World View Perspective: Finding that flicker of faith

Just like the downpour of any storm, just when all the lights have gone off, fear of survival sets in and somewhere there has to be a flicker of faith that reignites us.  Maybe it is seeing the neighbor's light finally coming on or finding the batteries still work in the flashlight or finding the abundance of candles and matches available, which tells us all is well.  It may seem trivial but it is enough to brighten our day and give us the courage to continue.  There is a true reality to who we are, why we are here, what we can do and become.  It is worth aspiring to know that truth is found in our absolute core fire.  The fire that ignites all our passion, our finest interests and our greatest desire to know and to understand.  Our own inspirations are a clue to this notion of where our true passions lie.  When we open to that true flicker of faith within us and kindle what we find there, miracles can happen.  Perhaps they are small at first and barely noticeable but when we fan the flicker of faith, the miracles of faith continue to grow.

If we see it as a light within us.  It may just be a spark of positive thinking or a small feeling that makes us happy.  Embracing that feeling and stoking it, we allow and encourage it to grow and expand.  The more we visualize the fire, flame or flicker, the happier we become.  Realizing we are that light, that essence of life itself, the more we can trust it and put our faith into it.  It serves to renew a deeper sense of self that we can continuously feel, love and support, which creates the depth of relationship we need to have with our inner relationship to faith itself.

Maybe the faith is just in living from now into tomorrow, maybe it is having faith in every breath and perhaps it is having faith in how far we have come in life.  The flicker of faith does not have to be big to start us on a path of fueling the inner faith.  It just has to be sincere, active and with plenty of positive attention so it can grow.

Look, search and do inner research to what brings you a sense of positive well being and what it would take to enhance it.  Put your faith into the most positive flicker you can find.  Watch how it grows.  Let that flicker of faith guide you into uplifting your inner fire to take it even higher!  Aspire to feel that faith throughout and let it shine!
