Blind Faith

We all got fantastic lives but there are times when we face odds and than we seek refuge in "something". This "something" has got infinite names and appearances, however in reality it has no physical existence. 
But we always fall for it and take a leap of faith whenever needed and without an exception every single time we survive. This faith in "something" gives us enormous energy to fight off any possible opponent. 

Apparently, this Blind Faith gives most visible n most felt results. 
Strange but true. 


I wonder 
What's the power behind ??
Which makes us
believe some non-sense.
But we derive 
a sense out of it
and unwind. 
Gather courage
to flip the game 
confusion, chaos 
get it
arranged, aligned.
No one knows
if its illogical 
or creatively designed.
The process,
a mystery 
something beyond
mankind.
Still we believe it 
like an ardent student 
or I can say it
like a blind.

  4. Life is all about making sense out of non-sense you know .. ;)
    And beautifully expressed .. “And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth,
    "You owe me."
    Look what happens with love like that.
    It lights up the sky.”
    ― Rumi

  7. Blind faith is the result of ignorance and lack of realistic thinking.But,true faith develops as the awareness grows.Understanding faith is the understanding of 'shiv',kalyan.

  8. faith is in believing that which we can not yet see...faith is not for the faint of heart for sure...if realist i could look at thestate of the world these days and perhaps do something drastic, but faith allows me to see beyond the present circumstances...

  9. I believe in faith that flows from within, and from outside ourself, hard to pinpoint and describe actually.

    Take care of yourself. Education is more important...happy day ~

  10. Indeed, call it blindness or just call it faith, but there has to be something, some entity that drives this courage in our veins that someone is watching over, and ensuring our well being.

    Nice post.

  12. Blind faith works most of the time...probably our heart, or the sub-conscious, knows the best...

  14. Absolutely right...I like the way you put this blind faith in a poetic way. !!..

  15. I dont believe there is power behind.. its all within our thoughts. the more we believe the more we start taking things easily and get good results..

    not the power does it. I think so :)

  16. Blind faith. Maybe it is more luck than anything else? Some say we are the image of God. Some say that is not true. We know or are led to believe that God is perfect and does not make any mistakes. Whole religions are based on the perfect God and his perfect creation.

    The last person I met who believed this and that he was perfect also happened to wear glasses. I guess so he could see his eyes were not perfect.

  19. power, the process... i love this as a subject and how you sculpted it.
    much of what i creatively design is illogical:)

  20. personally i feel there is a very thin line between faith and blind faith, bcoz for me, when we start having full faith in something or someone then at some point of time it is bound to become a blind faith.....Thoughtful post.....

    plz do concentrate on ur university activities and take sometime in between for us too....thank you.

  21. Love this post Jyoti...it could not be more significant...this is a time when we all need Faith...I love your phrase " The process a Mystery, something beyond mankind"...that is the essense of Faith...even in the Mystery we follow what we can not see and in the doing our Spirits are raised. So happy to see you on Ravenmyt...and like you, I am so far behind on my blog reading. Great post...Always...

  26. a mystic & miraculous fact of human life which , without any symptom, captures one's destiny and only smiles on slavery of man kind.. Interesting..........

    ReplyDelete
  27. I suppose that's why it's called 'blind' faith because we believe in what we can't see but, our faith has us believing.
    A very deep, thought provoking write from you!

  43. Faith in one self and faith in God. Without faith in both we will be nowhere, reach nowhere, achieve nothing. Since God has given us a questioning mind, it doesn't mean that we should misuse it and propagate false information. Age old wisdom should not be questioned but accepted with blind faith. What was good for our forefathers is also good for us. All our questioning has led to advancement but at the same time there is complete breakdown of law and order, terrorism, powerful looting the poor, innocents being killed divorces, infanticide and so on because there are uncouth people who have no fear of God.

    Best wishes,
    Joseph

  44. Love is blind! and Faith is always absolute !

  45. Jyoti,

    It is human nature to turn to God when situation goes against them. Then we start with all kinds of acts to please God for help. That is blind faith. One should not lose faith in first self and then God, if one believes in, at all times. One should face what life throws with calm attitude of HUM HONGE QAMYAAB.

    Take care

    PS : Finally read all beautiful poems and left comments from Freedom or Slave onwards.

  47. That's the beauty of faith. Everybody believes in something different.. but the essence of it and the end results are the same. It is something beyond us... and as much as we would sometimes like to solve the mystery.. its best if we trust blindly! Nice one!

  50. Faith helps in tiding over troubles...makes the journey easier..but there is no logic to it.Beautiful weave.

  51. Faith and Hope are the only things that keep us alive and only the one who lives by faith, writes/talks about faith :)

    what fascinates me more is 'what you choose to write about' than 'what' you write.
