So what is faith? Faith is a purposeful process by which you mentally and emotionally bind yourself to a particular course of action. It is the real belief that something is not only good, but it is a high expectation that what you believe in is obtainable. Faith is a tangible substance that cannot be seen, but its power can be felt. This tangible power is an active spiritual manifestation. Faith is a power to create a product from a thought or a dream. It is the power to make what was clearly impossible to possible. It is the working power of innovation that exists in the spiritual realm. It's a force of potential possibilities. Faith in this purest form is potential energy encased in your inner being that is why I call faith and Hope, pearls of possibilities. They are heirloom seeds of power that pull things from a cosmic realm to a physical realm. It has the power to take what is insoluble and turn it in into a tangible manifestation. Faith is the power to create a product from a thought or a dream. It has the power to transform what is clearly impossible, into the possible. It is the miracle-working innovative power that exists in the spiritual realm. It is a tremendous force of Potential Possibility. Faith in this purest form is potential energy encased in your inner being. That is why I call faith and hope the Pearls of Possibility They are heirloom seeds of power. They are rare; but, powerful indeed if they are allowed to grow. These Pearls of Possibility only have the ability when they are released, Inactive faith is powerless. Its potential and opportunity can only be manifested after they have been planted, watered, and cultivated.
Fear is a cataclysmic force that cripples your ability to release or fulfill, any desired course of action. It is terrible experiences that have resulted in emotional and/or physical trauma, which ultimately prevents you and me from releasing our pearls of possibility (faith). Fear is comprised of our personal demons that keep us from reaching that which allows us to obtain success and those things we truly desire. It is the number one enemy of our faith. Fear is a parasitic virus that eats off of the dreams, ideas, and thoughts located within our soul. Fear causes us to feel inadequate, inferior, and incapable. Our fears are the rocks that we must till and remove from the fertile lands of our soul so that our faith can take root and grow.
Faith and fear are opposing forces that have resided with us and around us since conception. Each and every one of us is given an element of a faith-an assortment of pearls of possibility. These pearls are the seeds that are planted in our hearts. The only limit to their power is our imagination. Fear, on the other hand, is the curriculum of life given to us without our permission. Fear is the lesson and circumstance that are taught to us from our intellectual, environmental ecosystem. These include, but are not limited to, our genetics, race, family, community, society, trauma, and our education. All of these things can lead to roadblocks of fear. They profoundly and strategically teach us how and what to fear. They affect our willpower and resolve, our ability to learn and be empowered, our internal and external motivation and ability. If we can eliminate these fears, then our pearls of possibility optimally flourish and grow, leading us to a positive state of self-awareness and optimal success. It is the faith that prevents the deactivation of these Pearls of Possibility. This fear leads to complacency, dormancy, and depression. The reality is that each and every one of us has these inward battles between faith and fear. However, when success is knocking on our door, we must learn to starve and weed out fear and water our faith.
In conclusion, we are created to live an Unlimited Life. However, we must recognize faith, fear, and the power they both have in influencing and controlling our life.
