The “right” belief system

What makes your belief to be the “right” one?
What is the standard that we have chosen to call our beliefs as “the truth”?
Is it your particular experience?
Is that enough to call it the “truth”? When you proselytize to “help others,” aren’t you truly helping only yourself to support your beliefs?

Have we ever watched a bunch of pelicans flying by the beach in a formation?
Our inquisitive mind asked: Why do they fly in that particular way?
Our “research” responded that this is an aerodynamical efficient way to fly. We believe the “why” has been responded. Fighting planes will copy that formation, after all; they have a good logical answer of why do it that way.

Have we ever wondered how pelicans know that? Have they ever done some research on their own? Oh! Our answer is: “It is instinctive.” Our minds are happy because we have an “answer.”
But, how that “instinct” was put into them? Moreover, how is that humans have lost “instinct” and replaced it with intellectual research and belief?
Here goes another answer: “God created them that way, BUT he gave humans free will to think on their own.” The mind is happy again! How fortunate we are! How special!
Or if we are not into the belief of God, we can say: “Nature has its own intelligence.” Wonderful answer!

We know nothing. We try to make sense of everything according to our conditionings. Once we come to terms with this, then our minds will not have so much power over us.

A belief will be just a belief. The research will be just that, a “research.” Nothing to do with “truth.” For we can observe “facts” in Life; but we can only know our own “truth.”
That inner honesty is what is called at every step in our lives to feel fulfilled, to feel at peace with ourselves, to feel that Life has meaning and we are part of that.

Next time we see pelicans flying in such formation, we will be at awe of seeing that mystery.
Life is a mystery. Appreciate it. Enjoy it. Be grateful of the opportunity to be able to witness that. Let that honest vibe expand and touch others without wanting to. Just by being there with them.
There is no other “spirituality.” That is my experience, my “truth,” my “belief.” It is not “right” and for that, it cannot be “wrong.” There is nothing to defend, nothing to convince to others, nothing to make into a “teaching” to “improve” others.
That ignorance is bliss.
