“True knowing does not come from any book, but from the heart. If a belief is the tool you use to draw lines in the sand in order to set yourself apart from the rest of God’s creation, you might want to consider why you would want to do such a thing. And, you might also want to reflect and seriously evaluate what you believe, where you learned it, who told you to believe this way, why someone might want you to think like this, and how this belief is actually working in your life.
Believe me when I say that this belief is definitely working in your life – all beliefs do. If, however, a belief causes separation, in any way, it is probably not working the way you expect it to. If you believe, for instance, that “in God, all things are possible,” then you will need a pretty small definition of ALL if you wish to exclude certain possibilities – like the possibility that you may be wrong about the whole thing, for instance. Who knows? And if you are in the habit of qualifying those things which may or may not be possible in the eyes, or kingdom, of God, you are a braver soul than I.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
