How To Overcome Yourself Through Faith

Spread the love

For those who can believe everything is possible…

Lately, the “believe and do not search” slogan has been adopted on a wider scale, especially by those not personally engaged in a spiritual way.

Unfortunately, this strengthens a false concept according to which there is a separation –  even a conflict – between rationality and faith.

Faith thus remains only a subjective emotional attitude, while rationality is only an objective thinking, expressed through a cerebral approach.

Seeing this form of knowledge fragmented and its negative effects on the unity of our humanity, I feel a moral duty to reaffirm some truths revealed to our holy Fathers.

 

#1. First Step in Our Spiritual Life

The essence of any virtue, and the beginning of any good manifestation is faith.

But because of God’s greatness, at the beginning of our journey, we are only asked to believe.

This way, our benevolent response to the first impulse of faith becomes our commitment to the spiritual path.

 

#2. Seeing Beyond Reasoning

Gradually, as our free cooperation, faith grows and pours new light on rational truths.

Through the expression of the new faith we are to know the truths beyond rationality. But here it’s about an experienceable knowledge, the participation in the act of knowledge.

Faith leads us to overcome our natural powers, giving our minds the opportunity to work according to its own simple nature.

At this stage, all our powers gather and meet at the same source point from which they receive their energy of manifestation.

#3. An Expression of Our Lives

Our rationality is intended to analyze our sensory experiences and data received through the senses, so that they do not cause harm to our mind.

When our rationality properly judges the expression of the senses, attributing to each experience what is right, then our mind express itself according to its unity and simplicity.

However, in order to be able to free our understanding from the passionate attachments of things and their selfish use, we need the living expression of faith.

Faith in the living God is not the same with belief in the existence of a god, which we all can represent within our minds.

First requires our engagement in a personal relationship with Him, the latter remains a rational impersonal approach that does not say anything about the essence of the known object.

Faith places rationality in a life concept, being rather a spiritual attitude that must be adopted against a God beyond man’s possibilities of encompassing it with the mind.

The vivid expression of faith consists of attitudes and human powers in the service of faith, and is manifested by the fulfillment of divine commandments, in which God „is hidding”.

Faith comes to give meaning to our lives and reorganize our human actions ground, in every gesture and every word.

 

#4. Sensing the Ultimate Reality

There are three stages in human reporting on its existential coordinates:

  1. Perceiving and understanding sensitive things, common – in its primary forms – to the entire animal kingdom;
  2. Knowledge of the sensitive, the specific of man – the rational being – which involves the separation of intelligible meanings from the sensitive realities of the world and the concrete experience of life;
  3. Belief understood as life, as “view” and “understanding” beyond the common understanding, a spiritual intuition that encompasses the whole reality.

Only through faith can man come to see and possess above all known through the senses and through the mind.

Faith is the most subtle form of knowledge, as it captures the imperceptible, the indefinite, the form of the highest reality, the person.

You cannot describe a personal reality exhaustively by any intellectual attempt and even less sensory.

There is a certain transcendence of the human person who can not be the object of human knowledge.

Faith is the way of life of a personal subject entrusted with a profound truth in which he participate, beyond perceptible and comprehensible. That is why it can not be replaced with anything else.

Ultimately, faith is the right state for you to see, know and understand.

 

Conclusion

 

Our essentials are above human reasoning and are based only on faith.

Instead of rational approaches that can not probe existential depths, we have another way for our edification: faith.

Faith is capable of giving us a deeper look, a power by which we overcome our human powers.

It can reconcile what our mind can not agree: paradoxes, contradictions or adversities.

Being above every human judgment, faith is much clearer than any idea born out of the human mind.

 

So, are you prepare to overcome yourself through the power of faith?

  2. I don’t think its a great idea to add a link in the website field which links to a specific post related to the topic you are commenting on.
    Wish more blogs gave you the chance to edit your comments like some already do after hitting the submit button!

  3. Once you’ve hit the ‘submit comment’ button, its all over. No going back and fixing spelling mistakes or poor grammar.
    Not something i’m great at because i had to study really hard just to achieve a B+ in English at secondary College.

  4. Referring to a specific section or paragraph of a post when commenting makes it easy for the post author and readers to follow your comment. This can help increase replies to your comments and interest in you and your blog which builds your online presence.
    Blogging is all about your own personal authentic experience which you can use to build your credibility online.

  5. If you use your real name, you’ll be taken more seriously and people won’t think you may be trying to hide something.
    Successful bloggers are known by their name. Many even name their blog the same as their personal name.

  6. Whenever you comment on any blog using the email address you sign up with at Gravatar, your image will be displayed next to your comments. So be thoughtful before you start commenting on blogs in your niche as you build your online identity.
    These get more click thru’s than results which don’t feature a persons face. Its the same with comments. Always use an email address which has an avatar attached to it.

  7. I guess you’ve probably noticed peoples head shots next to the search results when using Google.
    At the same time you are adding useful tips which the readers of the post can use to solve problems and reap the benefits.

  8. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing issues with your site.
    It appears as if some of the text in your posts are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a
    issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thanks
