Keep the Faith

Why is it so hard to keep your faith that things will get better??

Last Friday, I was looking for news articles on someone who is important to me. I use Google Alerts for such a purpose. After creating a draft alert, I noticed an article. After reading that article, I decided to delete my draft alert. That news did not raise my hopes – to put it mildly.

I then clicked on a link in an email about new films and series. After opening that link, I immediately noticed the tv series Keeping Faith (2017-2021). To me, that felt like a personal message, which was not to meant be misunderstood. Clearly, I needed a sign to keep my faith.

Last Saturday, while writing this blog, I considered changing the draft title into: Why is keeping your faith so hard? After some consideration, I did not do that as that title feels (too) negative. Nevertheless, it’s my first sentence and paragraph in order to highlight the contents of this blog.

I’m not sure if I know the answer.

That important person and I may never meet. Nevertheless, (s)he is included in my prayers, ever since I know about her/his existence. Hence, (s)he is always on my conscious. I believe that our consciousness is affected by other dimensions (eg, panpsychism). Hence, I take that message seriously.

Is this an answer? Perhaps. Is it an answer to the question in my first sentence? Perhaps. If you don’t believe in panpsychism then it’s probably not an answer for you. In that case you might look for the answer in the triangle of Body, Mind & Soul. Bodies are often weak and minds are easily seduced.

In faith there is enough light for those who want to believe and enough shadows to blind those who don’t.
