Chapter 5: Believe with traps and possibilities
“Light yourself up.
Find refuge within yourself.
Take away all your outer hiding places.
Hold on to the truth like a lamp illuminating the way.
Hold the truth as a refuge.
Don’t rely on anyone but yourself. -Buddha
The Buddha taught us not to believe anything
until we can verify its validity by our own experience.
In this way,
we will not easily believe,
but will gain access to the causal relationship hidden
in all things and phenomena,
and also learn what is really right
or wrong rather than holding on to it,
take one’s opinion or opinion blindly,
which is greatly influenced by the level of education,
or the socio economic
or the country we live in,
the media as well as a lot of external factors in other scene.
There is a faith that we do not need
to verify its authenticity that is faith in ourselves.
As we discussed in chapter 1,
this belief is the key to inspiration;
It is the motivation for you to think,
speak and act most effectively to bring success
to both your inner world as well as your outer world.
Our lives are full of surprises.
for better or for worse,
occur at regular intervals
and evoke feelings of discomfort
and fear within people.
With so much uncertainty,
it’s only natural
that we cling to beliefs that give us a sense
of security and stability in our lives.
God, Allah, Jesus,
Mohammad and Buddha are all subjects of world religious beliefs.
Belief in their commandments can be helpful
because we find in them wisdom and reason.
There are also religions that stray from the path of true insight,
such as astrology,
or religious rituals.
It doesn’t matter if there’s any truth behind these things,
but it’s an exercise in feeding people’s fears and ambitions.
Therefore, it cannot be the true path to success
and certainly not the path to liberation to enlightenment.
“I have only one simple religion.
No need for temples, no complicated philosophies.
Our brains and hearts are temples;
philosophy is kindness.”-14th Da Lama
Despite the insights found in many religious traditions,
war and hatred based on faith are still ongoing.
When wisdom goes astray
and indulges in superstitions and human desires,
the consequences are incalculable.
Wise people never believe that the things that come
from their desires can be right
and beneficial in the long run.
We act ignorant
and create a lot of trouble for ourselves
and for the world while seeking salvation
from outside forces
instead of seeing through our own minds.
it is our minds that create the problems
and actually create our own world.
Life will break you.
Nobody can protect you from that,
and living alone won’t either,
for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
You have to love.
You have to feel it.
It is the reason you are here on earth.
You are here to risk your heart.
You are here to be swallowed up.
And when it happens that you are broken,
or death brushes near,
let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen
to the apples falling all around you in heaps,
wasting their sweetness.
Tell yourself you tasted as many
as you could. — Louise Erdrich
THE FAITH OF BUDDHA FOUNDATION FROM KNOWLEDGE
Buddhism doesn’t teach us
to believe that each person has a pre-destined
or predestined fate
(although a lot of religious people still believe that),
but Buddhism does teach us
that everything happens in our lives.
It’s all the result of what we do.
That is the law of nature:
cause creates effect.
The exercise of awareness of each person is also in the nature of nature.
People look deep inside,
make themselves subject to study,
and the data collected arises from often hard
to observe internal phenomena
such as thoughts and emotions.
Only by careful analysis
of these phenomena can we distinguish right from wrong.
If we don’t see cause
and effect clearly
by analyzing what’s going on inside of us,
we will cling to foolish beliefs.
The Buddha taught us not to put our faith in what we hear,
what others believe,
words in books,
relation to a reason,
theory, the reputation of the person
who made this opinion,
or even what your teachers taught you.
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FEAR AND FAITH
“If you have faith even as small as a mustard seed,
you can move mountains.”-“God”
You fear failure because you believe you will fail.
When you get rid of this belief,
most of your fear will be destroyed immediately.
If you believe that your spouse is never the one to betray,
then you have nothing to fear.
In this situation,
fear doesn’t bring any benefit
but only makes the situation worse
even if they really cheated on you.
Think positive and turn your negative emotions into positive
as much as possible.
If you believe you can fail,
stop yourself from that feeling,
trust completely in your sure success,
and then it will come to you.
Just think positive thinking alone does not create that much power.
But if you sincerely believe that you think right,
while your thinking is reinforced
by what you believe,
then the creative power of the universe will be at work.
Some people think they will be rich
but they don’t really believe it.
and persistence are the keys in life.
So never give up on yourself.”- Khalid
Take a look at your own life to see
if you are like them.
All athletes think about winning,
but this mindset must be reinforced
by the unshakable belief that they will win.
Without this belief,
their thoughts will become useless,
they turn into bubbles that float on the water
and then dissolve on their own
as if they never existed.
