Why do humans lay such store by what they believe? ‘Belief’ seems to be the ‘real thing:’ it has the weight that makes ‘opinion’ flippant.

It asserts that something is true or exists, even in the invisible or unknown, which is converted into ‘faith.’ Then, you are forced to choose between faith and no faith, and each has its social consequences. This is the paraphernalia of belief.

But what you believe is of the Mind, born from thoughts which die the moment they are thought. It is a complex delusion because there is no ‘I’ to believe, and no other ‘I’ to believe in.



Belief is fretted with arguments and comes from ignorance: it is actually hiding what you do not know.

When you know something, you just-know.



The moment ‘you,’ the ‘believer,’ disappear, the divine enters because reality is One, not two.

Belief separates us from the divine, from our True Nature.
