Impact of Belief

When it comes to religion, I have never been a believer in the traditional sense, which I always thought was a good thing. However, when it comes to other areas in life, it seems I have developed some entrenched beliefs over the years by leeching onto various future-driven rewards.

Today, I’m well aware of the fact that belief had a profound impact on my mind, and not always in a good way. So, how did I stop myself from being hypnotised and controlled by one mental thing after another? I delved into the nature of belief, including the rewards and punishments traditional belief systems provide.

The pages below trace the journey into my belief system, a journey which put me face to face with both God and the devil himself. They also reveal the role that belief systems play in cultural interactions all around the world, most of which benefit us greatly in our day-to-day lives. Perhaps the greatest revelation I have to share, however, is that although I lacked faith in the traditional sense, I discovered that I was not without faith altogether. It was just that my beliefs were on other things instead.
