What is a belief…?? What is the origin of a belief…?? Why did man create this concept…??
By definition exactly, a Belief is the state of mind in which a person thinks something to be the case with or without there being empirical evidence to prove that something is the case with factual certainty; but, in other words, a belief is just a thought, an idea (many times a popular idea) that the mind conceives, creates in order to be rid of confusion and the fear of not knowing something.
A belief then is an illusion, which is a thought the ego creates, a way to validate an idea and to keep the same stream of illusions alive; therefore, a fool’s paradise not based on truth and love, but based on something irrational and comforting/fear.
For example, “I believe there is a creator who created me, a masculine or feminine form who made me in his/her very image; and this masculine/feminine form has thoughts like me, so he/she knows jealousy, hate, fear, love, sex, and all the rest my human mind creates.” “And I believe aliens walk among us, they have superpowers like the ones I see in movies, and they are in contact with the governments and the Illuminati; and all this I keep reading on the internet is real, because the people who write this are ascended masters and enlightened beings in the subjects they write.” And a bunch of other beliefs out there.
But what is the basis for this…?? What is the proof for this, besides your own desire for this to be true of course…?? The activities of the human mind are pretty simple when it comes to the creation of a belief, whether its creation was a thousand years ago or a week ago:
A belief is based on fear–fear of not knowing, fear of not being popular in a crowd, fear of loneliness, fear of death, fear of the truth and its simplicity (as the mind is always seeking complex ways of understanding, something to entertain us and keep the dream flowing).
All beliefs have their origin on competition, on following, on fear of something; and these thoughts pollute the mind, no truth can actually enter the conscience because beliefs rule your life.
But in order for you to step out of your own desired world and see the reality of Creation, you must empty your mind from beliefs and rule your life by facts–not by what you have read or heard, but by something real like the very sunlight bathing your skin.
