Yes, it is disconcerting to read that everything you judge others capable of, is what you know you are capable of, in a very, very real sense. Of course, this knowing is not at the conscious level… and you will use every resistance technique there is in the book, to deny this statement. Remember, you create that which you believe in!!! And your ‘creation’ serves to strengthen your belief!

You are what you believe; you are what you think. What a powerful statement this is!! And how easy this can make life.

Do you believe that relationships fulfill? Or do you think they betray, sadden, leave you empty and spent?

Do you think humanity is capable of great good? Or do you believe that man is the perpetrator of heinous crimes and sin?

Do you think that abundance and self-esteem are what you make of it? Or do you believe that money buys you respect and pleasure?

When you read these questions, does it not seem as though you relate to all of them…. the positive ones and the not-so-positive ones? And there’s the clinch!

Which of these do you believe in intellectually? And which reach you at the gut level? That is the defining factor. Many, many, intellectually believe in goodness, and fulfillment, and joy….believing at a very deep and real level that evil abounds, that corruption is the order of the day, and that dishonesty pays at all levels; that, in fact, the world owes you one!

Well, if you do not believe that you are one of the many who hold this view, take a good, long look at your life. It reflects, in a manner that nothing else can, your beliefs. Often we do not wish to acknowledge that we hold negative beliefs about ourselves and others, but it is in this ‘burying your head in the sand’ that you lose out on the opportunities for growth.

What are you defeated by? Saddened about? What are you angry with? Do you accept any responsibility in it, or is it more comfortable to apportion blame? Are you paying lip-service to the Universal truths that you have learnt of? Are you using spirituality to play an all-new and different psychological game?

Isn’t it true that the only real perspective you can have of humanity, at large, is based and founded in the perspective you have of your self? Every newspaper article you read is judged by the filter of your beliefs and attitudes; every human interaction, however distant or close it might be, is experienced by you through your feelings that are moulded and shaped by your belief system.

Yes, it is disconcerting to read that everything you judge others capable of, is what you know you are capable of, in a very, very real sense. Of course, this knowing is not at the conscious level… and you will use every resistance technique there is in the book, to deny this statement. Remember, you create that which you believe in!!! And your ‘creation’ serves to strengthen your belief!

If it is growth that you desire for self and for all others in this world, you will allow the truth of this to penetrate you, to become part of your belief system. When this happens, the world around you will change, because all transformation starts at the level of one human heart. Make this heart your own!!
