"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.
Moving in faith takes a joyful heart and willingness to surrender perfectionism. Those leaps, both big and small, bring us to a new level of living, thinking and loving.

Order in chaos or chaos in order?
I find BOTH to be true in various situations.
Too much order
can indeed lead to chaos because only a few individuals control the masses while
too much chaos leads to lack of organization which again isn't always fruitful.
The duality is inseparable; like two halves of a full circle
& trying to find out where one starts & the other ends.
impossible to perceive with a resentful & controlling paradigm, unlike the
perception of an accepting & harmonious paradigm BUT aren't all paradigms
controlled in some manner based on individual perspectives via various
Can there ever be a 100% unconditionally open paradigm by nature
given the fact all of us come THROUGH various "systems" of cultures,
religions, traditions, etc?
Okay...this is all still fermenting "up here" but
here it goes...
1- The 3 greatest mysteries; a bird unto air, a fish unto
water, a man unto himself,
That is the greatest mystery to each is what they are
"swimming" in or overwhelmed by
2- Things always exist in relativity, a relation is what you
observe between black & white; not each by itself
Unconditionality, or harmony (for the sake of positive
naming) & acceptance, comes from the acceptance of a relationship between
one & outside
That is: when one judges outside he also judges himself
accordingly; like the difference between saying "he is rough" and
"he is more rough than me"
So, unconditionality is through understanding one's self
& environment one was brought up in as an equal to others as well as how is
it different in a sense of nature rather than judgement for e.g.: conservative,
liberal as opposed to good or bad
I used to contemplate the connotative harmony in the sounds
of chaotic metropolitan streets in a rush hour; the horns, the shouts, the
calls, the fights...etc
There was a sense of a higher, balancing, will that
encompasses all those independent shards of it that usually seek imbalance in
one direction or another; causing them eventually, no matter the time scale you
contemplate, to balance each other out
It just occurred to me: the misunderstanding of the order in
chaos, might be due to rejection of the beholder to the order of a will other
than the beholder's own
But then again there is no order in chaos and there is no
chaos in order.
When all is flowing well, it is smooth; there is not even a scent
of chaotic energies.
When we focus on what we are fearful of or worry about or
think will not turn out well, we find ourselves in chaotic energies defeating
our very purpose and focus on order...what is order?
Order is what one believes
it to be.
Order may not be a smooth flow because it is in the various odd
moments that we find the most satisfaction...
So for me, no chaos in order and
no order in chaos.
