How to have faith in mystery
June 30, 2010
Hosted by Andrea Mathews
We generally define faith as a kind of knowing—we believe strongly and therefore trust. Some of us were raised in traditional religious backgrounds in which that kind of faith was considered to be essential to our final post-life ascendance into heaven. And that kind of elegant influence has been around for so many centuries now that it is archetypal—it impacts us in deep unconscious ways that we may not even understand. Further, even when we begin to wonder if that definition of faith is really true, it still nags at us, as if that understanding of faith has somehow become cellular. Mostly this means that mystery has the power to shatter our grounding so that our first response to it is to try to define and explain it. But, what if we were to learn that it is leaning into the mystery that is actually faithful? What if we began to settle into the deeper regions of ourselves only when we can acknowledge what we don’t know? Tune in to learn how to have faith in mystery.
