The other day I was reading about belief. The question was, what is belief. And you do not have to be a rocket scientist to know about what belief is.

According to Abraham Hicks, it is “a thought you keep thinking.”

Just think about that. “A belief is just a thought you keep thinking.”

I don’t know how many thoughts you have. And I don’t know how many beliefs you keep thinking. But they must be many.

You can’t count them. They keep coming. You even call them natural. As if they are. They are your convictions. Some people may look at the same thought differently. And nothing happens to them.

While we cling to belief for dear life, as if, when we let go, something terrible will happen to us. I’ve been around. I should know better. But its not always like that. It is difficult to understand.

Why do we think differently. That’s the subject of this discussion.

Why do we think differently. Some of you may ask me to give an example. I will try. I hope you won’t say I am prejudiced.

One thing for sure you will have to bear in mind is that my outlook is determined by my experiences in life. How did I get there. The foolish things I have done. And the regrets that followed thereafter.

Like, “I wish I hadn’t done that thing.” But I did. And the consequences weren’t that wonderful. They were ghastly, to say the least. Either you get my drift or you don''t.

I hope it will become clearer as we go along. You just don’t condemn because you want to. You wonder about the consequences of one’s action. We don’t see them while we do them.

They happen afterwards. When we have long forgotten. They manifest.

While action is taking place, they are nice. Let’s look at a young woman drinking beer. It is nice while she is doing it.

She is like; she is cool. There is no one like her. But we don’t know what is eating her up.

We don’t know what is at the seat of her troubles.

Only she knows. Maybe it is troubles she is running away from.

Or, she sees someone doing it and says it is cool. Mind you, do people like her go far. I don’t think so.

Some end up being tramps. And what happens to a dream deferred. It does not explode. It wallows in sorrow.

I thought I was going to be great. But now I’m not. What makes one great. Good thoughts. And what are good thoughts. Good behaviour. Can we get there. Of course we can. We just have to try. Stay positive.
