One important fact to remember is that faith should never be blind.
Blind faith comes from the mind, and true faith comes from the heart.
Recently in an attunement I had chosen, there was a point where I had the choice to jump with faith or not to jump. Either choice was correct for where I was along my path, but for me the greater choice spiritually was to make the jump. It was not a jump of blind faith, but one of faith of the heart.
Before I did the attunement, knowing this choice was ahead I was reminded of one of the books of Carlos Castenada called the “Tales of Power” in which he and another apprentice reach a point where they have a choice to jump off a cliff into the abyss. This popped immediately into my mind when I knew I was going to be asked to jump. Jump into what?
What is the abyss? It is the unknown, to move from that which is familiar into that which is limitless. To let go of the box of the human flesh, and realize that we are the soul, a being of multidimensional awareness and unlimited potential. I wasn’t being asked to jump off a cliff like in the book, but to make the jump or shift in consciouness to “LET GO” and “LET THE CREATOR EMERGE”. I was being called by Jesus, Buddha, my I AM Presence and the Creator. Called to let go of limits and see the reality of what was only possibilities.
There was of course much more to the process leading up to this point but this is the thought of the day. The choice I faced was not one of jumping with blind faith. I had been preparing for this moment. The choice did not require me to jump off a mountain, I might not have made that jump. I knew that I would exist in a different way from that point forward. Was I ready for the change?
“Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary.
This question is one that only a very old man asks. Does this path have a heart? All paths are the same: they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long long paths, but I am not anywhere. Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t, it is of no use. Both paths lead nowhere; but one has a heart, the other doesn’t. One makes for a joyful journey; as long as you follow it, you are one with it. The other will make you curse your life. One makes you strong; the other weakens you.
Before you embark on any path ask the question: Does this path have a heart? If the answer is no, you will know it, and then you must choose another path. The trouble is nobody asks the question; and when a man finally realizes that he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.”
― Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
I knew this jump, this path had a heart, for I knew the ones asking me bring the Love and Light of the Creator. They had walked the path before me and made straight the way. I simply had to choose to let go of the familiar and embrace the limitless. I prepared myself to make this jump before the attunement began, for thankfully the one who does the attunement shared this point.
Blind faith is listening to another who is limited who says that their way is the only way, that they have information which you do not and that you should listent to them and follow them. ONE KEY to remember is in what Carlos Castenada said about is this the path of the heart. You will know if the path or choice you are making is correct by seeking within your heart.
DOES IT MAKE YOUR HEART SING??
This has always been a key for me. I trust my heart. I have made some tremendous changes in my life based upon my heart guided intuition, and although many have been scary, because I stepped out of my safe, familiar and ordinary existence, into the unknown of freedom and change, each one made my heart sing.
Blind faith may stir your emotions and cause you to feel strongly about the path they present to you, but does it benefit ALL Life. My choice made not only my heart sing, but I knew I was being called to be of a higher service, not to glorify me, but to GLORIFY THE CREATOR. For the purpose I am guided in life to do is to help others to see the wonder of the FREEDOM of Being one with the Love and Light of the CREATOR.
We all will one day choose to return to Oneness and Be our I AM PRESENCE. That is the path I have chosen. I will not stop until it is complete. I pray that this will be true for All sooner rather than later.
So do not blindly follow a path, but seek the one that makes your heart sing and you know will set you free to BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE.
P.S. The attunement of which I speak is shared by Nikolaos Baralos on his website. https://nickmparalos.gumroad.com/
It was part of a series I was called by Spirit to complete, which prepared me for this attunement. Please look through them if you feel guided and choose that which calls to your heart. He also offers courses on Udemy.com – search for Nickolas Mparalos – if you watch you can get them at special prices.
