Leap of faith

 Stop always playing safe, or playing what you might think is safe. Start exploring and take a leap of faith. A leap of faith, in its most commonly used meaning, is the act of believing in or accepting something intangible or unprovable, or without empirical evidence. But is it not very often that we as people throw ourselves into a leap of faith.. If someone talks about alternative things, different decisions or ways of thinking we as people most of the time close down our communication channel, we don't want to hear about because we are already convinced even before the person start talking that this is not something i believe in or want to listen too. So in stead of taking a leap of faith, we turn suspicious, skeptical, closed hearted, narrow minded, inflexible and stagnant.. But then my questions is who can you learn something if you always close down to your surroundings? how can you be opinionated if you never listen to anyone's opinions. And live in dark, when you can open your eyes to light? Wear the shoes of giants and start asking questions, be interested to learn, and stop always following the stream of movement because its the safest thing to do. Socrates called this movement a movement of dead fish, something stagnant in moving water. Who wants to be a dead fish..? Take a leap of faith
