Faith


We can let our lives be directed
by the same force that makes
flowers grow. {…}

To trust in the force
that moves the universe
is faith.

Faith isn’t blind it’s visionary.
Faith is believing that the universe
is on our side, and that the universe
knows what it’s doing.

Faith is a psychological awareness
of an unfolding force for good,
constantly at work in all dimensions.

Our attempts to direct this force only
interferes with it.
Our willingness to relax into it allows
it to work on our behalf.

I just read this poem out loud to Donica. She liked it so much that she asked me to send a link of the post to her Inbox. I did.

Thanks for sharing this reflection! I firmly believe the universe knows what it is doing!! The hard part...is learning to relax and let it happen!!!
