Sometimes Faith is all that I have. The practice might appear on first read, on first hearing it to not be of any benefit and rather questionably lead anywhere. “How can that work?”
At such times I am asking myself to build on the faith that has come on the back of past lessons learnt from sources that I have come to trust. That is what faith sits on the back of, trust. Learnt, experiential trust. My experience.
With that faith I can then step out and at least try a new lesson, even if doubt or fear might be my predominant feelings. I see it like a parent helping a child learn a new skill. The child might be scared to give it a go, but trusting the parent they try, and with time the uncertainty and fear is transformed into a lived experience.
