“Belief produces the acceptance of existence. That is why you can believe what no one else thinks is true. It is true for you because it was made by you. (T14)”
1 – No One Else Agrees with You
The second sentence in this passage is the pertinent one. Many of us become lost in illusions of our own making, and those around us know the mistake that we are making. They may try to tell us, but we may not listen. Usually we don’t listen, to our regret later on.
2 – Pioneers?
It might be helpful, if we find ourselves in a position in which we are alone, the only one believing as we do, if we are pioneers of some sort or are we simply mistaken?
3 – We Have Projected our Perception
We have made the world which we perceive. That is why we believe what no one else thinks is true.
4 – An Ego-Inspired World
What a sad commentary on the ego-inspired world! Surely we lead confused lives until we let go of our misconceptions. Then and only then can we turn to a better way. And the Course is the better way that many of us have accepted as our truth.
I have been guilty of believing what nobody else thought was true. Most of us have.
May we leave these misconceptions behind as we enter a new world lit by your love.
