Why is it?

Why is it that we discount the beliefs of others,
Regarding as alien anything we do not agree with
“No, no that’s not right at all!”
“This is the truth, I’m absolutely sure!”
Despotic dictator, ego and the self

But if it were not possible it would not
have intruded into the domain of mind
It would have remained forever obscured,
unconscious of itself
For thoughts and ideas are dragged along in a
stream of universal consciousness
Seeking rest and refuge in the hearts and minds
of men

“As a man thinks in his heart so is he”
So the heart brings birth to all that we have been
and all that is to become us
Belief tugs our leash, dispatching us onwards to
robust dreams and aspirations
What we believe, we can one day become
Positive or negative, the Will shall overcome
Reality conceived by the mind, or the mind
brought into being by this world?
Both argue their case, but who is able to
decipher their hieroglyphic ranting?

Why is it?

Artist's Description

Life involves knowing not just what you believe, but also examining carefully why and how you came to believe it. De-constructing and then re-assembling the beliefs in the attic of your consciousness is something we all need to do from time to time.

Comments are very welcome ! Feedback is a great teacher for all of us.
