How do you know you are attached to a belief?

We humans, have lots of beliefs. They are all in our mind, right? Now, how do beliefs cause trouble?  We pose that the worst and most destructive behaviour of human beings, is often related to beliefs.

The fact that we believe something by the way (or in other words the content of a belief) does not always matter, but our behaviour certainly does. Let’s assume for now, that the worst behaviour is to psychologically or physically attack people.  Let’s look at some examples of identification with beliefs.

Q: When someone has a significantly different opinion about something, why would that upset you? 

A: it upsets you, because you are so indentified with your opinion (belief), that you feel that you are right and the other is wrong. The person other therefore must be convinced, rejected, or ignored.

Q: When you meet a person from another nation, one which perhaps 100 years ago fought a war against your country, why would that bother you?

A: it bothers you, because you are so indentified with your country that you think your country is superior, or “right” about certain things, and the other country (or other countries) are or were wrong.

Q: When a person gives you the feedback that you are doing things wrong, why would that upset you?

A: Because you are so identified with the idea of yourself as a separate entity which needs to be defended and protected, that you become reactive and angry. You are not able to just perceive what is being said, independent of it being accurate or not. It throws you out of balance.

And so on. The list of possible situations and reactions is infinitely long. In many cases when conflict arises, it is based on the identification or attachment to a belief. Whether it is a belief about yourself, your country, your politics or your religion, does not matter. We pose, that having beliefs is not the problem, but being identified with them is!

@YOU: our question: WHAT can we do to change this mechanism? Or should we simply accept that this is a fact of human psychology and it will never change?

  1. We have to accept that people can only change if they want to and if they are aware of their beliefs that are affecting them negatively. I think the our strongest beliefs exist in our subconscious. These beliefs can be hard to change and even harder to become aware of.

  2. The beliefs in our sub-consciousness are probably less rational, and more emotional. I do think though that we can become aware of our behaviour, even if it comes from deeper hidden beliefs, and then choose to act differently, or not to act or react.

  16. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  17. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back

  23. wonderful publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this
    sector do not understand this. You musst continue your writing.
    I am sure, you have a great readers’ base
    already!

  24. It’s actually a nice and useful piece off info.
    I’m satisfied that yyou simply shared this useful information with us.
    Pleae stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing.

  25. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenginmg on blogs I stumbleupon every day.

    It will always be usefuul to read through articles from other authors and use a little something
    from their sites.

  26. Hey There. I discovered your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article.

    I’ll be sure to bookmark it and return to read
    extra of your useful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely return.

  27. Great goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too great.
    I really like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you’re stating
    and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable
    and you still care for to keep it wise. I cant wait to read far more from
    you. This is really a tremendous website.

  28. All businesses really should have a message page.
    Websites ranging bigger and class originating from
    a local restaurant with a Fortune 500 company, have contact pages.
    At my current startup I have seen many requests… with the pizza delivery guy letting us know he was in front door to potential investors looking
    to dicuss with his management team.

    If you find yourself setting increase contact page
    (and finding the traffic volume of an local restaurant) would likely not
    be thinking about how to take care of your contact requests
    when site traffic increases. However, you should.

    Take into consideration establishing automation that alerts support,
    sales and other stakeholders with your company when a communication request comes through.

    You can create a dropdown field in an application form for kinds of contact
    requests. It is possible to arrange logic in many
    marketing automation platforms that sends
    email alerts to the correct resource within your startup dependant on the type of request the viewer
    selects.

    I was buried with contact requests once we launched beta.

    To be a cloud-based product I saw many product support
    requests. So we mapped form submissions on our contact
    page to produce support tickets in Zendesk.

    You should also create redundancies so contact requests (important ones!) don’t explore an individual recipient’s inbox.
    You may alert multiple recipients, create reminder emails,
    or trigger automatic replies to make contact with requests with information that could solve their problem.

    This is all super easy to create with all-in-one
    marketing platforms like HubSpot.

  29. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a
    blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. The problem is something that
    too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I found this during my search for something relating
    to this.

  30. Thank you, I’ve just been looking for informatoon approximately this subject for
    a long time and yours is the greatest I’ve discovered soo far.

    this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I believe that you just could do with some % to force the
    message house a little bit, but other than that, that is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I will certainly be back.

  34. “We need to build to a different crescendo, cheri,” he said.
    “And we all may have an ending that’ll be as none before.”

    His smile was decadent, his eyes were filled up with lust, and also the soft skin of
    his hard cock against my sex was having its intended effect.
    I’m feeling a stronger arousal now as I felt his cock slide between my sensitive lips.
    I felt the pinnacle of his cock push agonizingly at the doorway of my pussy, and I need
    to him to thrust into me hard. Instead he pulled back and slid his hardness back
    up to my clit.

    I’m aching to get him inside, and I could tell that his ought
    to push that wonderful hard cock inside me was growing. His
    moans grew to match mine, and I knew the opinion of my wet pussy lips around the head of
    his cock was getting an excessive amount for of us.

    “Allow finale begin,” he stated, anf the husband slid the tip of his cock inside me.

    The two of us gasped while he held his cock there to get a moment.
    I contracted my pussy to tug him further inside, and hubby threw his head back on the sensation. Inch by excruciating
    inch he pushed his cock inside me, each time I squeezed my pussy around him.
    His cock felt wonderful because it filled me, but I needed all this inside me.
    I rolled to the side and rested my leg against his shoulder, and that he plunged his
    cock right in.
