Belief System

We form our belief system based on the evidence gathered from our five senses, family traditions, the authority figures in our life, the friends we associate with, and what all these reveal to us. A belief system consists of a set of mutually supportive beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate to religions,  philosophies, ideologies, or a combination of these.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Even when a group of individuals belong to the same belief system, they rarely adhere to the system in the same manner because everyone hears and understands things differently. Each person forms their own belief system. We form a belief system by using the evidence we gain from our five physical senses and the analytical and critical thinking part of us.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Education and life experience teach us about cause and effect as we use our logic and rational to form our beliefs. This enables us to grow and mature, and it teaches us about what we want from our choices. Be objective about adopting old family traditions and determine if they are still valid.                                                                             Religion, politics, and philosophy may be formed through your family’s biases and prejudices, so be wary when developing your primary belief system. Parents, family, pastors, and teachers, and doctors all represent authority figures. Whose authority do you use to form your belief system?
