Faith is strong trust in self and life even in the face of evidence to the contrary. Like belief, it consists more in love than knowledge, or perhaps it is just that love takes precedence.

It is born and nurtured in the area of the third eye, the open heart, and the sensitivity of an ear tuned to mystery.
