Blind Faith in Self Reflection
Have faith or so the saying goes. Isn’t this just Blind Faith? What is faith? Wikipedia defines faith as:
Faith is confidence or trust in a person or thing, or a deity or in the doctrines or teachings of a religion. It may also be belief that is not based on proof. In religion, faith often involves accepting claims about the character of a deity, nature, or the universe. While some have argued that faith is opposed to reason, proponents of faith argue that the proper domain of faith concerns questions which cannot be settled by evidence. For example, faith can be applied to predictions of the future, which (by definition) has not yet occurred.
The word faith is often used as a substitute for hope, trust or belief.
There’s no proof so have Blind Faith. Faith is believing in what is true. Faith has two elements: 1) being convinced of the truth, being certain of reality, having evidence of unseen things, and 2) believing, hoping in, embracing, seizing the truth of something unseen.
Yep, just another definition. Another description of something that’s indescribable. As such does Blind Faith really exist? The concept of faith is a broad one, in its most general description “faith” means much the same as “trust”. “Trust” me, we’ll get there. “Trust” me, I’ll take care of you, “Trust” me, you’ll get you money back. Or even “trust” in me, and you will be saved.
However, with the notion of religious faith or, rather, the kind of faith exemplified in religious faith. The philosophical accounts are almost exclusively about theistic religious faith. Blind faith in God, and they generally, although not exclusively, deal with faith as understood within the Christian branch of the Abrahamic traditions. Blind faith in something we have never experienced. Expect in church. Not one of us live today ever walked with Christ the man. Well maybe one, if you have Blind faith. But, although the theistic religious context settles what kind of faith is of interest, the question arises whether faith of that same general kind also belongs to other, non-theistic, religious contexts, or to contexts not usually thought of as religious at all. It may perhaps be apt to speak of the faith of, (for example), a humanist, or even an atheist, using the same general sense of ‘faith’ as applies to the theist case.
There is, of course, no ‘established’ terminology for different models of faith. So Blind faith is what we get. I always felt that faith is a crutch. It’s something to lean on when we can’t stand on our own two feet. So having faith seemed like a waste of energy. Self awareness doesn’t need faith, it requires knowing. A knowing of the self in an indescribable fashion. It requires one to experience self in as many ways possible. One can change a belief, change a hope, embrace something different, and seize a truth. But the fact remains it is the self that does all these things.
In a world of energy, where everything in this universe is energy. Faith takes energy. Being in the realm of energy, the human body is an energy body. That rest in a sea of energy emanating from the source of all energy. One may call this source of energy GOD and that’s fine. GOD then becomes a simple matter of ones inventory. A description of the indescribable, trapping one into its realm. I am not arguing the existence of GOD. GOD to me is simply a matter of perception, of the energy source of all things. To give it a personification through requires a description of blind faith. For unless one can see the source of all things with their own awareness, one has no other choice but to have faith that it exist. If giving it a name is what one requires at this time, so be it. Just don’t forget to remember that the name is just a description, to make it easy for one to describe what in reality they can not describe. It’s this blind faith in this something without having seen it for them self that we are discussing. Which brings us back to the self.
The big Enchilada, Blind Faith in Self-Reflection
Self-Reflection is the key to Blind Faith. For when one doesn’t know them self, then for one to make sense of life. One must have Blind Faith in something else or nothing at all. To get rid of self-reflection, meaning the less one self-reflects, the more one will perceive the world at large and what’s really in this world realm. To be or not to be that is the question?
Blind Faith in self-reflection has two sides. One part contains all that is good. This part makes us stretch into inconceivable worlds of the unknown and tackle the challenges this presents. For this Doowan there is no other force that drives one life to the knowing of ones self. Inner Silence is the way to turn off the internal dialog that keeps us trapped in our reasons description of this world.
While Blind Faith in Self-Reflection has two sides, this in essence is a cohesion, a state of energy. It invariably reflects having a specific energy field. Which can either be ordinary or non-ordinary. The other side to self-refection is the side that consists of all that is putrid. It turns people into petty tyrants, and ego maniacs that keeps perception imprisoned in a world description which one rarely escapes in their lifetime. Thank GOD for Death.
Blind Faith in the Emotional side of Self Reflection
Let’s isolate the two sides for better clarity. The emotional side is where one measures them self about whether one is good or bad, worthy or unworthy, proficient or not. Self Enhancement, is bolstering or diminishing one’s own sense of self. When seen, people spend huge amounts of energy in defending themselves against the onslaughts of everything that seems to be outside their sense of personal self. This energy (Personal Power) could be better spent or even saved in the pursuit of other life endeavors. Truth is we aren’t the way we think we are.
Have Blind Faith in this statement and see your reaction. Getting angry or irritated when someone sets forth an idea, not inline with ones personal thinking (Internal Dialog) because someone thinks, or behaves contrary to what one believes or feels is appropriate. Being politically correct is a big one now days. It’s a mold we must all fit into or be admonished. Self righteousness or indignation pumping up ones volume of emotional outburst to prove ones point erupts when ones cohesion doesn’t match their surroundings. Have faith in your fellow-man that their point of view is right. Leaves self out of the experience.
Blind Faith in the Mental side of Self Reflection
The other side is all mental. Reason plays a big part in this, thus it defines and interprets ones self, others, and the world in general. Blind Faith in the self-reflection of reason allows only a reasonable point of view. Reason organizes thoughts about our environment, our desires, hopes, dreams, goals, and our world view. It only receives information from the process of talking to ourselves and others. In spite of the power of reason it only caters to perceptions on the surface of ones existence. The more one talks to them self and creates a worldview, the further one is removed from the total experience. Interestingly as one verbalizes, the symbols represent the experience, thus removing one even further from the actual experience it’s self. So reasoning out an experience leaves us twice removed from the experience. This creates an experience in our mind purely of thought separating us even further from the source of creation, which lays beyond description. Thus reason eclipses our other faculties and our perception becomes a narrow band of reason. Since reason only receives information how can it have an original thought of its own?
Blind Faith, the bottom line of Self Reflection
The bottom line is that our interpretation, definition, or description of anything, is a reflection from the self to the self within our energy body. This has its highs and lows. Simply by defining something, we bring it into view. The low side is that we don’t let go of our definitions or descriptions of what was just brought into view. How can one remain open to new experiences of awareness with old definitions?
To lose Blind Faith in Self Reflection Don’t criticize others, don’t define yourself, when Blind Faith in Self Reflections surface, track it, find the source. See what it has to reveal. Stop your internal dialog. Gaze frequently. Don’t let the behavior of others offend you. We are no different from any other animals in nature we are a part of. Develop an attitude that we are all a part of nature and nature has energy. Gardening is our passion. Provide service to others, these activities take one away from the Blind Faith of Self Reflection, providing useful experiences and insights about ourselves and others.
Blind Faith or plain faith is a just a description of something unseen. Experience the unseen and drop the distraction. Create a detailed description of ones world, laugh at it, and through it away. Both sides of Self Reflection must be brought under control to proceed to the next level of perception. This allows one to open new doors of perception, frees up energy for the energy body, and gives one personal power, thereby strengthening ones connection with the spirit. Which is our connection to the source of all things. Blind Faith calls this GOD. Have Faith or don’t have faith, Energy doesn’t have an opinion. It just flows to all things equally from the source.
