Often, beginning seekers assume that all other happy people on
the path of higher consciousness are filled with faith while they (the beginners) find
very little faith or conviction inside their own hearts and minds.
It's common to assume
everyone else has the faith but you are going to have to "tough it" through. At
the same time, the other people who are traveling with you on your journey of higher
consciousness likely have the opposite opinion. They may feel, looking at your face
brimming with joy, that you have extraordinary faith and they should be more like you.
They may be trying to emulate your faith!
When you have faith you not only think higher consciousness might be a reality, you are
so convinced you make every possible effort toward higher consciousness
short of any self-destructive strain or stress. Faith implies action with continuity. Once
you have faith you won't stop now and then, feeling everything's in vain as the
more scientific or doubtful seekers tend to do through regular rest stops along the way.
You will, because of your hopefully well-placed trust, have tremendous momentum. You
will be able to deal with your doubts and quibbles while maintaining good speed in your
quest toward greater consciousness.
