Faith

Check this page every month for a message from the greater Awareness and a new meditation to try as you choose.

What is faith? Thousands of words have been written on this, so let's keep it simple. Faith is not-knowing. Faith is knowing you can't know. Faith is letting go of thinking you can control the outcome. Faith is acting from love and awareness, choosing love and awareness, even when you can't know the outcome, when you can't control the outcome. Faith is not giving up.

Faith is not -- belief that God is on your side; that you are right and good, and the other is wrong and evil. Faith is not -- belief that everything will turn out your way in the end. Faith is commitment to yourself, to love, to awareness, to healing, and to bringing greater love and awareness and healing into this world in any small way that you can.

Many people are experiencing great uncertainty and change in their lives, so it is a time for faith.

And faith is coming back to center over and over. Faith is remembering to do that. So the meditation for this month is a simple reminder: come back to yourself, over and over. Feel yourself, body, breath, emotion and spirit. Feel your heart center, your belly, your inner knowing. Ask yourself, over and over: "How do I bring greater love and awareness to this situation?"

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.
