Let Go

faith-lets-goThanks to Fenton Johnson, who shared this quote recently from philosopher Alan Watts at the Writing by Writers conference.

Belief is the insistence that the truth is what one would like or wish it to be. Faith is the unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be. Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings; faith let’s go.
