Faith

Weird, odd… I have always known – since I can remember about other worlds and crafts and people. Always. I. Have. Just. known. Is that faith? Because I know something there is no proof of? But it is still worlds away from ‘real’ life, and real life is the thing that is gar-un-teed to bite your ass if you do not attend to it.

Interestingly, it puts those other worlds, peoples and technology in a position of being a religion – a faith, by the sheer virtue of something you can never see, but know exists, because you were born knowing it.

On the way back from my son’s house after doing haircut Saturday I was listening to Richard Dolan and Grant Cameron in their new part 1 interview from the Toronto convention. It struck me that they sounded like two Rabbis arguing the Torah, or 2 priests discussing points in the bible on philosophical proofs of God by dismantling the events and evidence left behind and positing the meaning of it to glean a deeper insight to it all. They both agree on an ‘unproven’ that exists – enough to pursue it with great vigor.

It struck me that I was seeing a very modern and intellectual reflection of a cargo cult – or what we now would look like trying to unravel the scanty evidence we have to make a different sense of it. We know better than to worship it, or do we – as the time and effort many put into this subject could be considered worship of a sorts.

Really all we have are the results – all around us – to look at like a forensic crime scene investigation building events backwards in time from the evidence – the end point of the event to possibly understand what has actually happened in a 3D manner. Yes, a big part of that evidence is the lying and secrecy.

It is said that Pisces was the age of external evidence and that Aquarius is the age of internal evidence; of religion vs. spirituality. But really, this whole world runs on faith.

Faith: 1) a strong belief based on internal apprehension rather than proof (proof = external evidence) 2) a complete trust in someone or something

Proof, in the way we want it on this subject just may never come in the form we want it. But, in the internal, faith is proof – a knowing, an apprehension. It only becomes real when you step out of the body. It cannot be 3D.

The only difference between faith and proof is that faith is direct understanding and proof is external understanding. The one sticking point is that external proof can be shared. Internal apprehension cannot be shared, except through story – a recounting – we are not telepaths, yet…

When understood then, there are two distinct states of being – neither superior to the other – just different, like cheese and fruit, complimentary, but separate. We take all here that isn’t 3D on faith – apprehension/understanding, which makes me wonder if faith isn’t the doorway through the veil because there are two sides to mankind: the body and this brilliant mind/soul that lives within that can see and imagine and dream, travel the universe and back, touch what is not manifest but altogether real without proof and actually know that otherness that is out there by going through this inner doorway into absolute wonderment.

That these two worlds are considered separate and care must be taken in everyday life to keep them separated – that never the twain shall meet – but shall live in one body is, well, the confusion of the age.


“Running On Faith” lyrics

Eric Clapton Lyrics

“Running On Faith”

 

[Chorus:]

Lately I’ve been running on faith

What else can a poor boy do?

But my world will be right

When love comes over you

 

Lately I’ve been talking in my sleep

I can’t imagine what I’d have to say

Except my world will be right

When love comes back your way

 

I’ve always been

One to take each and every day

Seems like by now

I’d find a love who cares just for me

 

Then we’d go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you

 

[Chorus]

 

Then we’d go running on faith

All of our dreams would come true

And our world will be right

When love comes over me and you

When love comes over you
