Beliefs & Objects


‘You talk about beliefs as if they are objects!’ I said to the spirit after his students had all gone. I had been listening to the spirit of wisdom; posing as a psychologist lecturer, teach a class of university students. We ‘have’ believes, and we ‘own’ beliefs. We ‘get’ them, ‘pick’ them up, ‘gain’ them, and even ‘inherit’ a few.
The spirit spoke as if beliefs were pieces of furniture with which we would decorate our home. We choose beliefs that do not ‘clash’. Sometimes we ‘find’ a belief that we like, but it does not suit our lifestyle. The spirit of wisdom just smiled as I spoke, ‘You have learned well!’
