What is faith?
Faith is nothing but complete trust or confidence in someone or something. For every human being that someone should be his own self first and that something should be the truth he perceives.
There is a difference between faith and belief. Belief arises from the faith that we have in that someone or something. Belief without faith can never be complete. Faith is the “truth” and belief is “trusting” that truth.
Have you seen the action where a father throws up his small kid in the air and catches him on the fall, producing squeals of delight for the kid? This whole action is an act of faith and belief. The father has faith in himself that he will never allow the kid to fall. The kid has the belief that his father will hold him before he falls.
Faith is the ultimate path to success. We need to have complete faith in ourselves and then only can we become successful. https://in.pinterest.com/pin/460070918167967265/. If we have faith in all the gods and goddesses we believe in but still do not have any faith in ourselves, there is no salvation for us.
It is faith which helps us in attaining everything we desire. Faith grows stronger in human beings if they can hold on to the faith. One who has faith in himself is a much stronger character. “As per the older religion an atheist was a person who did not believe in God. As per the new religion an atheist is a person who does not believe in himself” ……. Swami Vivekananda”
Have faith in everything you perceive by virtue of analysis and realisation of the truth underlying the perception. Then follow the same when convinced. Faith never dwindles as it dawns from the realisation of absolute truth.
Faith gives birth to confidence for achieving every possible goal and doesn’t allow human beings to deviate from the path they follow. We need to stick to our own convictions and believe in ourselves first, rather than believing anyone else.
But we should keep one thing in mind, we should not disturb the faith of others. Everyone’s faith is his own jurisdiction and varies as per human prospective. We need to respect the privacy of the faith a person possesses and nurtures.
We need to have faith in mankind, whether they appear to be a learned or a most ignorant one. After having faith in the person, we need to strongly believe that if there are defects in him, if he makes mistakes, if he embraces the crudest doctrines, it is not from his real nature that they come, but from the want of higher ideals.
We need to keep our dealings straight, be it money or relation and must peruse our goal with dedication and honesty. We need to realise that we have the power and we will achieve what we have focused on and then only can we be successful in life. The history of the world is the history of a few men who had faith in themselves.
From the time of the Mughals till the British Raj, we have been ruled by foreigners, why? Only because they had faith in themselves and we didn’t have. We need to realise that we know both the disease and the remedy, the medicine is “faith” which can make an uphill task easy for us.
It’s time now that we know the power of faith lying within us and ignite the same with the purpose to achieve our objectives. Faith makes weak person stronger, increases their self-belief and writes their success story.
