Belief is Dangerous
February 18, 2015
Counterfeiting the real thing can work, but the addiction to being attached to what is still a gamble is, well, a gamble. Belief is ALWAYS of the unknown. Once you know, no need to ‘believe’ anymore. The mind just knows. The substance abuser ‘believes’ that their ‘medicine’ makes them feel good with no later consequences, like being perpetually ‘stuck in unresolved issues at where you were before imbibing ‘getting high’ substances. In fact, the belief that you are becoming better is in reality, to slip further into the darkness of neglect.
We all need hope and the ability to believe. Stuck on hope and belief is treading water while storms are coming to prove hoping and believing isn’t enough but a temporary shelter from real life and love. There is a time to believe and a time to let go as children do with Santa Claus. We live in a wondrous time where more and more myths are exposed, and yet it’s understandable without education and open minds to explore the new found facts, we are doing nothing but living in the past. Belief is a crutch that sometimes is needed as you may not know how else to cope with what life brings.
Belief is a road that ends in knowing or not, and yet still your being alert to questioning the knowing without losing the joy of knowing. It’s all part of the world transitioning from the pre modern era through decades and decades of the abundance of information and technology coming faster and faster. Unfortunately, many are not prepared while nursing beliefs of yesteryear that may work somewhat, but not as much as the truth that resonates from the heart.
You sometimes can’t know until you know with the experience. From the time of infancy, we grow up testing. Some consult others who seem to know and/or use our best common sense and intelligence to ascertain the results of that which we don’t know, but believe. The notions of most everything are changing from the ‘flat earth time’ to seeing the vastness of the millions and billions of stars and galaxies that we have only begun to discover. With all that we are involved in turning the unknown and beliefs into more of a sense of ‘knowing’, it make sense that we look inside the ‘watcher’ which is you!
You are an incredible, spiritual being here to learn love and see that deep inside you are part of the perfect soul. Start by considering that as a possibility, then deciding to believe it or not. If you have a feeling that it is a belief of mystery, become the seeker with focus. In time you will see what is to know, and cast away beliefs that were blocks in the road of knowing. Love isn’t just a belief. Know it, and deep!
