Is faith based on iconic imaging or are images reflections of Faith?…..

I sit here this morning considering my faith in God.  What is it I truly believe in?  I know that I am afraid of death!  I know that no one has been able to accurately explain to me exactly what happens to me after death.  I know that I am not a stupid or wholeheartedly selfish man.  One thing that worries me is that I may have been tainted or predisposed to my beliefs before I even set out to find what they truly were.  Does your environment wholly affect your belief system or is the totality of our experiences in reality, creativity, or dreaming, the shaper of our collective FAITH.  It is Faith alone, to my mind, that helps a man along his path of evolution.  It is in faith where we can venture beyond our environments and beyond the opinions of other tainted souls.  With faith we can write the greatest story ever told, but ONLY with faith is such a thing possible.  For without faith we lack the impetus of trying, in action, to accomplish that which, in other men’s eyes, seems out of reach.  It is in Faith that we find greatness and in greatness we have the tools at our disposal, to change the world for the betterment of ALL mankind……….Yes I Am a True Believer………and yet…….I am still ONLY a man, and in THAT understanding is power……..and power does not necessarily corrupt!!  So, where does this leave me?  Still a seeker of that which men call…..the unknowable………..Perhaps……..but when it comes to Faith…….then……I am a different man because I know that the line that is drawn between life and death is within the abilty to breech.  And men are capable, so capable, that we should we be ashamed to call ourselves Believers if we don’t dare reach for the unknowable!!…..Just my opinion of course………….I am Dartanion2……..and that’s the way I see it…………cheers…………..T  xx
