But the story behind the scene is different. Not quite a bit but absurdly different I believe it is difficult to comprehend.
Because what I believe is not what you believe in. We both have come to a conclusion of a reality that satisfies our belief. Not the actuality.
Belief is not just something that only humans picture to reality, animals to believe what picture they precirve and environment the live and circumstances they go through.
So what we do, may it be good or bad ultimately becomes part of our habit and the habits form the repetition cycle.
I have observed that it is the nature of biological beings (and most probably at molecular levels or maybe really law of nature) to what we feel strongly driven in is actually half of the next step already taken. Taking steps to fulfill desire that meets our expectation already seems so fulfilling the joy within starts to show you a blur picture. A joyfull rewarding experience.
And this picture slowly engraves in the neuroplastic brain with formation of more complex neural network. Each action you perform, words you speak will form benchmark of success from previous steps (a lived experience) will always be less harder because by now even your brain knows what to do to succeed. Now I would like to repeat myself, every fulfilling step that meet replenishing desire is easier than before. And now this is what traps us. And this trap is our belief. And our belief is guarded by nothing just what makes us happy. A small picture of reality formed of the world we live in.
To some people eating non-veg feels okay, to some cheating or lying is ok, to some sticking to honesty , discipline or organised is ok and to some violence is the way and to some negotiation by peace seems be the only way. You may think whatever you do is right from your perspective but this is partial truth because what we do is the hard wired neural network formed of a self rewarding gene of selfishness we all posses. You become "used to". I believe this is the saddest thing to say. Because unwillingly you have given up your actually right norm to a what now seems right to you.You are either driven by your belief or by the belief of others. You have become slave of a belief. And you tend to end up living a belief that may not be true. This is an instance in which logical reasoning is superseded by belief. Even if you do what is logically not right will always seems right to you.
It was in 2014 when neuroscientists engaged in a reconciliation of critical-period studies with the more recent research showing how the brain can, and does, change in response to hitherto unsuspected stimuli. Our belief is merely part of neural circuit formed in the neuroplastic brain inside of our head.
Not the belief but maybe the nature of belief and probably lot other things gets embedded as instructions into our DNA which further becomes part our genetic material that we pass to next generation of reproducing naturally.
