'Faith' Chapter

Faith

Do I have a higher power I want other people to adopt? No. A creed I feel other people should hold above all else? No. You are where you are. You believe what you believe. Faith is a holistic sense.

Faith Goes Beyond

The topic is faith, and I’m not talking about religion or trust. Trust is sort of going with the flow, and accepting your experiences.  Accepting that you are who and what you are, and that you see the world as… Seek More

Faith in Science

There is a term they use in particle physics, but it has been popularized in parapsychology.  Psi, or the psi factor. It was a value used to explain that although any two particles are detectable as separate bodies, the force… Seek More

Have Faith

Not all moments are “good” moments, we learn from “bad” moments as well. As an example, Mother Teresa was a nun.  A member of her order. She had all the background and was well versed in her faiths teachings. Her… Seek More
