There are many versions of faith. Most believe that faith is a version of their belief in something that they know will ensue. Real faith is truly blind, as true Faith is a virtue that comes from deep within the soul as a knowing and a believing in something or someone without proven fact. Faith is not made from ones knowledge or background. Faith and hope are inexorably intertwined as both come from the same place within the soul.
When faith is called upon and believed there is a knowing from the internal spiritual wellspring that is activated. This feeling is love. Many feel faith is activated within their being when what they want to feel is faith, and it is really hope. Hope is a facet of faith, and is part of the equation, but is not the full step into faith. One cannot rely on hope alone as it can dissolve quickly where faith does not.
Faith is as solid as a rock and carries with it the aspect of trust. Trust is an aspect of faith and full faith cannot be obtained without trust. Trust is more of a challenge than faith as it is not part of the ego program. Trust does not have ‘versions’ and it is the foundation of love. Trust often carries with it an aspect of fear. ‘What if’ is a precursor of fear and is not part of faith or trust. As you know you cannot be in love and fear at the same time. This also means you cannot be in faith without trust, so to have faith you must have trust through belief, and it must come from deep within your being.
To live your life with faith as your creed and trust as your anchor means that you are going with the flow of your journey. And at that point, nothing can alter your course and you have no fear. This means that what you believe to be true will strengthen your faith, trust and hope will enlighten your life’s journey.

Stepping into this most sacred and holy state of being nourishes your life and in turn expands your spirit to enhance your journey and empower your faith. Nothing can stand in your way nor can your faith be altered or affected.

Realizing this can be fearful, and knowing that you are never alone embeds your journey with faith and trust in your process. Your journey is your purpose and how you live it is the point. Living your life through your heart (and healing along the way) will instill your journey with faith, trust, and love. What more can you hope for? There is nothing that matters more than this.
