A Non-Theistic Definition of Faith?

Chogyam Trungpa + Meister Eckhart = QotD.

Chogyam Trungpa:

Buddha in your heart is a symbol of faith: you could be immaculate and perfect, as perfect as Shakyamuni Buddha himself. That
possibility already exists in you.

In this case, faith has nothing to do with praying to somebody. Faith is a sense of dignity.The Christian mystic Meister Eckhart talks about faith in the sense of being awake: being present and mindful and aware of the situation.

Faith is seeing things as they are—whatever that might be—precisely, directly, and without any hesitation.
