what do you believe?

George Whitfield, The great British evangelist, was speaking to a man about his soul.

“Sir, what to you believe?” He asked the man.

“I believe what my church believes.” the man replied respectfully.

“And what does your church believe?”

“The same thing that I believe.”

“And what do both of you believe?” the preacher inquired again.

“We both believe the same thing.” was the only reply he could get.

Once I stumbled upon a woman saying “One day suddenly I realised that I have my own brain and I don’t need to just borrow others thoughts and lend my time and energy to support it. I realised that I never figured out what actually I believe in to exert my energy towards manifesting it in my life.”

I think it’s common in many sectors of society.

Her perpetual displeasure arising from the hypocrisy in the society underneath the semblance of religion, culture as well as the conditioning for compliance urged her to put down the impressions in her mind.

She describes herself as -- a soulmate, a life alighted on the earth catching the rhythm passing by her. A tinge of joy colours her world and lays its feet on the land where revellers are awaiting her to get into the groove.
