Faith (A first step towards yourself) lesson 1: It’s not easy to heal. To get rid of bad habits. To be a better person, none of its easy, but you must try to stay patient with yourself. And what if I tell you there are three types of faith, those are:
- Faith in yourself.
- Faith in the world and nature.
- Faith in God.
You need to have faith in yourself—without this, you might get a phase in your life, word called “self-doubt”. You must have faith in the nature—without this, you can’t move an inch in the world. Same with the faith in God – have faith in divine and you will evolve. All these faiths are connected to each other. I am saying this because still we have a n number of doubt about the “faith”. some of the people have faith in the world- but the whole world is like an illusion and a soap bubble for them. People have faith in themselves—but they don’t even know who they are. People have faith in God—but they have no idea of God.
Let’s understand this in more detail Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar once said “faith is a wealth. If you think, by having faith in God you are doing favour to God, you are mistaken. Faith gives you stability, centeredness, calmness and love.” Your faith gives you immediate strength. Faith is a great wealth; it is a blessing. He also says “faith in yourself brings freedom. Faith in the world brings you peace of mind. Faith in God evokes love in you”. If you lack faith, you have to pray for faith. But to pray, you need faith. Faith makes you full- faithful means If you have faith, you are full. No matter how many times you fall, just pick yourself up and try again. It’s okay if you need longer to heal, please give yourself as much as you need. Have faith in the process of becoming a better version of yourself, have faith that everything will work itself out. Most often time it does. It may not today, tomorrow or even a week from now, but it will in its own timing. Treat yourself with kindness, go easy on yourself and do somethings that is good for you, whether that’s doing some cardio, yoga, going for a walk, listening music or watching your favourite show or maybe sitcom. Sometime it’s perfectly fine to go with the flow, rather than constantly struggling about it. Healing and growing is a never-ending process. And it is important for your inner strength. Don’t worry about terms like Trust, belief, confidence, hope all of them are equal to faith. So, if you have faith, you are getting all of them. We all knows Ture love starts from loving yourself but the first step of loving yourself is to have faith in yourself and it speaks the language of the heart.
Just have faith have faith in the process of becoming your better version. Today’s reminder for you is “we were born to be real not to be perfect”. Everything goes have faith in the process. 🙂
