The Wisdom of Insecurity – Alan Watts page 23
“Faith has no preconceptions; it is a plunge into the unknown. Belief clings, but faith lets go. In this sense of the word, faith is the essential virtue of science, and likewise of any religion that is not self-deception.”
Rigid beliefs are concrete structures built on foundations of fear.
In the myth of the phoenix, the phoenix has to die to enable the REBIRTH. Having been reborn, the individual has an experience which makes Faith both easy and inevitable, and there is no need or place for dogma, whatever its name.
