"Faith, acts promptly and boldly on the occasion, on slender evidence."
It's comforting to choose a path that seems well-lit and predictable. But, once in a while, we seem to know with inexplicable confidence that it's time to take a risk.

Isn't it also seeing that the mystery of Life...is absolutely a mystery?
What is sin?
What is evil?
What is negativity?

All ideas about yourself come and go. You think you're
enlightened, you think you're unenlightened. You think you know everything, you
think you know nothing. You think you're a teacher, you think you're a student.
