You Are Convinced
Faith gives tremendous momentum and enthusiasm to those seekers who are willing to restrain their skepticism. True faith — faith that "works" — involves conviction. If you have faith you move through daily life convinced of the reality of a higher consciousness and you are confident you will experience that higher consciousness as soon as you are prepared. Further, you are confident you are rapidly being prepared through the efficacy of higher consciousness and its assistance in your development. You are convinced! Even though you feel you have not yet experienced higher consciousness, you are certain you will.
So, faith means complete trust, confidence, or reliance. Faith comes from Middle English and Old French terms as well as the Latin fides, which means confidence and belief, or fidere, to trust.
Often, beginning seekers assume that all other happy people on the path of higher consciousness are filled with faith while they (the beginners) find very little faith or conviction inside their own hearts and minds.
It's common to assume everyone else has the faith but you are going to have to "tough it" through. At the same time, the other people who are traveling with you on your journey of higher consciousness likely have the opposite opinion. They may feel, looking at your face brimming with joy, that you have extraordinary faith and they should be more like you. They may be trying to emulate your faith!
