Language, Beliefs, and Mind-Sets

Belief Systems

What does any of this have to do with belief systems? Nothing at all – and everything; it was just a lead-in to say that we ALL are products of our belief systems. Our beliefs may be based on faith, logic, hard science or a combination of the three, and usually are. But regardless of the basis or foundation, they color our perceptions of the world around us.

On a sliding scale, acupressure can be considered at the bottom of a wide-ranging belief system. One need not feel or sense anything, nor even believe in it to have it work. It can be done purely mechanically; apply pressure to the points, get results. But after a couple of months working with it, I suddenly asked myself – if this works and I accept it, why am I rejecting everything else that goes along with it? I didn’t just jump in and immediately start accepting everything else. What I did was suspend my disbelief. I stopped just automatically rejecting the rest of it and, frankly, started treating the whole subject with an open instead of closed mind.
