time I see the shit start to roll down I open my heart further seeking my faith to rise above my fear. Fear can be paralyzing. Do you avoid opening the envelope you dread or do you open the letter from the IRS telling you you owe them $25,000.00 and use your faith to ask questions, get some answers and help?
I personally am working on unshakable faith, don't get me wrong, I ain't there yet. But deepening your faith and connection with your god(s) or goddess(es) is a deep and meaningful first step. This is not to say you don't ever have doubts or they it is easy, but the more you do to deepen your relationship with yourself and your diety, to a place which creates a sanctuary within you, this is what you want to create.
Faith over Fear.
