Faith is not a science
Yet it seeks to invoke wisdom
and understanding
Faith is not a nature
Yet it desires to shape our reactions
and our very way of life
Faith is not a perception
Yet it expects to find within us a sense of responsiveness
and familiarity
Then what is Faith...
Faith is an intimate truth
Let it reveal who you are
and what you will become
on life’s long journey
Faith is a sacred longing
Let it uncover life’s many layers
in depths previously unimaginable
revealing your most fulfilling treasures
Faith is an unyielding ache
Let it touch you flooding your senses
with overwhelming fealings
of rapture, serenity, and splendor
What need have I of Faith...
Faith is loves pure essence
Enveloping the object of its affection in its nurturing embrace
A gift which can manifest wholly by itself
The abstract and the realized
In ways that can only be understood
By the heart
What is it you believe in dear traveler
Where have you placed Your Faith
Are you aware yet of its value
For where you have placed it
There your own heart and treasure will be

“Your heart understood mine. In the depth of the fragrant night, I listened with ravished soul to your beloved voice. Your heart understood mine.”

It originates from the French opera: "Les pêcheurs de perles" (The Pearl Fishers)

Extremely good, a window into the process of faith, belief, experience, and consequence, the need of love, to be known...
