“You are made up of billions of beliefs. Beliefs about your body, beliefs about your intellectual worth, beliefs about how attractive you are. Beliefs about God, sin, life after death, morality, beliefs about the tribe or society you live in, beliefs about your family and what should or should not be done, and so on. Spiritually, these beliefs are part of your evolution, and in a way they are good because they allow you to step beyond them. By dealing with this weakness, bit by bit, you begin to believe in yourself. And so when the tribe says to you, “Throw two oranges into the river to appease the hippopotamus god, or the crops will not grow,” you have the courage to say, “Baloney.” And you go out and buy a bag of fertilizer instead.
Spiritual growth basically means going beyond mass thinking, to a point where you have so much confidence in your reality that you know you can stand alone. In the process, you discover that you are the Living Spirit – eternal, immortal, and infinite – that in fact you are limitless.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Affirmations”
