Discipline #9

B.E.L.I.E.F: Blind Evidence Lives In Every Faith

~ “Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”~
— Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha)

We each live according to our beliefs and those beliefs determine how we conduct our lives. Our beliefs are ingrained in our standards, moral values, ethics, codes and disciplines. Therefore, it is vital to understand what you believe in order to gauge the nature of your behavior. Absolutely every act carried out on the physical plane is a direct result of ones inner beliefs. Your beliefs necessitate your entire way of being so it is crucial then to understand the nature of your beliefs.
On a very subtle and scientific level, beliefs are the seeds that germinate your existence. You believe something to be so and thus it is. This is a very rudimentary understanding of how you create your life as you go. The mind, which is where all ideas are formulated, is the fertile ground for materialization. You start by having an idea which is then supported by your beliefs. This idea culminates into a growing concept through your continued belief in it. The stronger your belief, the faster the culmination will be. This has been the premise of all creation since the inception of man. You think, therefore you are.
The greatest deception ever carried out against man was to convince him that he has no control over external phenomena. The belief in a separate and random existence has long since been one of the greatest deceptions to be foisted upon the intelligent thinking man. The idea of there being no rhyme or reason to events and the concept of a chaotic universe is by far the most ludicrous belief you could ever foster. To believe in a random universe would mean that everything throughout the course of your existence is based entirely upon coincidence and disorder. In truth, everything in the universe happens according to an intricate, all-encompassing design being carried out by Divine intelligence. This intelligence is orchestrated by a unique yet ever-present consciousness which permeates all awareness. It is you and you are it, hence your ability to create through it and from it. You are created in the image and likeness of this creative intelligence. As above, so below. You are a microcosm of the macrocosm. You are a holographic expression of the cosmos compressed into physical form. Every cell, every organism and every component of your physical reality is geometrically proportionate to the entire universe. All physical objects are comprised of base elements determined by geometric shapes and formulas which make up the tangible world you experience in your day-to-day life. But nothing could exist on the physical landscape without it first existing on the inner plane.
