Emmanuel says “as your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.” I’m sure we all know that one truly faithful person, whose light shines from the peace within. And I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like they’ll never quite get to that place.
Faith is often a spiritual concept. However, it can also be a confident belief or trust in a person, idea or thing. Gandhi emphasized that we “must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.” Has humanity lost its luster in your eyes? Visit this site for stories about some truly remarkable people, like a Mississipi civil rights worker who scared off the Klansmen buring a cross in her yard and then brought her children out to toast marshmallows over the flame, or the driver who turned on his brights to highlight the way for over an hour when a fellow driver’s car lost its headlights.
There are still people out there worthy of our faith. We should strive to be among them.
Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing she hath wings.
