Belief can be your reality

Belief is a very powerful thing... it affects and shapes your reality as you live it...

IF one believes in horrible places in the afterlife, that belief combined with the guilt of your actions or lack of action in this life. Said person might land themselves in that horrible place after they pass.

IF one believes in demons, or devils... said person gives those dark entities that power over them... You believe they exist which renders you powerless against them.

Dark entities have no power over you unless you give them that power...

I work in health care, and I've tested the power of belief many times by use of placebo... The belief in said fake medication affects that persons reality.... this works with sedative and painkillers.

A person can be in extreme pain, and if told by someone who is trusted that the medication will relieve their pain, it will work almost every single time... and in reality the only thing this person was given was a positive thought and some sugar.

Believe in the positive... and do not dabble in the negative

And your reality will be positive, and your positive realty will affect those around you...

A wise man once said...

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Be that light...

Be love

yes? of course the placebo effect is real? you're just shrouding it in an uninteresting story and prose.

I love the way you put that! Almost like karma you do good you get good back you do bad you get bad back.

Beliefs only change how one perceives reality, not reality itself. Reality is pure and unburdened by the beliefs one has of it.

Edit: Here is one interpretation of belief influenced by my readings in philosophy "We come from wholeness. Consciousness spawns from complete knowledge. Put into a body to experience what is already known. There is no learning, only remembering. Shifting our way through the objective in search of the pure. The point of knowledge was to put the pieces back together in search of the source. The place in which we all come from and go back to. Somewhere along the way instead of sharing and spreading it we started to withhold and manipulate it. Obsessed with the answer, confusing its meaning and mistaking knowledge with power. In the process we separate from each-other. The more we move apart from one another the more we move apart from the knowledge that wants to find us. The more we move apart from pure and the more at odds with everything we will be. The answer is simple, the point of knowledge is to come together, pieces of a whole. Unity is the only way to achieve a successful picture."

Keep that in mind when the flesh falls away, and reality is presented to you in all its glory

You believe they exist which renders you powerless against them.

Can you explain that?

You're only powerless against something you don't believe or understand.

You're powerless when you believe in something that is "evil" so to speak... for example...

IF you believe in "the devil" you give said entity the power of belief over you...

Do you know the parable of the mustard seed?

The smallest belief can turn into something great...

I totally disagree.

Believing in something doesn't give it "power over you".

An evil person may not believe they're evil, but that doesn't make them any less evil.

Only when you understand something can you ward yourself against it.
