How have you broke through your limiting beliefs?
Have you broke through some limiting beliefs? How did you do it? What worked and what didn't?
Anything else you want to include would be appreciated, but I really want to know the 'how' of it all.
Religion. I used to be religious, but it was in my teens and partially to just fit in. Once I hit my 20s, I started looking into arguments for and against and tried to keep an open mind. It got me interested in learning about science, physics, chemistry, biology - you name it. In the end, I came to the conclusion that these religious views I held were simply impossible to justify. This might make others mad (disagreeing with religion tends to do that), but it's the only example I have.
I looked into Zen and discovered that everybody carries a collection of thoughts, mostly from others. The essence of Zen is to let go of the thoughts. When this happens, total freedom and enlightenment is the result.

Would religious and non religious separation help anything?Such as having towns for religious people where they can have God taught in schools and keep their beliefs. Also letting them keep their own laws on abortion, gay marriage, and other social issues. Then having towns where there is zero...

I recently saw a question posted with a side note: for believers only. I know there are a variety of religious people on the hub, and I do not have a problem with it. It is your right to believe how you want. But isn't hubpages a forum that is open to all members? Personally, I find it very...
