Why Faith?!

Why Faith?!

Do you have to be spiritual to have faith? Do you have to believe in some form of deity in order to believe in yourself? Does a specific dogma need to guide you to listen, first and foremost to that still, small voice within? Is faith the father of that voice that can cause you to run away from some people; yet, have the wisdom to hold on to others? Is the persistent pursuit of a passion, no matter what, because of faith? Do you have to have morals in order to be faithful? Or, can you just simply “know” the truth of who you are and who you came to be? I don’t know…. I just know that I couldn’t live without faith.

The Leap of Truth

The Leap of Truth

A wise man told me that sometimes we try to leap over the puddles in life, but, land right inside the puddle. One foot is reaching and poised for the leap, while the other remains firmly planted in my limited vision of what is, rather than simply letting go to the pure infinite potential of the unknown.

But, the truth is, in order to leap, we’ve got to spend a little time in the air without the firm foundation of the ground underneath our feet. The unknown is essential in order for there to be an expansion of our reality. How many times have we been afraid of the unknown?

Today, let’s promise ourselves to take both feet off of the ground and leap into our truth.

Mountains Speak: If You Listen

Mountains Speak:  If You Listen

I went on the most amazing hike alone. I hadn’t trained for it, and man, did I feel it. It was about 10 miles. The trail was very steep and very scary. I was literally crawling up parts of it. At one point I thought, how am I going to make it to the top? I couldn’t go back. It was too steep. Then, I just heard clearly, the mountain would tell me how to do it. So, I stopped, rested, had some water, and waited for the mountain to talk to me. I looked at the mountain. It told me where I should rest. I determined where my resting points would be as I traversed up the mountain. Then, it was clear to me that I had to find well anchored sage and hold onto it as my anchors as I crawled up the mountain. My heart began to pound and beat rapidly. It felt like it was going to explode. I wouldn’t let myself panic. I just stopped, sat down and existed.

I noticed the sound of the silence. I could touch the birds as they glided onto the currents of air. I could hear their wings as the winds wisped through them. If I died here, Ok. Meanwhile, my heart beat slowed down and I felt better. I proceeded. Slowly. Finally, I made it to the top. I noticed the keys were: listening, persistence and not succumbing to fear.

I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life. Costly mistakes. But, whenever I have not allowed fear to dominate my choices and cloud my knowledge of who I am, I have taken the right action. Period. Whenever I have been persistent and not given up when things were difficult, I have been successful. Period. Whenever I have had faith in the fact that all my needs are always met, and there was no need for me to be motivated by limitations or lack, things have worked out. Period. Listening,Persistence and Faith. Words to live by.

Curtain Call

Curtain Call

Guess What?!
The wizard wasn’t real.
The scarecrow had a brain.
The tin man had a heart.
The lion had courage.
Dorothy knew the way home.

The answers were there all along.
If only we had the courage to pull back the curtain.
