Captive to Your Belief:

"People who believe they have the power to exercise some measure of control over their lives are healthier, more effective, and more successful than those who lack faith in their lives." ― Albert Bandura.

Blood is the human physical body's life, its connection to life here on this side of eternity. The blood, however, is not animate. It is controlled by that which directs every other function of the human organism. This we call the brain, in physical terms, but more accurately, the mind, in metaphysical terms.

What controls the mind? What fuels the mind? What gives the mind its daily to-do list? You want to take a guess? Awesome. Wow! You are so right. Yes, it is known and called "belief." The mind runs on what we believe or not believe, and mercilessly so. Ours is to admit it as a belief. Everything else is on autopilot.

Again, I repeat, "mercilessly so." Carl Gustav Jung describes this so very well in saying, “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life, and you will call it fate.” That has hit people in every generation since our first parents, Adam and Eve.

It is the very source of superstitions and myths, which is the very source causal effectual of all cults and cultures. We condemn and or are liberated by our beliefs, irrespective of what they are. Even what we call the voice of God, in conscience, is truly not the voice of God in reality, but rather the voice of our belief.

Our belief is the unconscious that directs the trajectory of our life. It determines our fate, destiny, health, success, failure, all the like, and in-betweens. Do you know your beliefs? Are you conscious of them and how they are leading and directing your life?

You cannot grow past your beliefs. However, the good thing is that you can change and direct them once you know them. Do you know your beliefs? Are they working for you? Are you directing your beliefs, or do they have you captive?

The ball is in your court. Never forget you are the master of your fate and captain of your soul, either consciously or unconsciously. You are always responsible. No excuse holds, nor will ever hold water.

It's Your Neighbor.
