The "rational" mind is a tool whose foundation is the perception of distinction and separation. It is incapable of seeing beyond itself to a larger awareness that flows from a grand unity--the indivisble, Oneness. It sees heads, it sees tails, but is blind to the coin itself.

Faith is a bad word to the "rational" mind because it seems to be the ultimate absurdity. Faith does not make sense. It does not make sense because it is beyond sense. Beyond the capacity of the thinking mind--beyond the capacity of the tool.

A hammer is a tool. I wield the hammer, the hammer does not wield me.
What sense can a hammer make of the infinite? It only deals in boundaries and limitation.

Circular discussions are a soothing balm to the thinking mind. It is fruitless to argue with one's tools.
Until one is ready to explore the "absurd" there is only the veil.

Isn't faith a "groundless or inexplicable" belief? I mean if you ask religious men how they know an ultimate being exist, most of them will tell you to have faith. It's like saying, Faith = "I have no explaination for that"
