Faith is like fresh clean water in nature. Beliefs are like bottled water by different companies.

Faith is like a strong tree rooted in solid ground. It is firm and steady. Belief is like a fragile leaf blown away by the touch of strong wind. Faith is like an anchor that keeps us grounded and balanced. Beliefs are like clouds. They float around and change. Faith is like the clear sky. My beliefs change as I age. Faith is changeless.
I may believe in someone for some time in some situations but disbelieve in other situations. I have faith in my folks and friends who love me unconditoinally and selflessly. I also love people who help others selflessly, who relate to others without any strings of self-will and selfishness. This is Karma Yoga, a divine way of living. I trust them, respect them, and bow to them. Living this way fills the cup of my life with deep satisfaction, contentment, serenity, and bliss.
May we all cultivate the divine way of living, living truthfully, faithfully and gracefully!
