Faith is unconditional love

Faith is a celestial force and a belief in outcomes

that we willfully invoke,

to profess our credos with overwhelming intensity.

Faith morphs believing

into an unstoppable inner strength

that becomes our spiritual engine

and dotes on us

a continuum of goodness and a giving soul.

Faith is awareness of the spirit

and mindfulness of the soul.

Faith is the indispensable source of meaning in our lives.

Faith is mysterious as it deals

with two rational unsolvable existential questions:

The conundrum of creation

and the enigma of a higher calling.

Faith is the realization

that there are many questions

about our universe’s origin

we don’t have an answer for

— neither we have proof

how it was created,

nor where will we be afterlife —

yet, we still deliberately chose to believe

wholeheartedly and steadfastly

in the existence of The Creator of it all.

Faith is unconditional love,

as well as,

the immutable, unstoppable, unwavering,

unflickering, stubborn

and indomitable belief,

that there is a reason and a purpose

for us being here,

dictated and gifted by The Creator.

When we profess it inside of a cocoon,

faith is nothing more

than an empty shell of falsehood.

Individualistic faith thrives

behind shields and walls of weakness,

erected to shy away,

disconnected from the world

through pitiful, self-serving beliefs;

just tunnel vision fantasies of our mind,
