Belief or Knowledge

“Believe? No, I don’t believe. I know.” –Psychologist Carl Jung’s response when asked toward the end of his life if he believed in God.

Some people believe in things. It seems that they believe so that they can argue with people who do not believe exactly with them.

There are still people who believe that all that moon walking stuff was staged in Hollywood. And I mean Neal Armstrong, not Michael Jackson’s moon walking.

Why do we “practice” spiritual things?

Maybe we got a nudge from God. And we began to pursue.

And then we experienced.

And reflected experience backed up by study and prayer (meditation) leads to knowledge. Which leads to wisdom.

Which leads to a decrease of arguing. And deeper understanding.
