Faith

“The believer is not a seeker.  The believer does not want to seek, that’s why he believes.  The believer wants to avoid seeking, that’s why he believes.  The believer wants to be delivered, saved, he needs a savor.  He is always in search of a messiah – somebody who can eat for him, chew for him, digest for him.  But if I eat, your hunger is not going to be satisfied.  Nobody can save you except yourself.” ~ Osho, The Art of Living and Dying

“One way to develop faith and confidence is simply to practice using it. If I were to ask you whether you’re confident that you can tie your own shoes, I’m sure you could tell me with perfect confidence that you can.  Why?  Only because you’ve done it thousands of times!  So practice confidence by using it consistently, and you’ll be amazed at the dividends it reaps in every area of your life.” ~ Anthony Robbins, Awaken the Giant Within

The Ship

I am standing on the seashore.

A ship appears

and spreads her white sails

to the morning breeze

and starts for the ocean.

She is an object of beauty

and I stand watching her

till at last she fades away on the horizon,

and someone at my side quietly says,

“She is gone.”  Gone where?

Gone from my vision, that is all;

she is just as large as when I saw her last.

 

The diminished size

and the total loss of sight

is in me, not in her;

and just at the moment

when someone at my side says,

“She is gone,”

There are others who are watching

her coming and other voices

take up a joyful shout,

“There she comes!”

“Have faith in yourself. But have faith in your friends and neighbors, too. I know life is competitive- but it isn’t a jungle. Like begets like. Faith inspires faith. People give back substantially what we give them.“ ~ Bethany College

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” ~ Steve Jobs
