A leap of faith

Mirrors of Encounters

His comment:
“The “leap of faith” you referred to resembles gambling because you are not 100% in on the outcome. Until you actually get the outcome. That’s probably why you couldn’t provide proof for me.”

My answer:
We are reluctant to investigate for ourselves, aren´t we…?
Cause if we unfold the path to self-discovery, we are never certain of the outcome.
We might win or lose…

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
