Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is. – Bhagavad Gita
I probably don’t spend enough time thinking about what I believe. When confronted with the question — What do you believe about ___________? – I usually stumble with an inadequate answer. Later on, I find myself wishing I’d given my answer more thought or been more articulate.
Belief, to me, means a whole lot more than thinking. I may think something, but believing raises it to a new level. So when I read the above quote it gave me pause. What do I believe? Amazingly, when I asked myself that question I felt my heart stimulated, not my head. Maybe that’s as good as a distinction as I can come up with – you think with your head, you believe with your heart. You have a greater investment in your beliefs than in your thoughts.
So my friends, I find myself this morning meditating on the question “what do I believe.” Hoping it will tell me who I am. I hope you find time to do the same, and I bet if you do your answer will come from your heart.
