When You Know

Today’s post comes from my second book Wise Words.  It applies to both people and situations.  It can apply to having faith in God or faith in the way people will act.  It also of course applies to the experience of God, the Universe, people and situations.

“When You Have Experience, You Know That You Know, That You Know.  When You Don’t Have Experience You Don’t Know, That You Don’t Know, That You Don’t Know.”

In the Power of Myth, Bill Moyers asked Joseph Campbell if he was a man of faith.  Joseph Campbell replied “I don’t have to have faith I have experience.”

Faith is very powerful, it has been called the evidence of things not seen.  Experience however, is seeing for yourself and seeing is believing.  Seeing for yourself is even more powerful than having faith.  On the spiritual path we are encouraged to do what we have to do in order to have the experience for ourselves.  Then we have gone beyond faith, we have gone beyond belief, now we know.
