"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.

( •_•) \) (> / \When you think you've discovered what for you is TRUTH, sit
down, be still, quiet your mind, and go deeper, always deeper.
Find that place
inside where there are no words, no thoughts, no you or me, no this or that, no
TRUTH or error, no sin or righteousness, no black or white, just simple, naked,
It isn't difficult really.
The mind can't
figure it out, of course, but it's right there, underneath and behind all of
your thoughts and words.
It's the silent background that is the Source of
everything. It's what many people refer to as God, but which has nothing at all
to do with mythical beings.
It is just this, and this, and this.
We so depend on our minds to find the address of this place, but the
skills of the mind can never locate it.
And yet it can never really be lost...only
unrealized or unrecognised by the mind.
So go to the Silence within your heart.
Go there and be embraced by the mystery you find there. Lose yourself in it,
like diving into the delicious waters of a mountain lake.
Lose yourself and
find something far more precious, something that cannot be spoken but which can
certainly be KNOWN.
Find your deepest SELF.
PS If you think you can speak the truth or even think it, you're mistaken. Shhhh.
