People often dismiss belief, their own included, as being intangible and without potency. Yet it is belief that differentiates the trajectory of our lives. Will we live and die without tasting the nectar of the almighty, who knocks on our door incessantly? Do we not honestly examine our beliefs because doing so would mean untying the rope from the dock and venturing into uncharted territory? Believers and non-believers are equally bound. Is trusting that difficult? Clinging to the unreal brings more difficulty and greater pain than venturing into the unknown. It is in the accepting of the unknown and the experience of trust that beckons the eternal friend. And it is within that beckoning that the beauty of our lives is revealed.
