Came to Believe…


Belief is the psychological state in which an individual holds a proposition or premise to be true.

I am always amazed how attached we are to our belief systems. It can connect or disconnect us from the world around us. We are born into our tribes which indoctrinates us into the universe we know. We BELIEVE that we are in the knowing of things and that appears to help us define who we are, but like the acts of the magician, it is only an illusion. In some, it convinces us that we are right and you are wrong.

Religion plays a powerful role in our vision of the world. Many would agree that it has been the source of centuries of conflict that has lead to much pain and suffering. We have been taught that faith is the path to freedom but I challenge my own belief systems on a regular basis.

What are you holding on to that does not serve you or the planet?

We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible. You cannot educate a man wholly out of superstitious fears which were implanted in his imagination, no matter how utterly his reason may reject them.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
US jurist (1841 – 1935)
