“I think anyone who has an experience of mystery and awe knows that there is a dimension, let’s say, or the universe that is not that which is available to his senses. There’s a wonderful saying in one of the Upanishads, “When, before a sunset or a mountain and the beauty of this or that, you pause and say, ‘Ah, that is participation in divinity.’” And I think that’s what it is, it’s the realization of wonder. And also the experience of tremendous power, which people of course living in the world of nature are experiencing all the time. You know there’s something there that’s much bigger than the human dimension.” – Joseph Campbell
Has anyone reading these words ever considered everything they do is by faith. Faith, our faith, consider it so or not, is what is initiated when we arise in the morning anticipating all is well, and will be so throughout the day for us.
Faith is initiated when after we have washed the nights sleep and drowsiness from our eyes and bodies, we will be able to proceeded to breakfast, and afterwards, step out doors to walk, or enter our cars, for whatever reason, with hope our legs and car will take us, or our family, or friend from one point to another safely without major or minor incidents.
It is faith used with hope if we institute safety measures, acquire security alarms and cameras to protect us, our home base and family security from intruders, nature’s inevitable whims, fire, etc, etc, our faith is our protective fence.
We unconsciously live by faith, as everyone does, yet do we truly comprehend faith is our cornerstone of living?
