I came to believe

Richard Francisco's avatar Richard Francisco

For some, maybe all of us, there will come a time in our lives that we reach a point of desperation. We find ourselves trapped in a cycle of living that no longer works. Some of us have turned to a spiritual way of living as an answer. To find a spirituality that can transform ones former existence into a life worth living I was once told, “There is only one key, and it is called willingness.” Once unlocked by willingness, the door opens almost of itself, and looking through it, we shall see a pathway besides which there is and inscription. It reads: “This is the way to a faith that works.” This statement had a profound impact on me. Being a person of faith and a spiritual seeker I realized it is not the quantity of faith one has, but the quality of it. It is only natural, as an artist, for me to draw on the things that have inspired me the most. Having had a spiritual awakening, “I came to believe”.
