We create our reality based on our long held beliefs until one day we realize that what we have believed in was not true, and due to our misguided beliefs we may have created agony and tension in our life (and others).
How many people do you know who have tried to fit the world into the prism of their beliefs? How many people do you know, who after a life time, if fortunate, admit their beliefs did not serve them or their family? This admittance should not be taken lightly. For some, this maybe their life lesson.
Educated people are superior…
Education brings security and love…
Animals are inferior due to brain size…
These beliefs lasted for many decades
impacting her life view and interaction with others.
At an old age, sitting alone in the dark with two cats
feeling lonely and abandoned by educated people.
One cat purred and licked her face, shattering all her old beliefs!
She came to a sudden realization that brain size or education
does not make one more lovable or superior!
Feeling that unconditional love
in her desperate moment of her life
tears came down her wrinkled face.
She wondered how these animals could be kinder than many educated humans.
Why did I cling to my old beliefs for so long?
