“The belief in a thing makes it happen.” ~Frank Lloyd Wright
Belief is a powerful guiding force in our lives. We can accomplish very little if we do not believe in what we are doing. Our work, our relationships it all seems hollow, void of purpose, when we don’t believe in it.
When we believe in something we accept its premise and possibility. We choose to acknowledge and accept it as truth, regardless of proof. Belief is the simplest element of conscious thought; a mental manifestation or representation of what we hold in our mind as truth.
Belief transcends our own understanding. It is present throughout our ever changing knowledge and opinion as a thread connecting all our observations, inferences and experiences, defining our truest nature. The depth of our belief may change during the course of our lives as our understanding expands, but the core of our belief can never be worn.
In a way our belief is a reflection of our soul. A force of great mystery, exerting influence over our conscious selves, sometimes defying logic or reason.
“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” ~Muhammad Ali
Our belief is the motivating force, driving us to accomplish many things. When we choose to truly believe that love, not hate; creation, not destruction; balance and order, not chaos are the prevailing forces in the universe, humanity can achieve greatness in our world.
