Trust behind deeper faith


Article reads: The second, deeper, faith is gentler and heart-derived. When we see people who weather terrible suffering with grace, we are watching such faith in action. There may or may not be a particular religious belief system at work, but peace in the face of terror arises from heartfelt confidence in cosmic ‘rightness’ that arises from the deeper wells of human spirit. It is faith that the universe is so lovely and mysterious that the only sensible stance is to surrender before its howling gales with awe. It bespeaks a tender relationship with life that makes no demands, but accepts the gift of every living moment.
