My Journal 17. – Belief System

sky space dark galaxy

We all have a belief system based on culture, religion , values, priorities, path to spirituality . Some believe in the existence of supreme power so do I , some believe in the control of their life and power of their action, some believe the power is around us and everywhere . There are innumerable variations and theories and system. Every family has common belief system which may change or adapt individually with time and experience.

I developed a belief system over the years as I read through various scriptures , books from various sources and about different systems of spirituality .In addition to I believe in the existence of Supreme Being, I also believe there is power in one form or the other around us in the form of energies and we all also carry a part of this power in form of our actions and responsibilities . We all have our roles , responsibility , rules within a society to follow. We have an affect on everything around us and are effected by everything around us both directly and indirectly, there is sense of connection .This universe acts as one , a change in one part directly reflects changes in other realms of universe. There is interconnection between every individual entity. This makes us responsible for our actions and footprints.

We are mere instruments so there can be no ego in achievements. With all that has made achievements possible from being in the right place at the right time to having access to right resources , having the right guidance and support . But to reach a point , to endure and to have learnt is truly ones own. Its through our achievements we get to serve and help others to rise to a level they can meet their goals and passion.

Everybody learns what they can do best for others where their interests and strength coincides to achieve their true calling. It is through realizing our true potential , interests , capacities we move towards self realization. We learn to have better control over reactions and emotions , identifying your true worth and potential and accepting the true self , following your heart and passion to keep you focused and gives strength to life, accepting about self and others and building better and healthier relations.

What we make and what life makes of you is sure in your own hands but does not reach the destination without proper support and guidance. We take part of knowledge and experience from others and share a part of us. This is achieved by being of service to greater cause for others and be able to look beyond ourselves. Our actions create reactions or are reactions to others, there is a ripple effect of every action .Hence we all hold a part of the change and contribute our part for developments to take place.

We are not the only source or origin of any knowledge , it has been discovered and put to use much before we knew of its existence and every knowledge we access is still incomplete as its tiny part of the entire universe. We tap into this knowledge in the universe to find our answers and to achieve our goals. We put in our efforts through our own unique and creative ways to life and bring in our newness to solve or outlook of the world.

Balance is the key , evil is actually the absence of balance and existence of extreme. Anything in extremes is itself evil or leads to being evil. Anything used in right balance is very much needed for survival but in extremes it leads to destruction for self and others.

More than the results of action the intentions matter. The reason behind the action performed defines what we will get back from our lives , our thoughts and Karma. Finally we are collection of memories but every moment is a chance to learn something new and let go , to be new me. Its not necessary to follow another, but one can respect another’s perspective , skill , work or approach and learn best from everybody, because after all humans are not perfect and everybody has their drawbacks to work on and failures to cherish.

Our belief systems change , evolve and adapt with time and experiences. So its still a journey to be discovered on our own living , experiencing , searching , learning and sharing . As far as a persons belief system respects self and others, values freedom and nurtures a responsible behavior its always right in their own place.

  1. GOD SAYS NOT TO JUDGE….YOUR IDEAS ON BELIEFS AND TEACHING THEM HAVE MERIT. YET…ISN’T THERE A CONTRADICTION BETWEEN A SOVEREIGN GOD UP THERE AND A GENERALIZED VISIOIN OF SAD GOD DOWN HERE? JUST A THOUGHT, RESPECTFULLY.

    1. Oh this one topic I would never debate on these are my personal beliefs and its totally a result of many factors including religion , culture , my journey , my ethics. its just an example how people and families share common beliefs but yet in the journey with experience every body makes changes to their belief system. The idea here is belief system too forms an important part in the development .
