Discernment and Faith

dd69569daf0ebf8dbf0ba4f8d7d80c4aDiscernment means to perceive or recognize a truth by sight or with other senses; knowing.

Faith is a passionate intuition.  ~William Wordsworth~

I used to have trouble with the word faith.  In the religious sense of the word, it means to have a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.  Until that is, I realized the word also means complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

We can’t know discernment without faith, faith in ourself that is.  How can we know something is true if we can’t trust ourselves to know that it’s true?  That is what I am being pulled more and more into, faith in myself.  I say pulled into because that is what this feels like.  I am gently being pulled deeply into my center.  And in my center I find my Truth.
