From the previous post:
… any belief creates boundaries for life, for what can and should happen. So when life shows up outside of these boundaries, or even when we fear/hope that life may show up outside of these boundaries, there is also stress. When there are beliefs, we get stress from two sources.
This is something else to explore about beliefs: when we believe a story, when we take it as an absolute truth, there is both hope and fear that life will show up outside of the boundary created by the belief.
We hope, because somewhere we know that no story represent an absolute truth.
And we fear, because we have invested time and energy into the belief, and we (think we) are not familiar with the landscape that opens up without it.
