What Is Belief And How Does It Shape Reality? Ask Deepak

You are currently viewing What Is Belief And How Does It Shape Reality? Ask Deepak

A belief is an idea that you hold to be true. They shape our perceptions, attitudes, moods, and how we perceive our reality.* Reality is filtered to our consciousness through these beliefs. Beliefs in most cases are limiting, but have the opportunity to be empowering. Beliefs limit you by defining you. True empowerment comes from pushing beyond belief. Belief is a cover-up for insecurity and you can only find your true self if you push past it.

    I got a funny belief for you. The church of Adelaide has been proclaiming that the fires in Australia are the wrath of God! For not believing in a blood sacrifice for our sins. And that our prime minister is called by God, even though he has just been busted out doing corrupt deal’s! In my opinion the church is drowning in false beliefs! And is very destructive!

    Belief has nothing to do with Truth. In fact it is quite the opposite. If you believe something it is because you don’t know the truth. Belief and Truth are mutually exclusive.

    Thank you Deepak.
    Question: How can we access creativity during meditation if we are putting away our thoughts?

    1. gamma burst

      When you are meditating, what are you doing? Do you put away your thoughts? Or do you find that when you tell your thoughts to go away, nothing happens?

      When meditating, do you attempt to stop your kidney, or heart? No? Then why stop the brain?

      It’s okay for thoughts to be there ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Thanks Deepak. Love you. You explain this well. Beliefs absolutely shape perceptions. We can change our thoughts, emotional response, shift our consciousness through meditation. Namaste ๐Ÿ•‰๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒป
