Belief

Expand The Horizon

A belief is having trust, faith and confidence in something or someone. It is one of the internal feelings which contribute in shaping our way of thinking and our perception too. When our belief changes, it changes our thinking and perception too. A belief is like a slide at a water park. If you fight it, you are just going to hurt yourself. You have to realize yourself that which slide to choose, which slide to ride, which slide to face, and which slide would be better. You are the one who chooses the slide and your mind is what helps you by giving you the options of what slide you want to ride on. Fighting a belief could be frustrating and would not lead to nowhere; so if you find yourself in such a situation of fighting against your belief then it’s always better to give up that belief…

Food for Thought #8

Expand The Horizon

When we are so hooked up in our beliefs, our ways of thinking, and our habits, we can’t seem to see or do anything outside of our comfort zone. When our views and habits are so rigid, inflexible, and hard to break, it seems like changing of anything is impossible or impractical, and having a better society or anything other would seem impractical too.

But here the question is – how to see beyond this line of impracticality?

Letting ourselves to figure out delusion and reality would be good but then we are so deeply conditioned by our environment, which consists of culture, education, belief systems and societal constructs ranging from gender ideas to assumptions on human nature. Our entire economic doctrines are built under the assumption that humans are inherently selfish or greedy. So how are we to make sense of what is real, what is practical, what is…

Trapped Within Our Own Minds

Trapped within our own minds with delusions, we cannot read others, but in desperation for the answers we lead beliefs that we do, and hence, we surround ourselves with more illusions. First step to be followed is to free our minds from the chamber of delusions and strive to know our own selves more but the question is how when most of us are so conditioned and remain confined by society, belief, culture, media, situation, education which has in some way obstructed our thinking with preconceptions, fears and anxieties?

Trapped within our own Minds with Delusions

Food for Thought #1

When we are so hooked up in our beliefs, our ways of thinking, and our habits, we can’t seem to see or do anything outside of our comfort zone. When our views and habits are so rigid, inflexible, and hard to break, it seems like changing of anything is impossible or impractical, and having a better society or anything other would seem impractical too.

But here the question is – how to see beyond this line of impracticality?

Letting ourselves to figure out delusion and reality would be good but then we are so deeply conditioned by our environment, which consists of culture, education, belief systems and societal constructs ranging from gender ideas to assumptions on human nature. Our entire economic doctrines are built under the assumption that humans are inherently selfish or greedy. So how are we to make sense of what is real, what is practical, what is possible when our entire environment is built on layers of beliefs?

First step would be to let our thoughts to be flexible and mind open to understand freely,  there is a reality beyond the construct of the mind and as long as we live within the confines of the ego mind we cannot conceive of a reality that is beyond what we assume is practical or impractical living, we take our sorrow and confusion to be necessary and inevitable. We don’t think beyond it, we don’t look to end it.

Our practical world today is a horror show. Not generalizing but our education hinders learning, our doctors destroy health, our media sells us lies, our food is poisoned, our resources are running scarce, there is so much poverty and destruction and we live in such a way where an elite few are prosperous while the majority beat each other over nonsensical ideals and labels.

Food for thought:

Any man who points out this madness would seem radical – change yourself and the world will change on its own.

Random Thought

If we all knew about the politics and how the system is actually failing or has failed there’d be a revolution before sunrise. The reason the struggle is real is because the revolution is not and the reason the revolution is not is because we are happier liking pretentious nice things that require no thinking or responsibility.

Responsibility, Fault, Learn

I just don’t get people’s negativity, to the point that they blame all the external factors whether it be other people or be the world around them. Things they have no control of yet let these things control their mood, thinking and reality. How is that going to help, will it?

No one is responsible for our own misery as much as we ourselves and moreover most of the time solution lies in ourselves, in our perception and in our ability to take responsibility regardless of whether or not we are at fault. Have courage, take responsibility, accept your fault if any, strive for best if you really want to and keep learning; blaming and finding others fault won’t be of any use to resolve our own personal things.

Blaming other is easy but accepting our own fault is not. Understand yourself first to be at peace with yourself, it will make you better equipped to face the world. That’s what I think to which some might agree and some might not probably due to their own reasons and experiences.

Belief

A belief is having trust, faith and confidence in something or someone. It is one of the internal feelings which contribute in shaping our way of thinking and our perception too. When our belief changes, it changes our thinking and perception too. A belief is like a slide at a water park. If you fight it, you are just going to hurt yourself. You have to realize yourself that which slide to choose, which slide to ride, which slide to face, and which slide would be better. You are the one who chooses the slide and your mind is what helps you by giving you the options of what slide you want to ride on. Fighting a belief could be frustrating and would not lead to nowhere; so if you find yourself in such a situation of fighting against your belief then it’s always better to give up that belief with a change, be free from it; give up a belief which no longer serves you and makes sense to you.

Whereas fear is a lack of belief or faith in something or someone but actually there no such thing as lack of belief, it itself is a belief in believing lack of belief, there is only abundance when we look it in regard of beliefs. The reason why fear feels bad is because when you are in fear, your belief is not in alignment with your higher self. We all are naturally abundant in beliefs, you will experience a lack of belief only till the point you realize how you are all surrounded by beliefs. Sometimes, all we have to do is just investigate our beliefs and logically work out how our beliefs are serving us, and if they are not then create a new conscious belief that feels good to think about and makes much more sense.

In the end, I would say, it’s better to give up a belief which feels obsolete to us than fighting it, and by giving up a belief I mean to say change your belief. Yes! Change your belief instead fighting against it and that would be the way to go, we cannot be lack of belief as there is no such thing as lack of belief. Beliefs are infinite, if not one then there is other to fit in, choosing the better is essential to expand our horizons.
