Belief

This page is to assist my memory, beliefs that often crop up in conversation. First I list the categories of posts on this blog so you can filter by subject. The photo above is of an old fascination in belief, Sufism, the whirling dervishes. For a time I tried to whirl, quite a belief whirling to become still.

Belief is very much a part of human existence, both religious belief and opinion belief. I believe in many things and also something other. Concepts like good and evil unquestionably exist in consciousness which many say renders reality, further described on the links on the book page. I am a believer, religion too. but not a system thereof, I think all religions account for a human questioning, and consciousness.
