“Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe.” -Saint Augustine
Putting religion aside, I think this beautiful quote applies to making art or any kind of change. We have no idea if the thing inside our head and heart will work. We really don’t know what exactly the thing is other than a desire, a passion, that it’s deeply important to us. So much so that we’ve decided to try and manifest it.
Faith allows to take the first step.
Faith allows us to take the next step.
Unceasing faith and belief all along the way.
Then one day, the thing becomes real.
And we (and others) get to see and experience what we originally believed was possible.
That’s the reward for our faith.
