    The biology of belief

    Good book. The jist of it is that we create our reailty based on our beliefs.


    Reality is whatever we make it, so 'truth' will always be what we have already chosen to believe.


    You are living truth now. The quest for answers causes the future to unfold, so keep searching!

    Have you studied Blavatsky or the Law of One material?

    What's important are the scientific principles and methods that materialistic science offers, and not so much the scientific theories. Each author will obviously reflect his or her own personal beliefs, so by just being aware of that you can still gain a lot from reading as many different books as possible and not get caught up thinking that any one person is going to e right about everything.

    It's difficult, for me, to say if it's better to read to get guidance, or it's better to read to validate your experiences. It depends ...

    Guidance seeds beliefs. Beliefs create reality.

    On the other hand, you might have no experience to validate if you don't firstly get some ideas.

    In my case, I started by asking myself some important questions. To find answers, I looked for books that might provide them. So, I got exposed to ideas I've never heard of before. My new interests and knowledge began to yield experiences that widened my quest for knowledge. In time, I started to feel that new sources of information began to pop up at the right moment when I needed them.

    Then there came a moment when I realized that beliefs can not only limit development, but actually stimulate subjective confirmation of themselves, masking reality, so I had to make the effort to have experiences while putting aside all expectations, and minimize interpretations.
