We’ve all got one.

A rigidly held system of beliefs, which have no basis in reality.

We all believe in something; usually that what we believe is the truth.

Unexamined beliefs are not the truth, nor can they tell us about the truth.

Beliefs occur in the mind; they are conditioned patterns of thought. Christianity, Buddhism, Atheism, Conservatism, Materialism, and so on: these are nothing but conditioned patterns of thought. To believe in any concept at all is to move further away from the truth.

Everything we think we know is nothing but a deeply entrenched opinion; usually someone else’s.

We swallow our feed without asking what’s in it. Like sheep.
