Belief vs. Knowing


IMG_1836In these times, there are many things that we know. People are pretty darn amazing.

Heck, they can do just about anything to a body part such as the heart. They are doing amazing things with stem cells, though you have to travel outside the USA. (which more and more people are doing, and my friend Lesta says that insurance companies are actually offering that now!?!?)

But even if they figured out how to create a heart, how to create a body, then how would the create the Spirit?

There are a lot of things we don’t know.

We cannot even make a piece of pine straw.

OSHO says that people who have “beliefs” have some common characteristics about them. They are sure that they are right. They really want you to believe what they believe. And if you don’t then you are on “the other team”.

What lies in-between beliefs and knowing or not knowing, is a beautiful thing; What resonates with you.

After a childhood of being offered “It is this way or it is hell!” it was wonderful to find that there are other ways. There are many other ways. There are many religions, many spiritual teachers and books, many different idea’s and explanations.

Today I have no unanswered questions. Everything makes sense. But, the answers to my questions aren’t really belief’s, because they are simply what makes sense to me.

As far as knowing goes, my answers may not be right. I don’t know if they are or not.

The point is that it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that everything makes sense to me. The answers to my questions resonate with me, or you could say that they just make the most sense.

So things are settled within me. And I don’t have the characteristics of someone with “beliefs” as OSHO spoke of so often. It doesn’t matter to me if you agree or don’t agree. I don’t even know if I’m right. And also, I am not sure that you are wrong if you don’t go along with me.

If you have unanswered questions and things don’t really make sense or resonate with you, then search until you find it.

What makes the most sense to you?
