All of our beliefs are built upon references. Our references form the foundational building blocks of everything that we have come to believe about ourselves, others and about life.
References are simply pieces of evidence that we have collected over time about certain things in the real world. They are created as a result of personal experience; when taking account of people’s actions and opinions; when we find new information; when we visualize or imagine concepts, and when we respond emotionally to the events and circumstances in our lives.
When similar references are coupled together in our mind, we begin to form ideas about certain things. Additional references will turn those ideas into opinions. These opinions have an even deeper layer of certainty about them.
Eventually over time, many references built around a specific topic area or concept will create a belief.
