When a long cherished belief proves through our own personal experience to be false we have two options:
1. Cling desperately to the belief despite all evidence to the contrary, or
2. Let go of the belief with immense gratitude that we have been proven wrong once again.
Option 1 is not only heartbreaking and deadly for the one clinging, but incredibly frustrating for the people who love the clinger.
Option 2 can be initially quite painful, but oh so freeing and life expanding in the end. Each time we opt for Option 2, we pave the way for a larger and larger world with much more reliable vision.
