The question of what faith is and how to practice it often comes up during an analysis or in the process of coaching?
My response is always to ask “if there is a tower” it could be for example the Cologne Cathedral tower, where over 700 steps take you up to the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, where you don’t even know which is up and which is down :o)) – well, “if there is a tower, then will you go up to the top to lookout at the view or just to experience being way up there?” Every single time, the answer is “yes!”
My next question after this “yes” is that the spiral staircase leading to the tower is held by a column, isn’t it?” The answer is usually a nod of the head.
I continue my questions with “do you see all the steps in the staircase leading up to the tower, especially the next one behind the column? The answer is inevitably “no”.
“Despite this fact, do you start your way up to the tower?” – I ask. The answer, without exception, is “yes”.
So, there is always just one question left – “if you have taken the first two-three steps, do you see the next one(s), which were thus far out of sight?” At this point, they always smile and say “of course”.
Well, faith is exactly the same way when you start on a new Path. You don’t necessarily see the next step after the first few because they are still behind the column. BUT! they are always behind the column, just keep going … upwards to the top of the Tower! :o))
In western culture, a lot of people think that the statement “everything is good the way it is” only means that this – sorry for the expression – comfortable shit is good, I won’t change anything, it is certain and I can handle it. But in fact though, this sentence means that WHEN you take that first step upwards to the tower via this spiral staircase, the next step always appears from behind the column and will be visible. When you take the first step, you will see that. However, if you don’t move, it will always be invisible. Of course, it is everyone’s own choice – rule over your Life and make use of your abilities and capabilities or resign yourself to the way things are.
Many of you now probably think that it is easy for me. I’ll let you in on a little secret, I too learned it the hard way, through sweat and tears, BUT it was worth it! The next step was always there, I just didn’t want to believe it at first. Then I began to consciously pay attention, learn and move forward. I love my New Life and I wouldn’t change it with the Old one for anything. And I am still going upwards on that spiral staircase, because the starry sky is the limit! :o))) Truly! When I do feel a little uncertain, I always remind myself that “the next step is there behind the column, just keep going!” Take a deep breath and GO … :o)))
PS.: For those of you who already have an astroscope (ancient horoscope), it is worth paying attention to those areas and aspects that are affected by Jupiter, because its energy can be raised more easily from now on.
