“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.” ― Tony Robbins
"Your Thoughts Are Either Creative or Destructive..."
Very true... This is why it is so important to believe in Reality and what is provably true. They say Faith is a gift. No, I say Faith is based on Knowing.
There is positive belief which ultimately make the man whole and thus he lives
and there is negative belief (doubt)which divides the man and thus he dies.
What is belief based on, Kess… you don't have to answer: I know for you, Belief is a given … So, maybe faith-based Belief is a gift, as well.
Better question: What is knowing (the truth) based on?
Truth itself cannot be based on any other thing, for that thing will be the Truth.
Truth is self existent and self evident....This is why it is absolute.
Truth is existence, Love, Life (Consciousness),knowledge, Belief (which is faith)
Falsehood Exist as hate, death, unbelief ( which is doubt) ignorance.
none of these belong to existence.
The word faith is used by both the knowledgeable and the ignorant.
And each define it according to himself.
So to the believer, Faith is knowledge, which is life eternal.
To the unbeliever Faith is ignorance, which is death eternal
For knowledge to be knowledge it must incorporate the understanding of ignorance.
And if not then it will exist as ignorance itself.
Ignorance is just that totally ignorant.
In the end knowledge must exist as Love, otherwise
it is self deception and is ignorance.

Faith and trust in God are like the two elements of water - hydrogen and oxygen - you can't have water without both of them together. You can't be a Christian without having faith and trust together. ...
