Many of us grew up with the belief that faith means believing without question in what you are told is truth.
Many have reacted to this by shutting out any talk of Spirituality, any mention of anything that hints of religion.
The step for us, now, is to begin to get a sense of our own inner truth, to make space to listen to our inner guidance and wisdom, to begin to recognise it and honour it.
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumoured by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it!” Buddha
The call now is to open to new ideas but to always practise discernment – to always think about what we hear and read and see how it fits with our own true Self.
