Do you hold your beliefs lightly or tightly? When I hold them tightly, I arrogantly believe everyone should believe as i do. When I hold them lightly, I appreciate other's perspectives/points-of-view, even if they may not be mine. The spiritual path is not about trying to get rid of or not have beliefs. It is about holding them lightly because you know that they are simply one perspective among billions. When we cling to a belief, we are stuck. When we hold it lightly we are not stuck... we are free.
