KEEPING THE FAITH
Last month’s article, “Trust versus Doubt,” was so popular, we will build further on this theme for this month’s article.
In case you haven’t noticed, the world continues to go through incredible changes but this is because consciousness continues to go through incredible changes. In other words, the world is merely mirroring what we all are going through in consciousness. It was never just a fad to talk about things like “The Prophecies of Nostradamus” or the “Shifts of 2012.” All of these changes are completely true and authentic and they are happening now. The world as we know it continues to shift. We are literally shifting from living in a third dimensional universe with a thrid dimensional consciousness toward higher dimensions and higher levels of consciousness. Examples of the evidence and symptoms of this shift in consciousness vary from positive (experiencing profound synchronicities) to negative (watching the relationships we once knew, fall apart and disappear).
Currently, one of the most common things people are asking about, in workshops and in private sessions, is why so many people who were formerly close friends or partners and so forth, are seemingly shifting away from love and beginning to act so irrationally, possibly attacking others unnecessarily. And if so many people are finding this to be true, why is it happening? It’s because we are all having our faith tested . . . not the usual “test of faith” that is often attributed to God, such as when we are told that “God is testing our faith in Him.”
Instead, the tests that we are experiencing are actually related to our ability to maintain faith in who God is, who we are, and who others are. In other words, what we are all going through at this time is simply a test that calls us to remain faithful in our ability to know the Divinity of God, as well as the divinity of ourselves and others. Many people in our lives might be acting “insanely” but we are called to nevertheless remember that the insanity is not who they are–even though it is was they are doing. If they act insanely, that would merely be the insane, ego part of them behaving as such. And since it’s their insane, ego self that is doing this, we might not expect anything else but insanity to come from them. Our test is to know that beneath their insane behavior is their true essence and we are asked to affirm the presence of this true essence–despite their behaviors. Now this doesn’t mean we have to enable their behavior or “move in” with them, but it does mean that we have to love them–even if we choose to say goodbye to them.
When Jesus spoke of us having faith, he was not referring to the usual “blind faith” in God that fundamental churches ask us to have. Instead, Jesus was imploring us to PRAY to know the true Divinity of all beings, then to have FAITH that this Divinity is so, and lastly to then TRUST that we will see and experience the incredible results of maintaining such conviction. This is the only way we can say that we have “passed our test.”
A Course in Miracles says, “Holiness cannot BE SEEN except through faith, and your relationship is not holy if your faith in one another is limited.”
And when the New Testament told us that “Faith is the conviction behind things hoped for and the belief in things not yet seen,” it was not actually suggesting that we are to have faith that “the things we are praying for will eventually manifest.” Instead, it was saying that instead of focusing our prayers on material things, we should focus them on “things unseen,” which meant to focus our prayers on spiritual things–attributes of God–such as Love. 
Of course faith should not be confused with having a careless trust in potentially harmful people or things. Instead, healthy trust comes from having a faith in the true identity of God, Self, and Others. And if/when we begin to doubt, it means we are being faithless and not trusting in who God is nor who we (or others) are. The solution is to return to the first step of praying to remember everyone’s true self. Then we need to restore our faith in the Divine Identity of all beings. And if/when others are not choosing to align with this identity, we are asked to “shake off the dust (residue)” of the experience and walk away but without losing the faith that in their core, everyone is still Divine and all will return to sanity as soon as they choose to do so. In the meantime, we are called to affirm the identity that they themselves may have forgotten. And in so doing, we also rise to a new level (a higher dimension) than we have ever been.
Love & Light, Michael Mirdad

Very inspiring and wonderful service. The meditation was very powerful and energizing. At the end I felt uplifted…. Maybe the love of the angels??? I would like to say too, the chanting from the bhakti yoga was very, very beautiful!!!
Thank you Michael !!!!
–P.D
I listened to Michael’s Sacred Service “Real World” and it confirmed for me, that in relation to my personal and professional life, I need to leave gossip behind and stay focused on doing good work. If everyone listened to just this one video, so much pain and suffering could be removed from everyday living. I am so grateful that Michael has put this library of his teachings up for us all to tap into. Such great works of wisdom!!
