Faith to Doubt, Faith to Trust

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Fear confines and contains your faith. Where is your trust limited and irresolute, your confidence strained and your devotion obstructed? Faith grows as your understanding deepens. What areas of practice need further discernment? Where are you relying on outside authority to boost your confidence and tell you what is true?

Surrender is the surest act of faith. Worry, doubt, control, and fear are what you do to make surrender safe. But true faith is surrendering into life just as it is without deliberation or forethought. This week work with the question “Is there love for this, too?” whenever there is resistance. Remain steadfast through the barrage of fear that inhibits true faith. Begin to realize fear is a temporary illusion of the mind’s truth and faith is founded in the reality of the truth.
