I used to know someone who had a cute nickname for me. He used to call me “the pragmatic prophet.” I liked it not because I identified with the word “prophet” (I don’t) but because – loosely said – it represented the two sides of my brain. I am deeply spiritual, but I am also very pragmatic. You might think these two would tend to duke it out in my mind, but honestly, they like each other. They get along.
One of the times where I am most aware of the two sides cooperating, is when my faith that something good will happen might be seen as irrational to someone else. I was going to call this blog “The Power of Unshakeable Faith” but I’m pragmatic enough to know that most people would either consider my unwavering belief that things tend to work out as either admirable or foolish.
Here’s how the two sides of my brain talk to one another:
Pragmatic Rad (PR): Well, that didn’t go as planned.
Spiritual Rad (SR): No, but there has to be a reason for it and it will be okay.
PR: Hm. You’re sure?
SR: Absolutely. 100%.
PR: I’m playing scenarios over here and most of them don’t look so great.
SR: I know. Thank you for always looking out for us. But what’s the alternative? Settle in to expecting the worse? How does that help us?
PR: Being prepared helps us.
SR: Okay. So, you’ve got a backup plan. Cool. But I’m staying on the side of faith. This all means something. It’s all going to be okay. I just know it.
PR: Alright. I’ll go along. You’re right that expecting the best is better than wallowing in expecting the worst. So, I’m in. But I’m watching.
SR: You watch. I’ll pray.
There are parts of my existence that almost feel to me as though the Divine said “Well. You chose a wild ride. But here, you’re going to need faith or you’ll get off course. Take an extra helping.” Having that unshakeable (irrational) determination that the Universe loves me and that everything will work out is a gift. I’m a very humble person, but that aspect of myself blows my mind. I think that’s why when Pragmatic Rad talks to Spiritual Rad, Pragmatic Rad always concedes. Practical Rad is in awe of that.
The Law of Attraction is a concept that says that what we focus our thoughts upon is what we will attract into our lives. It puts the power to manifest a happy outcome or a challenging outcome smack dab into our own hands. Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not, it still stands to reason that holding hope and faith in your heart for the future is going to make you infinitely happier than holding on to doubt and despair. Even if things don’t wind up going the way you had hoped.
Faith is powerful. Whether it’s unshakeable or irrational, it’s a super power. Make it yours.
