The Mileage Of “Believe” – Beyond Self
Constantly I meet people who seem to have troubles with living their lives. No, it is not the problems that they collided by chance, by luck, or by fate. Nobody is born for a destined purpose, or with unpleasant lucks. Humans are programmed for survivability, so neither could any of us remove the tendency to constantly debug a glitch in us. As an example, if we failed to digest what we ate, we belch, we feel heart burns and many health crisis soon to follow. These example of illnesses are all signs of us unknowingly trying to fix a problem within or without us.
When we are to face a problem, it is common that we act similarly. However, the fact that all these tendencies though useful at times, they do not work in all situations. The point here is, just because our instincts guided us, and even at times, our mind may not be on our side, we give in. We let nature itself, though graceful, led us into beliefs and acts that may not fix us in every situation.
If one could not understand such a fact, then mileage naught, will he or her travel.
We see only, what we want to see. We hear only, what we want to hear. We believe only, what we want to believe.
These are what gave birth to ignorance, though the purpose of such a trait to exist is our main defense to threats that we inflict upon ourselves. Bringing down self-esteem and self value from within, bringing down our walls of confidence and spirit. Destroying hopes, and will to fight for what we once were so sparked about. Threats like these are those that break a man.
Such situations are what made our lives less happy.
Why does the fact that “1+1=2” is a fact beyond questionable that no mind, no matter how brilliant it is, cannot path a way to defy it? A simple math equation like this can either be a universal truth, or the greatest hoax in the whole universe. The reason we cease to think otherwise is because we believed it. If we chose not to, and truly believe otherwise, it would seem like the biggest hoax of all time, would not it be?
Our limits are beyond like the universe. Yet, we cease to believe the never ending universe and only stargaze upon stars near our solar systems. We track for galaxies, new planets, and new neighbouring stars, when the real adventure is beyond. Our limits are only bound by us, our belief.
To succeed in breaking through, is to firstly, believe. If you believe, you will then see, what you wish to see, and hear what you want to hear. The fact that a nomad musician could not reach the world with his music is because he ceased to believe.
No matter what your thoughts are, if you do not believe them, they would be the greatest hoax. Otherwise, they would be a universal truth.
