I’m amazed by how people strongly restrict their lifes through belief. From wikipedia you can find that belief is “a conviction held without proof of it’s validity”. And this does not only apply to religion but also to other aspects of our lifes. Have you ever wondered why you have to pay a certain price for something? Have you ever wondered why there are ups and downs in the stock markets and rating agencies? Have you ever wondered why rules and laws are not equal in every country?
Well, what I can tell you is that nothing of this was imposed by Nature, it was all built by humans, by their imagination, with the intent to make people’s lifes easier. And it may have worked for a while but now that is not the case, it no longer helps humans and we have found that it caused a great imbalance in Nature as well, so, why don’t we just change it?
On the one hand this system is what agrees better with our egoism, isn’t it? We love to feel that we have or have the potential possibility to have more and more things and more and more than anybody else, and that’s really the main problem. But on the other hand we can also say that humans got so used to this system that they can not think outside of it. Economists, sociologists, analysts of all kind, they can not see outside of this frame, they can not see that all this is a fantasy, an imagination built by ourselves and from which we can get rid of any time we want. Just like that.
So, there you have it. Next time you hear something about how the gold is so expensive or how we can not get rid of debt, think that it may be no more than a belief built by our imagination and egoism.
