all beliefs.

mold us

create the very lens we see our lives thru.

what if you spun everything you believe

UPside Down?

 

they are

after all

ONLY BELIEFS!

yep.

that doesn’t mean they are real.

 

‘What do you MEAN?!’ you say.

yep.

question all of it.

what really is ‘good’ or ‘bad’?

right or wrong?

 

all only a product of our beliefs

which are a product of our experiences.

that’s all.

 

challenge them.

consider another way.

consider that EVERYTHING you feel to be true

is

actually NOT.

right now

because the earth just dropped out from under you.

now

what are you standing on?

 

what the hell?

 

stand on flexibility.

stand on intuition.

stand in flow.

stand IN now.

swim to the other side of your beliefs and come up for new air.
