Everyday, We Have Faith
These are dark uncertain realms. These are the rest stops. There are the stops where we realize that we are uncertain. We know something improvable.
This is the stop where I jump off the cliff, hoping there’s water beneath. I hear the water. I see the water. I have heard of others jumping into the water.
Year and year, day and night, cliff divers merge into the dark uncertain realms.
I cannot know that I will reach the water, but I believe. I cannot know anything for certain, but I believe. I cannot know all, but I know as much as I can.
It is time to forget the old thoughts that faith is an element restricted to saints.
Faith is in every step I take down the dark street, in unknown shadows. Faith is in the historian, in the scientist, in the artist. Faith is in the driver, in the friend, in love. Faith is in the mind of the everyday individual, in need of accepting the uncertain realms.
