Faith is unmediated knowledge
Love begins with the terrifying sense of a presence in our vicinity.
It than takes us further to exploring the options which can be only two: either to attempt a contact with this presence or avoid it.
Whichever you pick and start with you’ll end up realizing that you need both of them. You need to be alone when you fall in the trap of mistaking relationship with ownership and you have to be with the Other when the dessert of you sole presence has completed its job and brought you back on earth.
