Believe It or Not

It is fascinating to see and to understand how we human beings work our human energy consciousness system. Nobody taught us; nobody gave us a workshop when growing up; nobody lectured us on the ins and outs of our energy fields and how we connect to each other’s systems.  Yet, we have learned very early on to modify, change, and restrict our energy system.  For example, we adopt a belief, we even make it our own.  This one belief will then form our thoughts, influence our feelings, control our speech and actions, and ultimately shape our lives.

Now, in the course of growing up from the time we take our first breath, throughout childhood, adolescence and into early adulthood, we learn from our parents, from friends, school and authority figures, from our environment, community, culture, religion, and the global human community.  We learn how to think, how to live, how to speak, and how to process life events.  We learn how to interpret reality.  This interpretation is imprinted onto our psyche in the form of beliefs and we live our beliefs; we become our beliefs, we are our beliefs.

World-renowned author Byron Katie says:

“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.”
