Beliefs and other Burdens
Dropping the Ball...

It seems to me that since I've been forced to deal with my health issue that my perception of spirituality has changed enormously.
What was common sense to me, before, is now redundant and for the most part, obsolete.
I did not choose to be given hep C at the age of two so that my kidneys could crash at age 57. I would agree that 'what the mind perceives the body can achieve' but, there are many limitations to that philosophy and proof of that can be seen everywhere, whereas proof of the existence of 'destiny', the 'soul' and 'life after death' are simply matters of belief, which is, for the most part, grasping at straws and whistling in the graveyard. They are nowhere to be seen except in the imagination.
The great question people ask is 'who am I?'
We know we are not these bodies, we are not our possessions, our job, our race or religion.
You could say, generally speaking, that we are our beliefs. This is what I feel, anyway, that if we can drop, abandon, let go and be free of our beliefs, we are awake, finally, to our highest reality and purpose. We are free of the cycle of birth and death, fear and love, 'us and them'.
We sleep so we can awaken free of dreams....
