We all see the world in a aspect unique from each other, some even share their views of this world. Some are at war 24X7, while others find peace in nature’s lullaby. Some are on the run for fame,ambition to come, while others rather slug around having whatever they have. Some believe this will never change, some live daily for this change, Some believe the earth will end, while others plan for decisions a quarter century hence. There are major and minor categories we can divide the world into, but never has history since time immemorial witnessed, the greatest division etched out by Man… Faith.
What most of us fail to realize is that Faith and Tending to be faithful are two widely different concepts, specially if the Tending has a pretext of “Pre” in it.
What one might do right, will be seen as wrong with the other, and some accepted acts of chaos might be well accepted by the other. The key is to know that all our belief , no matter what the origin, no matter what the goal, never presides to preside over the other. Sure things can be different when seen through a context, just because it’s called a Hamburger, doesn’t necessarily mean it has ham in it, and know that inflammable and flammable means the same thing 🙂 thus is the fate of the world, lost in contexts and interprated by few, right or wrong, none of us can judge.
Mind you dear readers, this is not about religion, but about faith, in people, in an object , in a goal, in good or bad, even in the omnipresent. I am aiming only at the lives of one who has faith in something v/s those who don’t posses it at all.
Although they both might seem to genuine from the holistic view, there is a different we might see. Imagine a Car driven on fuel at 1 km/hr, simultaneously beside it is a car being pushed at the same speed. From standing in front of it, they both look the same. To actually find out which is running on fuel/faith and which is the other, we need to have a look from the side, in other words, alter the way we look at things, we were born in today’s world having believes which pre-dates any living person we know, just like the viewers of our “Race race” standing in the front line not knowing how the set up looks like from the side.
Faith is magnificent, like fuel, can be bent , stored, flown through any possible dimension, and just like the fluid, it can reach our inner most person , like it’s channelled into the core of the engine, and from within, from the core this fuel is burnt which drives us right through with the minimal efforts, the comforts that a car driver gets when he is sitting in one. While on the other hand, pretending to be faithful does get you through the race, for only people who do not posses an alternate view, BUT, it’s tiring, hectic, hurts you at every step, wounds only you can realise understand and bear , nothing but a moving empty shell.
At the end of this race, the faithful either wins or looses to the car that was pushed through, but he saves himself the hectic trudge, the tiring efforts and the cranky mind set over the one who actually goes through all of this to win a race which has no prize.
The whole point of faith is not proving yours is better, but it is for one to see to it that one’s life goes smooth and effortless. In the end, its for you to decide, push it through or drive all the way… 🙂
