Our belief system

I believe we all have a belief system that affects how we live day to day. Our belief system over time will begin to affect how we perceive and interpret what we see, feel and hear.

If we continually live with negativity, our belief system will see all our present and future situations in negative ways. It takes a lot of work to be able to look and identify the beliefs that begin to affect our lives negatively. I believe that we need to deal with our belief system first, before we identify and release ourselves from any negative thoughts.

Once we work on our feelings and beliefs, the more peace we’ll have in the longer term. We are the masters of our own destiny, literally. Our feelings remain inside of us until we learn how to change them. The only one who can change what we feel is us. How many of us think that if our circumstances change, us finding someone to go out with, then we’ll be happier, we’ll stop being lonely, only to find that we’re still feeling lonely.

We are the only ones that can do that. I also believe that we take our feelings with us wherever we go. If we move house we take our feelings with us. If we move countries our feelings go with us, if we buy a new car and the euphoria wears off, we’ll still be left with the same feelings but a new car.

We tend to replicate the same feelings and emotions we have in our childhood in our adult life through our beliefs. We cannot change other people’s beliefs, that much is true, but we can change how we perceive our beliefs and behaviour so that we see only the positive and act on that.

  1. Yes, it does come down to the fact that we’re the only ones who can change our belief system!

    It’s pretty much a waste of time trying to change what other people believe in. It has taken me a long time to figure that out.

    1. I’m pleased you’ve worked it out Randy. It really doesn’t matter how long it takes us to figure things out, as long as we do.