If they have the power of faith with them,
they will surely focus their strength
and prepare well for the competition.
Trust can easily spread from person to person.
For example, you are working in an office environment
and you believe that one of your colleagues
is not fulfilling his responsibilities.
Then you let other co-workers know how you feel
and suggest that perhaps this person should be fired.
Once you’ve planted this seed in your colleague’s mind,
it’s obvious that they’ll begin
to see the other person’s faults more deeply.
Before long, they might think he’s unfit for the job.
However, this phenomenon can also be applied in a positive way.
If you believe your name will be
at the top of the list of upcoming promotions,
people will believe it too.
And in an office environment,
chances are your boss will believe the same.
If we revisit the example given in Chapter 1 of Henry Ford
and his wife’s encouragement,
we will see that if the spouse believes in you and says so,
your chances of success automatically increase will be doubled.
Successful affirmative leaders understand this Secret well,
and they spread their beliefs far and wide
until their advocacy becomes widespread
to achieve their goals.
Jimmy Hoffa is a genius in this field.
He brought together hundreds of thousands of low income
and overworked workers to form a union that laid the foundation
for America’s middle class.
He did this because he truly believed in what he was doing.
Unfortunately, almost all of the world’s most terrible tyrants
know this power of faith.
Such people link their thoughts to a very strong belief
that attracts them
and the minds of their followers,
from which they gather great encouragement
and spread their terrors all over the world.
Beliefs are extremely powerful
and can have beneficial
or harmful results.
It is a sad fact that beliefs are often drawn in harmful directions
and that is why we have so many famines,
violence and wars.
If we hold foolish beliefs from the beginning,
they will be like a fertile ground for racism,
sexism or any other thought that can cause suffering.
Don’t be too gullible;
Use the power of faith effectively and properly.
“Be careful when doing the quest to ‘destroy evil’,
as it may turn you into exactly
what you are up against.”-Eckhart Tolle
Just like thinking,
beliefs have both good and bad extremes
but are much stronger than thinking.
Use your beliefs positively
and you will be able to control your destiny.
Perhaps no more convincing proof of the power
of faith is the story of Morris Goodman,
told in The Secret.
A plane crash left him paralyzed
and doctors told him
that the only motor skill left in him was the ability to blink.
But he believes he will be able to go back;
he saw this image in his head
and what remained became history.
Today, Morris is known as the Miracle Man.
He understands how to use the Creative Process,
is a master of his ability to channel the iron power
of belief and emotional imagery into his desires.
Laugh, even when you feel too sick
or too worn out or tired.
Smile, even when you’re trying not to cry
and the tears are blurring your vision.
Sing, even when people stare at you
and tell you your voice is crappy.
Trust, even when your heart begs you not to.
Twirl, even when your mind makes no sense of what you see.
hey, even when you are made fun of.
Kiss, even when others are watching.
Sleep, even when you’re afraid
of what the dreams might bring.
Run, even when it feels like you can’t run any more.
And, always, remember,
even when the memories pinch your heart.
Because the pain of all your experience is
what makes you the person you are now.
And without your experience,
you are an empty page,
a blank notebook,
a missing lyric.
What makes you brave is your willingness
to live through your terrible life
and hold your head up high the next day.
So don’t live life in fear.
Because you are stronger now,
after all the crap has happened,
than you ever were back before it started. ― Alysha Speer
Chapter 5: Top Secrets
BELIEVE WITH TRAPS AND POSSIBILITIES
Beliefs can provide the important inspiration
and motivation needed to achieve success.
Beliefs can be contagious to others.
Children will believe in themselves
if their parents believe it too.
Beliefs are stronger than thoughts.
Just thinking positively,
you won’t get much if you don’t really believe in your thinking.
If you can do this,
success will come very quickly.
To do good,
we must believe in ourselves,
believe in what we say and do,
believe in what is right and wise.
Don’t make yourself the repository of every opinion we receive.
Don’t trust blindly easily.
Instead, take note of what the Buddha taught
and prove the truth to yourself
without relying on the teachings of others.
Even this advice!
The power of faith is increased
by proper preparation.
If something important is about
to happen to our loved ones,
our faith in them helps.
So honestly believe in them.
First, you have to believe in yourself.
This will make people trust you.
True faith comes from the depths of each person.
This belief will put your unconscious in touch
with the powers in the universe and create your reality.
If you want to be happy for 1 hour, take a short nap;
If you want to be happy for a day, go fishing;
If you want to be happy for 1 month, get married
If you want to be happy for 1 year, inherit property
If you want to be happy for a lifetime, help people. ― Chinese proverbs
