In the last blog we understood how to control thoughts? How to settle the mind down?
The answer is simple.
Tame the demon or the demon tames you 🙂
Just keep this restive chap busy !
This blog talks mostly on belief systems and how it drives to what we perceive.
Imagine as a kid, the first time you saw a vessel on the stove , you were tempted to touch it. The willingness to touch the vessel eventually dissolved. This is primarily because of two reasons :
1. You touched the vessel sometime, burnt your hand, ended up hurting yourself.
2. Your parents rebuked you or maybe advised you not to do so.
Over then you developed a belief of not touching a hot vessel, because you might end up hurting yourself.
Now, let’s try to magnify this little example over our life.
Just like the child who was innocent about the situation made a belief on two basis. First being his experience and second being the relying on the experience of his/her trusted ones. In a similar manner, our belief systems evolve from either our experiences or induced experiences of people we hold trust in.
And for that matter, even the people whose beliefs have been conducted us, have formed them from yet another group of people they trusted in.
This is how the belief system evolves.
Newton’s law states that Everything is relative and nothing absolute, which applies to real life too.
Let’s look at this carefully.
Person A has a dataset DA of his experiences and induced experiences. Person B also a dataset DB of his experiences and induced experiences. Now, faced by the same situation, person A forms a belief based on his DA and person B forms a belief on his DB. They might overlap, They might be completely opposite or they might be the same(which is rare). Thence, the belief turns out to be relative and not absolute.
Things are comparable when they our absolute or rather on the same ground. Now, if the grounds are different, there lies no place for comparison.
Thence, belief is not comparable.
Corollary: Belief is neither questionable nor enforceable.
Hope you have understood what I intend to say. If not, feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com
Would be elaborating on this, so follow me and be updated.
Happy Exploring ! 🙂
