I wanted to articulate the difference between faith and belief and checked several Youtube videos. This is the one that resonates with me the most so far.
Belief is an opinion or a judgement based on one's knowledge and experience. Which means it changes over time as we get more knowledge and experience.
Faith is a complete trust, total conviction because you know something at the deeper level. This inner knowing cannot be explained to others. So, it is quite individual and personal as the guy on the video points out.
'I am here'. This is not belief. I know I am here. No doubt about it. I am 100% sure. I need no evidence for it. I am here. Period.
Albert Einstein was once asked, "Do you believe in God?". He said, "I don't believe in God. I know he exists". This is faith.
