It is extremely common for many of us to throw around the words ‘faith’ and ‘religion’ in the manner that they are one in the same, but this is a mistake with heavy consequences. For these are very different concepts, albeit fundamentally related, that require very different interpretations. Whereas faith, in its essence, is a wholly irrational act and idea, religion is the rationalization of faith (or attempt thereof). In the following text I propose that it is this rationalization, particular in Western religious thought, that results in the failure of religion as we know it. Faith, then, must be subjective, rather than objective, to achieve its ultimate goal of personal peace and infinite passion.

I myself find this wisdom in nature.
