I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better.

Discover for yourself

The things you know without a doubt are the things you discover and experience for yourself. Though others can guide you, lecture you, persuade you, scold you or encourage you, what becomes a part of you is what you experience for yourself.

Your belief may indeed be strong and unwavering. Yet there is a difference between belief and certainty.

Certainty comes when you actually live your beliefs and put them into practice on an ongoing basis. For that is when you will discover and experience for yourself the essence of their truth.

It is interesting to speculate about what might and might not be true, what might and might not happen, what may or may not work. It is powerful indeed to know for sure.

What you’ve been told is a good starting point. Take it further, put it into practice and discover for yourself.

Honor your faith, your trust, your belief by bringing it all to life through your efforts. Truth will rise to a whole new level when you discover and experience it for yourself.
