Over the years, I have come to respect the power of people’s beliefs.  The thing that has amazed me is that a belief is more than just an idea – it seems to shift the way in which we actually experience ourselves and our lives.  What we believe about ourselves can actually hold us hostage.   It’s true:  “We do not see things as they are.  We see them as we are.”

A belief is like a pair of sunglasses.  When we wear a belief and look at life through it, it is difficult to convince ourselves that what we see is not what is real.  Without sunglasses on, life looks a lot ‘greener’ to us.  Knowing what is real requires that we remember that we are wearing ‘glasses’.
