What is FAITH?
Its a question that often haunts me on those lonely nights when I have nothing better to do than thinking about such mundane topics that were once the reason for many great minds to disintegrate…
According to wikipedia(I have a lot of faith in Wikipedia by the way…!)Faith is the confident belief in the truth of or trustworthiness of a person,idea,or thing. But what if what we believe in is not really known to be the truth but something we wish were true?Where does that leave our faith? We believe that the truth will set us free (Veritas vos liberabit…), but then, what is the truth except for someone somewhere interpreting some event as being part of his idea of right or wrong and documenting it for the sake of the generations to follow? It is succeeding generations that will remember this message and bear the imprint in their hearts.
No wonder many great minds over the centuries have pondered over such thoughts and, well, gone crazy!
There is no particular reason for my posing such a question, but when the time comes for man to make peace with his own mind, I guess no question is a better one than this. The answer to that is not easily obtained… but then what is life if we do not pose the right questions?
