Believing a lie

Believing a lie

Growing up our families was among the poorest in our street and in our church

I had never met anyone who was a Hlatshwayo who was doing well financially. I picked up the belief that the Hlatshwayo surname was cursed and all of us were poor.

It’s fascinating that when you have a belief, you find evidence for the truth of that belief or rather you avoid any evidence that dispels it.

It was literally, I kid you not, only in my 20s that I started meeting or hearing about Hlatshwayo’s who were successful and now I meet them all the time. But up until that time this was an absolute truth to me.

How do you imagine it affected my sense of self worth; and as a result what I allowed myself to attempt and the energy that accompanied those attempts?

I believe that even if there is an ultimate truth, all of us have a glimpse of a perspective of that truth. Because that perspective is shaped by our world view which is shaped by our experiences, what we’ve been exposed to.

If that’s the case then that one should deliberately choose their beliefs. Choose beliefs that align with their ultimate intentions. Continuously examine the beliefs they hold, whether they align with their ultimate intentions or not, and release those that don’t.

Isn’t that the purpose of life,to fulfill our ultimate intentions?
