Beyond the Power of Reason

Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe.


This quote itself is a test of faith. It’s feels like such a bold statement and I needed it!

Beyond the power of reason to believe. Wow. It’s interesting because reason can only bring you so far in this life. There comes a point when you must suspend reason to truly understand our universe. Like in Kafka’s bug story, when we refuse to accept things outside of reason, we leave behind things that are valuable to us, whether we’re willing to admit their value or not. (This analogy only works if you’ve read Kafka’s, The Metamorphosis. Thank you Project Gutenberg for providing access to free ebooks) I won’t give away too much of the story but the point is, faith is a part of this journey called life.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
