Human beings are blessed with the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that will impact them positively or negatively. We all have the capacity to create meanings that empower us, but so many of us never tap into it or even recognize it. If we do not develop a faith that there is a reason for unexplainable tragedies of life, then we are destroying our capacity to truly live. Beliefs have the capacity to override the impact of drugs on the body. Norman Cousins in an interview has given a great example about how strongly our beliefs affect our physical bodies.
At a football game in Montere Park, a Los Angeles suburb, several people experienced the signs of food poisoning. The examining physician told that the cause was a certain soft drink from the dispensing machines, because all of his patients had purchased some prior to becoming ill. when the announcement was made, few people who even had not gone near the machine became ill!When it was discovered that dispensing machine was not the culprit, people immediately and miraculously recovered.
So. . . we need to realize that our beliefs have the capacity to make us sick or make us healthy in a moment. Beliefs have been proved to affect our immune systems. Most importantly, beliefs can either give us the resolve to take action or weaken and destroy our drive. Sometimes we develop beliefs that create limitations or strengths, within a specific context. For instance. . . how we feel about anything literally. So if you see it, beliefs dominate every aspect of our lives, either positively or negatively. Once accepted, our beliefs become unquestioned commands to our nervous system and they have the power to expand or destroy the possibilities of our present and future. So if we want to direct our lives, we must take conscious control over our beliefs!
