these past few weeks, the topic of faith has been brewing in my mind – till it invoked lots of doubts, distress and what nots.
everyone in us acknowledged that to live is to have faith. we are made by Him and Him is who we are to return. however, people naturally will have different interpretations as to which and what does the Thruth that’s to be known. and this is where conflicts and contradictions come appears, for as long as i can remember.
i believe, that the only way to have trust in something that is so important, is to acknowledge and compare and analyse and observe contradictions. only from there, judgement can be derived, and hopefully, the judgement may be sound. we are born in the surroundings that we are, and brought up by the parents of ours and, sadly, sometimes traditions can blind us in our path for faith. we don’t question, and answers will be hidden. we just follow what our parents do, and rarely do we question the reasonings behind it. we are told what to do and sometimes it results in blind faith, emptiness and there will come to a point when we question ourselves, why are we here in the first place?
my knowledge in faith is still very limited, and here i am now standing at this line. it is most ironical though, that this sudden injection of pursuing more is a result of meeting someone of a different faith as me. and because of that, i am relishing more in my pursuit to seek what it is to be seeked.
and to do that, i’ve to revive that thirst for the knowledge of knowledging, the contradictions and judgements.
read it with an open mind. and hopefully, your judgement is the right one.
*peace be upon you.*
