Faith to Carry On

There was a time when I would have considered the ideas of faith and hope add incompatible with the Dhamma. But it is precisely at a time of transition like the one I am going through now that requires an acceptance of our state of ignorance and a faith that by putting the teachings into practice things will eventually get better. And, really, what is that if not hope?

May we strive diligently and place or trust in the Dhamma to carry is through difficulties.
