The power of belief is one of the most powerful forces placed in the minds of men! Think about all mankind has done, or failed to do, both good and bad, that are based on the power of belief! The range is mind blowing! From suicide and murder, to putting men on the moon! All are based on belief! A confidence in a person or thing.
So how confident are you ?
Obviously it depends on what you believe. What you believe, depends largely on the environment or culture you inhabit. As we talked about in the last post.
Can those things change?
Only if you want them to!
How much they change depends on your willingness to be aware of things around you and the confidence in yourself to have an effect.
What if you run away from your problems hoping that a new environment will change your circumstances? Will that create change?
That also depends. Have you changed your beliefs enough so that your environment is no longer fitting?
Or; Are you attempting to escape from a situation so you don’t have to deal with it!?
Be honest with yourself! Otherwise you will bring your problems with you!
Even if your situation is dangerous!
Obviously you should leave such a situation to avoid harm. But without changing the belief systems that created it in the first place, that situation will find you again. I know! I’ve tried it! LOL 😉 This is what addiction intervention programs do.
Consider the contrast between a street bum, and a C.E.O. of a large company. How each person made a decision based on knowledge, or lack thereof.
How does belief play a role here?
Since confidence in a person or thing defines belief, it would make sense that a CEO would have better confidence in himself.
It may also be concluded that he has had a better environmental background to foster the confidence to reach that position.
Environments can be changed as well as beliefs. So could a street bum become a CEO?
Sure! If his power of belief becomes strong enough to foster confidence in himself, he will eventually foster belief in him from others. As this happens, his environment changes in proportion to the belief systems he has. Each time his beliefs no longer match his environment, he will either seek or attract an environment that does match his new belief.
These are the fundamentals principles of the Law of Attraction!
The reverse is also true.
If a CEO loses his confidence, his beliefs have changed and his environment will deteriorate accordingly.
But! The CEO has a distinct advantage! He knows he can reach that position based on past experience. This makes it easier for him to climb again because he’s done it before. He KNOWS how to do it. Therefore, if he rekindles his confidence based on that experience, his path will be easier.
Much like any task or journey, frequency breeds the confidence necessary for its completion.
IMPACT OF KNOWLEDGE ON BELIEF.
As we’ve seen so far; belief has a huge impact on mankind as a whole, as well as individually.
From success to religion; our beliefs can make us or break us.
The making of us, depends on the knowledgeable way in which belief has its effect. By believing in a certain way we also act a certain way. Our hopes are determined by our beliefs. Our accomplishments and deeds are based on this single thing.
Perhaps this us what is truly meant by “walk by faith not by sight”. Is not our sight (The perception of our world) effected by our beliefs?
How does history make this point?
The knowledge and technology we have today far outstrips what we knew in the past. But we are also relearning ancient knowledge long forgotten or hidden. What impact will that have on daily life?
For more on this please watch this video by Dr. Bruce Lipton on the biology of belief.
If that video didn’t raise the hair on your neck please check for a pulse!
Now do you think beliefs have an impact on you?
Did that change your beliefs in any way?
How did that happen!?
New information was brought to your awareness!
Now you have some choices To make!
You can Ignore it, or you can act on it.
If you act on it, how will you do so?
Even If you choose to ignore it, the knowledge cannot be undone and will have an effect! Belief or not! Sorry! LOL
The Formula of belief
So far, we’ve seen that belief impacts environment and knowledge impacts belief. Which in turn, also impacts environment.
B = E (K=NB) NB+K= E squared.
In other words….
Belief = Environment.
(Knowledge = New Beliefs)
New Beliefs plus Knowledge effects Environment exponentially!
(Don’t worry it took me a while to wrap my brain around that one too! And I came up with this formula! YIKES!)
But as an added bonus, the new environment also effects the preceding two!
So we get a wheel effect that moves us forward! (or backward as we talked about above)
I’d say that’s pretty exciting stuff!
But there’s a problem here! If that’s true, why are we not further along in creating the Utopian world we all hope for? Where Love and peace are all that’s known!?
You don’t really expect that I have the answer do you?
But I think maybe; if we ALL work at examining ourselves and what we believe and add knowledge along the way; that question will be answered at some point.
I also think (OK, I confess! I believe! ) we are looking for the answers in the wrong places! But the evidence for that belief will be made clear as you read. Maybe you’ve already seen the “evidence” I’m pointing to!
That by looking outside ourselves for answers. as we are prone to do, we will always come up empty!
INSPIRATION is the key!
Inner knowledge is of utmost importance and is the responsibility of each individual. My evidence being history and the human behavior examined thus far. Which to my eyes is substantial!
Would you agree?
