Faith- quite a simple but misunderstood word.
Not necessarily a religious word on its own, but a word that the religious community has had the corner on its meaning for quite some time. As I am more of a thought provoker than I am a writer, I want to provoke thoughts on the word faith, not from the religious angle, but on the side of acknowledging our collective connection to the simplest meaning of the word faith.
Faith is simply not having any doubt about the validity and absolute confidence of something or someone.
We all have faith, maybe we don’t use that word because of the religious connotations, nonetheless all of us put our absolute confidence in something or someone, including ourselves and the world in which we are part of!
Everyday we wake up with faith (absolute confidence) in gravity, that for some strange reason we won’t shoot off into outer space, because gravity is and has always been part of our daily routine (unless of course you are an astronaut and then you have a completely new take on gravity, because it has been part of your experience).
Faith is not something to be feared, but rather an acknowledgement of what or who it is that we place our complete confidence in.
