We are programmed to believe

Post by AiR_Ravimelwani on Thu Oct 08, 2015 7:18 am

Whatever we believe in today, is a program that has been set into our hardware when we were born. As we grew up, we were programmed to believe in a God, in the heavens above, in the fear of God, in faith. We were taught that the Gods in temples, in churches and mosques are the Gods we must pray to and when looking at the image of God, we believed that was God.

But for spiritual aspirants, those who want to progress on the spiritual path, they have to review the program that has been set in them. They have to re-program their mind by questioning, by probing, by asking with curiosity; try to understand who we are, where we have come from and where we will go. We must ask - what is life and what is death? What is the power within each one of us - the soul, the spirit, the atman; whether there is life after death or not, and whether the law of cause and action the law of Karma is true. There are many questions that need answers, but these questions will never get answers, unless we are ready to re-program ourselves.

As long as we continue to play the same program, the same music will run in our mind. The same thoughts will go through our head and we will never be able to change. But if we are ready to review our life-program, our religion, our spirituality, our beliefs, then there is a possibility that we may be able to look at something new; start a new spiritual journey, a new belief system, because questioning will give many answers that we never believed were possible. But yes, it all starts when we realize that the program of our life, a program that runs the philosophy of our way of life needs to be questioned, needs to be reviewed, needs to be changed.
