We inherit beliefs. Stories become facts and we belive them . Something that has been said in folklore becomes a way of life , superstitions become a way of life .
Men are superior to women , man is in control of nature, science has to prove everything, if i cannot see it , it does not exist, we have to have a religion , to mention a few.
Religions doctrines which are often thrust upon us , we take on as our truth. We become brainwashed and find it difficult to see a new way or that there is even a possibility of a new way of thinking .
At some point will you ask yourself , what is my truth ? What do I really believe ? What has been handed down, been a belief of society, politics, fables and folklore and old wives tales ? That i can jettison as they no longer reasonate .
Why is this even important ? Perhaps it is because we are all growing in awareness, conciousness , exploring ourselves, becoming more mindful in ourselves and in society. It is a step in your personal and spiritual development to know what you believe and throw out what you do not .
Perhaps set an intention to look and move forward a tad or two !
