Why you need blind faith (and how to get it)
The definition of faith may not be very clear. Much has been said about what faith is but living it remains a challenge many people are yet to overcome. Faith is unlimited trust in someone or something. It is a strong belief that you are ready to defend and contribute your time and resources towards it.
Faith has no boundaries. It is as deep as the pacific and wide as the heavens. You can do unimaginable things for faith’s sake. It remains the best choice you make in your eyes even when everyone around you has their doubts. Does faith have eyes? Can it see the reality of the matter or how desperately you believe in a cause? Well, faith has eyes and ears. It is living if you practice it correctly (there are rules of practice). However, some limitations block the manifestation of faith in your life. Some of these limitations are:
The gift of sight is a blessing but it is the greatest obstacle of faith. The eyes of faith do not require physical vision. They are within you and can see beyond physical things. Such is the weight of faith. It requires you to be ‘blind’. Who does not love sight? We use it to watch our favorite shows, play games, behold the beauty of the universe, visualize how things look like, and many more. By the same sight, we see obstacles in our way. This impossible mentality brought by sight is the number one enemy of faith. It is a great limitation of believing that things will work out fine because what we see at the moment is the difficulty ahead.
Your mind conceives a lot of things. It may work for faith or against it. Sadly, it mostly works against it because of sight as seen earlier on. Your mind is an asset that continually thinks about what is possible as told by all body senses. It automatically rejects dreams that do not conform to the standards it has set (unless trained otherwise). No wonder, most people of faith are looked down upon by the ‘rational’ ones. Faith can never make sense where the mind does not embrace it. The two can never co-exist harmoniously if the mind is unprepared.
It is normal to doubt illogical theories and dreams. But when it goes overboard, faith stops working. It has eyes and ears to recognize your doubts. It will never work for you because you are constantly opposing that it will work. You do not have to agree right away but allow faith some benefit of the doubt that it can work. You can have your doubts but it gets worse when other people contribute to them. It is like they are outing a rubber stamp in your mind that what faith is trying to make happen shall not succeed.
Overcoming these limitations requires that you have blind faith. The kind of faith that will be adamant on the possibility that it will work. Here is how you can develop blind faith:
Use vision instead of sight.
Vision is for the long term while sight is short term. The visually impaired may lack sight but they can have vision. Something is seriously wrong when you do not have a vision of where you are heading. Your vision is what a compass is to a sea sailor. It gives direction when they are in the middle of the ocean. A sharp vision will see the prize at the end of the race and not the obstacles on the way.
Focus on the bigger picture.
Your mind will tell you about here and now because it is what you can see at the moment. To develop blind faith, you need to focus on the end product. Look at how beautiful the end will be and let this inspire you to outgrow the thoughts of your mind. Not all thoughts are bad. It is just that some may mislead you to think about the possibilities at the moment and not the wonders that blind faith can bring into your life. Your vision is uninterrupted when you focus on the bigger picture. It is what fertilizer is to crops on the farm – constantly providing nutrients for growth. Likewise, the bigger picture feeds your faith.
You need to listen to the voice of reason when you are in despair. This will build your faith more. Do not listen to those who are out there to discourage you and show you that it is not possible. They will sink even the little hope that was turning to faith. Be careful with whom you give attention. They are the ultimate faith builders or breakers.
A lot of power lies in blind faith. It will help you overcome a million hurdles your way. These are some of its benefits:
You manifest the law of attraction.
The law of attraction works on the principle of faith. You only attract what you think, speak, or feel. They are major players in manifesting your faith. Blind faith is necessary because it helps you develop the right attitude in manifesting the law of attraction.
You rise above challenges.
Challenges are part of the growing process. It is difficult to grow through them without faith – blind faith to be specific. Your focus shifts from the prevailing challenges to the prize at the end of the race. It is a powerful driving force that is unstoppable by challenges of any nature.
It clears any doubt you may have.
Faith and doubts can never mix. When you finally develop blind faith, it means that you have overcome all forms of doubts. You are empowered to try new things that will contribute to the success of your vision.
It empowers you to see only the positive side.
Positivity is impossible without faith. The list of benefits of positivity is endless. The major one is that it is the best gift for yourself. When you bag faith in your bucket list, you have a lot more rewards too.
It is high time you appreciated blind faith more and follow this guide to work towards achieving it. It will unlock the full potential of your vision.
