I experienced the heart softening, opening to the wonder of life because of being in different retreat environments without the pressure of the everyday life. The senses were refined, raw and tuned into the beauty of what is. And it inspires me to try to create it more in my life. But I don’t know if it is faith ? To sit still in meditation and try to manage to quieten down the mind also open doors to other states of perception . I understand to surrender and let go will allow this soaring of the heart . The faith I have is that we have the capacity to evolve? many great teachers showed us the way and knowing in our heart the truth of their teachings is faith?
