Belief Systems

"Some people change when they see the light, others when they feel the heat" - Caroline Schoeder


Beliefs Without Reason - by Bob Dick

We frequently cling to beliefs for no logical reason other than the fact that we have always believed them and feel impelled to defend them at all costs.

In another contribution from one of the Bob Dick websites, he explores how these beliefs are imbedded in our subconscious by childhood  teaching, given without adequate explanation.  Injunctions from authority figures, parental "drivers", and so on.

How do these beliefs survive?  How are they to be challenged?

Bob Dick provides some fascinating insights and prescriptions for change.
