There’s so much to be afraid of in this world. Overwhelming darkness and suspect figures in the shadows hissing at passersby. An ice-cold world where anyone with warmth in their blood and light upon their faces is quickly undone.
If you look to the outside for validation, all you’ll be left with is insecurities. If you scan your environment for signs of safety, all you’ll get is fear and anxiety. And if you look to this world for reassurance, all you’ll get in return is a crippling doubt in yourself.
This world is merely a reflection of your inner realm. What you find before you is what is within you. What you change within, will manifest without. Embody the reality you’d like to see in this world. By enriching others, you enrich yourself. By doubting others, you doubt yourself. All evil and suffering is a lack of understanding and faith. By faith I mean believing in something before it manifests, before it’s tangibly evident. Believing in the good of someone’s intention. Believing that there’s a place for you in this world. Believing that your dream and desires that arise within you like waves crashing against the shore, pulling and pushing, with the ebb and tide of your consciousness, will see the light of day eventually.
Any progress, invention, discovery was once a seed carried in someone’s unwavering faith in it. How many dreams have you killed or let die? Is your heart meant to be a cemetery or a playground? Your focus is a creative force that creates and amplifies what it’s fed on. Your faith channels that force. And in the absence of faith, doubt takes over and all it does it create replicas of itself; an army of doubt and suffering to extinguish the last ray of light in your world.
