beliefs

A Quote by Jane Roberts on seth, jane roberts, present moment, beliefs, past, and past beliefs

Seth emphatically says: THE PRESENT IS THE POINT OF POWER.  According to him the point of power is where flesh and matter meet with spirit.  That juncture embodies the actions and beliefs we choose to draw from all previous points of power.  From our current present we project, for better or worse, those choices, plus any new ones we may decide upon, into each of the presents we'll be creating throughout the rest of our lives.  The contents of our projections, then, are of supreme importance. 

As Seth suggests through even a five minute exercise, in which we sit quietly and look about, we can become aware that the present is the point of power.  In his exercise, we gently remind ourselves that we aren't at the mercy of our past beliefs unless we think we are.  We have the full freedom to insert new creative goals in our point-of-power exercises.  Next, we relax, to give our fresh suggestions time to begin working within us.  Next, physically we make a simple gesture or act, no matter how modest, that is in line with our desires for the future.  Periodically we repeat the exercise --- but easily, without pressure, confident that we're doing well.  Action is thought in physical motion, Seth tells us.... In The Nature of Personal Reality Seth deals extensively with the point of power, its exercises and meanings and benefits.  See especially sessions 656-57 in Chapter 15.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on god, beliefs, morality, and virtue

People erect a concept of morality, of virtue, of holiness upon this false view of things; they ground good conscience upon faulty vision; they argue that no OTHER sort of vision has value anymore, once they have made theirs sacrosanct with the names of "God," "salvation" and "eternity."

A Quote by Jaya on beliefs

in

I think humans in general like to convert others to their own belief systems, because it somehow reinforces those beliefs for them. It's like: "Hey, if I can make these five people agree with me, then  yes, I must be right." And that feeling of 'being right', created from outside of themselves, then makes them feel safer somehow.

A Quote by Myra Ellen (Tori) Amos on love and beliefs

Sometimes you are forced to defend your beliefs.  Sometimes you are forced to look at relationships that aren't positive anymore.  There are times when I have had to make peace with the fact that I am at war.  And sometimes you have to fight those who do not want love to  conquer all.  

Tori Amos (1963 -)
