~ Do not be afraid of tomorrow, for the Divine is already there. ~
Fear can keep us up all night long, but faith makes a fine pillow on which to rest.
Lay down your head upon that pillow of faith and kick every mediocre attitude out of the bed.
Sleep a healing sleep bathed in faith.
Faith keeps us in a wordless and profound conversation,
intimate and immediate, with the natural world.
Faith is not just a by-product of a belief in a god or religion, is the state of the natural world.
You can find and develop faith and a knowing trust that all will be well
by going out into nature and immersing youself in it.
By gazing into the vastness of a blue sky and losing the repetitive chatter of your everyday mind,
or by being part of the growing energy of a forest,
or by merging your spirit with the surge of the sea.
In paying respect to nature, you pay respect to yourself and know that you
are part of nature too, and so faith is inspired.
Anywhere there is nature there is the making of faith.
