Faith…Some More

Filed under: Uncategorized — Otter @ 8:14 am

I have been grappling with a question lately. What is faith? I mean: What…IS…faith? I am more than willing to write an extensive post on this very topic (and I will), but I need something from you. What definition do you give this powerful and elusive word? Leave a comment. Don’t worry. I really have no intention of jumping on anyone to make my point. I really do want to know what you think. Be it religious, philosophical, psychological, or some other “ogical” that I haven’t thought of…let me know. I haven’t lost my faith, but I’m feeling that it has been mislaid in some existential manner of speaking and I would, frankly, like to pin it down. The word itself carries a bloated sense of self-worth. I’d like to cut through the crap and get to the real meaning of the matter. Since I don’t actually know precisely how I feel about the topic I’d like to depart, momentarily, from convention and solicit a general impression before I embark on a calculated description of my own views.

As usual, I’m listening to something.

“Tuma hee ho bhaava men mere, vicharon mein, pukaron mein.
Banaale yantra ab mujhko mere saravatra samarapita hai

You are the only one in my heart and my thoughts.
You are the one who I call out to.
Now make me your instrument…all I am I offer to you”

A guy can dream…searching for a “you”. As if I need one.
