"FAITH" Rule #7 of Chivalry

"FAITH" Rule #7 of "Knights Code of Chivalry"

"Sometimes to understand more, you need to know less."

"FAITH" is defined as complete trust or confidence in someone or something. We have to be very careful with this one in a world where logic and proof can provide statistics of real results, and people can deceive us to gain for themselves. Even though faith may be a power that can strengthen us when logic and facts fail, we have to be very careful of who or what we choose to have faith in. Blind faith in the wrong thing can be childish and self destructive. So how do we choose what to have faith in? Here are some measures that have helped me to choose the right people and things to have faith in. They have worked so well that my faith is absolute. Maybe they can guide you.

Before we can choose what to have real faith in we first have to choose what we are willing to sacrifice for our faith. Contrary to the beliefs of many, faith is a two way street, not a one way. We have to allow that which we have faith in to have faith in us or we will jump ship an abandon at the first sign of trouble. Our loyalty strengthens our faith. But sometimes that which we have faith in may not want to give us what we want at that moment because it may have a different plan for us. Can you have faith in that?

The next thing that we want to define is "WHY" we should have faith in that which we pick? I personally choose my service of faith in that which guides me to be a good person to myself and others. I chose my spiritual beliefs, friends, and even activities with this as the headliner. If it is self serving or harmful to me or others, I avoid it.

This has come in VERY handy throughout my life. Whenever I have been faced with ANYTHING that is bringing harm to me or others through me, I pray to my creator to remove it from my life. And the results are always immediate and almost magical. Sometimes I can not believe how fast and powerful it occurs. It's as if the wind grabs a broom and sweeps all of the garbage out of me and my life. That which I have chosen to have faith in definitely has proven to have faith in me.

The flipside of this coin is that I don't have faith that everything that I pray or ask for to be granted to me simply because I want it. To me that is behaving like a child. I have faith that a higher power that is far more intelligent than I am, will make better decision for me than I can whether I like it or not. When I don't get what I ask for I change the way that I view my situation while maintaining faith that I am being guided in a proper direction. I have created a personal ideology that helps me to stay focused on my path in a mature and loyal manner that reads as such...


To allow faith to function at its highest ability, our expectations of what it can bring can not be self serving. There has to be a bigger picture that is worth our sacrifice towards that which we have faith in. This will fuel our desire to be faithful and it will strengthen the act of faith itself.

We shouldn't feel that we are the most powerful thing in our life and the lives of those surrounding us. Heck, the weather itself proves us wrong daily if we think that. Having faith when logic and facts aren't there to assure us, allows us to go further than we would have gone. And we must remember that everything that was proven as logic or fact, started off with faith in it. Faith allows us to do the things that "shouldn't" be doable. Faith allows us to be more than we are supposed to be. Faith is a superhuman power.
