“A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.” — Byron Katie
Belief: “Life is difficult and you don’t get anywhere in life without a lot of hard work.”
Thought: “It is going to take me forever to establish myself in a new field/career.”
Can you see how this thought is only true if you believe it? Meaning, we create “our truth” or “our reality” every day by what we choose to believe. If we believe there is no gain without pain, then life we always be painful and when we acquire or achieve something that wasn’t painful, we often are unable to hold on it because of our prevailing belief.
Are you ready to let go of certain beliefs that hold you back or create challenge and difficulty? Are you ready to believe that our minds are that powerful and we have the ability to choose which thoughts to focus on? Choosing our thoughts, and releasing our attachment to beliefs that do not serve us, is mindful transformation.
