Beliefs

"No beliefs are true. They're beliefs.
A belief system is something you have faith in regardless of the evidence. That's why all belief systems are equally valid and invalid.
Therefore they're all deserving equal respect. Little or none. ...Even if a belief system is accurate to the way the universe works, it's still a belief system. That's its trap."

  3. Beliefs are highly over-rated, I believe. And insidious.

  5. Beliefs can change when I tell myself a new story about an event or value. (and that is a good thing! :-) I have had to take some long hard looks at the stories)

  7. Hi Surjit,
    I am so glad to finally be home. I was away for quite a while.

    I too have changed many of my beliefs as I have grown older and studied more.

    As a child you are told what to believe by your parents.

    It is then our responsibility to mature and try to seek out what we actually do or don't believe.

    As always a very insightful post!
    God Bless

  9. Truthful words. Very thoughtful. Believing is one thing, and knowing something to be true is another thing. You shouldn't be satisfied with believing somebody who says a city is beautiful, you have to go to the city and see it for yourselves.

    Cheers.. have a wonderful day!
