Personally, I don't subscribe to an either/or philosophy. Also, neither "control" nor "faith" particularly inspire me. But I am inspired by Dynamic Willingness and Surrender, which might be considered to be shades of control and faith.
The difference would be: Dynamic Willingness surrenders the illusion of and need for control by my avatar, and at the same time, plays a directed and powerful game. Using Dynamic Willingness, I am steering and guiding my life in the direction of feeling good on purpose, while allowing that there are feeling-good destinations that I don't know I don't know. So I'm captaining my own ship, but I'm also safe and supported, whatever port or storm I find myself in.
And Surrender is a little different from faith, for me, simply because faith to me implies a personal, interventionist god, and also in my experience there is some struggle against and "problem" with faith, even without a god, but the choice of Surrender is actually letting go of struggle and "problems".
Anyway, I like both Dynamic Willingness and Surrender, and I don't find them to be mutually exclusive. They work pretty well in living a life I love.
That's just me.
