“Once you get going, it’s really hard to stop.”

Once you get going, it’s hard to stop.
Hard to stop trusting a witch. Hard to stop trusting your mother. Hard to stop trusting an Angel. Hard to stop listening to Heaven. Hard to stop. Because you can’t.
To stop trusting is to give up all hope, and hope is all that is left.
Hope, and dare we say Faith? How exactly DID Cas get out of Purgatory? He clearly told us that he stayed because he needed to do his penance. Yet somehow, he is here, out of purgatory, in the world, and rescued by some unknown force, presenting itself in the form of an entity named Naomi, to “Help the Winchesters. Come when they call.”
“And yes, I’m with you, if that’s alright.” Castiel says to the Winchesters, after clearly stating that he will not obey Naomi.
“Oh, ye of little faith,” said the vampire.
Faith. Faith in what is real. What appears real right now and right here, and nothing else.
Supernatural – Manifestations or events considered to be attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature.
Reality – The world or the state of things as they actually exist
Who’s to say? What is to come? Hope keeps your heart beating. Faith is the only compass.
Once you get started, it’s really hard to stop.
