Faith and Beliefs Are They The Same Thing?
Posted on November 7, 2012 by Seeker ...

HI dear friends and followers. I am pleased to see you here today. I have for you another interesting posting on Spirituality concerning Faith and Beliefs. Is there a difference between the two? Read on and find out.


Faith and beliefs are not synonymous, many different beliefs are held by people with faith.

Belief is an opinion derived by experience. Whereas faith is a conviction that requires no experience. Beliefs are derived from critical thinking through evaluating information and evidences to which one is exposed. Faith is above and separate from our minds and from critical thinking. Faith sees beliefs for what they are, limiting and limited.

As conscious Beings with awareness we can recognize the varied beliefs derived and subscribed to through human intellect. Beliefs surrounding god, nature, politics, religion, theology, money, government, race, etc. etc. All these belief systems require one to engage intellectually with personal experience or shared knowledge.

Faith requires no such conditioning. Genuine faith cannot be shaken by any belief system. Faith allows for and encourages a willingness to explore ALL beliefs. Faith allows one to quickly see beyond the limitations of any belief.

Faith allows one to recognize that beliefs are prejudiced from one’s own point of view. Faith is fair-minded treating all viewpoints equally without regard for one’s own feelings or vested interests. Faith delivers a person from the prison of beliefs and delivers an awareness that all beliefs are limiting and actually work against faith. Faith is open to all beliefs understanding that beliefs are the framework that builds societies and are adopted for harmonious living.

Faith moves one through the contradictions and complexity of human beliefs allowing the willingness to explore and confirm all beliefs in an open-minded manner knowing they are limited to those who hold to them.

By being open to all beliefs and conditioned thought patterns we encourage unity and oneness. By holding to one belief as true over another denies faith which is open oneness and completeness. Resist limiting beliefs embrace the abundance of faith.






What goes on in our heads is a network of ideas and beliefs that have been formulated by our own experiences, our community, our society and our dna. What control do we exercise over our development? In Kabbalah they say we have no freedoms we are products of our environment. The only control we exercise in our own development is the environment we put ourselves into.

Chances are the person most open-minded is the person who has held many beliefs but is always questioning those beliefs. The process of asking the question is the only way to get the answer. The truth is in the question not in the answer. Any answer by definition is limited to the perspective of the individual making the conclusion.

Note, in my own experience, it is not so much that I have discarded old ideas and beliefs, as it is more like I have added much to those first conclusions. So that the conclusion I have at present looks very different than the original, in other words many more additional working parts added and I keep an open mind for new parts to be added. 


Once we believe we have “the truth” we are done growing. Until we question our own conclusions we will stay stuck in “our truth”. Truth is in everything and in everyone; and until we can accept everyone and everything we will not obtain “the truth”.

Words and arguments are so limiting and weightywhile openness and love is so empowering and rich with blessings. The minute we feel the need to defend our position we are stuck in a limited belief.

We don’t stop a belief or drop an understanding we expand our understanding to encompass more. Most of us know what it’s like to be a small child believing in Santa Claus; we still believe just in larger more encompassing way. Learn how to open your heart and mind to what others have to say, especially those who disagree with your conclusions.

This is a fabulous way to fast-track your own understanding and spiritual development, we don’t need to defend our positions because there is nothing to defend. The truth is not a belief it’s a process. A process of accepting and understanding everything and everyone with love.

Stay open and stay loving with those with whom you disagree and you’ll see the wealth of wisdom that resides inside your own consciousness. No need to fix anyone else or prove your wisdom that’s the ego talking. Your path is a process of accepting … we call it ascension or elevation where you begin to see things from a much higher point of view.


Thank you very much again, dear friends, for visiting my blog. Please share your thoughts with us, if you will. Have a great day.


 ڰۣIn Loving Light from the Fairy Ladyڰۣ

  1. Yo nunca he perdido la Fé, sin embargo no es mi búsqueda, quizá por eso soy tolerante con las diferentes culturas, razas, religiones y formas de vida. Gracias por compartir Cindy!!
