“How do you know?” This is a question I hear a lot. It’s a good question, a valid question, and a reasonable question.
It is also a limiting question. It usually implies that unless my mind can grasp it, I won’t accept it.
As humans, we have been given a unique gift, the ability to let go and have faith. Not to live at the mercy of our intellect, confined to the limitations of what we can prove and understand but to step into a far more expansive dimension which offers us wonderful opportunity and blessing.
Careful! Don’t have faith in just anything but have faith in some things. Those things you can determine to be worthy of faith. Then let go.
Faith is the soul knowing. When your soul knows, your mind doesn’t need to know.
It’s within you!
Alan B Herman says
Your bed-side manner is comforting when you present ways to increase faith in G-d. I liked your second presentation on the packaging of G-d. We can accept G-d as infinite and that is comforting to me and my partner.
Rabbi Aryeh Weinstein says
Thank you! Finding comfort in G-d is the way to go!
