Your beliefs become your thoughts
Your thoughts become your words
Your words become your actions
Your actions become your habits
Your habits become your character
Your character becomes your destiny.
it goes against our most traditional wisdom- but releasing beliefs and instead, listening again allows for a more just and whole continuum…..
inquiry for today~ when a strong belief comes up, can you ask if it’s really true?
what do you believe?
Fear-based beliefs are creatures of the dark. They are sustained outside the light of awareness and they dissipate upon mindful inspection. As author Byron Katie teaches in her groundbreaking work, “You’re either attaching to your thoughts or inquiring. There’s no other choice.” Inquiry into what is true is central to Katie’s work, and to meditative practices. By inquiry, I mean asking questions that invite a deepening of attention. The ultimate purpose of inquiry is that it allows us to pause, rather than ride along on the habitual track of our assumptions about reality. In the space of a pause, truth can shine through. ~Tara Brach
