“Faith is founded upon the observation that the universe operates according to a higher intelligence, a master play, revealed as orderly laws. As Einstein said, “God does not play dice with the universe.” Neither does God play dice with you. If we are God’s creations, literally or figuratively, then we are perfect images of the Divine, here to realize our unity. So we need to ask not only “Do I believe or have faith in God,” but “Do I believe and have faith in myself?” If we are separate from God, cut off from the universe, then our faith is unfounded. But if we are, like a seashell or a star, an innate part of this mystery evolving into mystery, then our life is simply and always unfolding as it should.
So be gentle with yourself. Show yourself the same compassion, kindness, and respect you would show any of God’s amazing creations. Sometimes life is easy and sometimes difficult; sometimes filled with pleasure and other times with pain. But when we look with larger eyes, there is not a problem to be found. Only the Divine unfolding.”
Dan Millman, in “Living on Purpose”
