Believing, Vulnerability and Bravery – and the power that these bring us

Believing, although ‘risky’ brings such rewards that it is worth it – There are repercussions to believing, true – We find we have placed our faith into something that turns out to be ‘un-true’ – we follow, only to find we are lied to – we open up only to find we get shot down – So it is very easy to interpret belief as foolishness

I believe in almost everything I see and hear – A friend once pointed out this trait in me as if it were a weakness, that it made me vulnerable – Which is true, believing does make us vulnerable, but this is not a weakness – vulnerability and bravery go hand in hand – Believing may well take us into ‘nothingness’, up the garden path, have us look like fools – But this is small fry when compared to what it also brings – Believing allows us to explore, to go with, un-questioningly, to the very ends – It allows us to evolve, big time – The difficulties arising allowing for tremendous learning to take place – It allows experience, to try it all out first hand, as recommended by whomever we allow to influence us
