A "belief" is a mental construct that is not required to be connected to reality.
The mind can believe anything about anything.
It takes self observation and introspection to discern whether what you are using to think with (your thoughtware) is a belief or not.
Ignoring this distinction is like not checking to see if the book you are reading is fiction or nonfiction.
A belief does not require you to look around inside of yourself at your internal reality
(for example, at your level of unconscious fear that is being covered up by the belief),
or to look around outside of yourself at external reality
(for example, at how the current level of methane in the atmosphere (1875 ppb) equates to a global temperature of +16 degrees Centigrade higher than what has been average over the past 800,000 years).
Where did you get your beliefs?
Why do you have them?
What if you are finished with your beliefs, in the same way that a butterfly is finished with its cocoon as it flies into the world as an adult?
How can you do that?
Beliefs are stopping the liquid state of consciousness.
By holding on to an inflexible, unliving, petrified belief the Box (your psychological Survival Strategy) creates rigidity. Rigidity seems fine to the Box, because the Box (along with your Gremlin) are dedicated to keeping things the same so the outcome can be controlled so that you can survive. Merely continue surviving... that is the goal of the Box.
Imaging seeing an army of marching of soldiers. What drives these (mostly men... but more and more these days, including women who are trying to conquer the patriarchy by joining the army...) to march in rows to the follow the commands of a 'superior' officer? It is a belief.
As you were born and enter whichever culture and age you were born into, you start of not knowing. Yet your survival depends on adapting to and being accepted by your caretakers. The best way to relate to them (the only obvious solution to the problem...) is to melt into and take on their assumptions, expectations, explanations, language, habits, style, and yes, their Beliefs.
You simply start copying the script as you encounter it as a way to interact with the world.
The result is that much of what you hold as 'an accurate and appropriate interpretation of the world' is believed to be true, but may not be. Without having the power to choose about it you end up absorbing Standard Human Intelligence Thoughtware (S.H.I.T.) which in the modern world in thoughtware from a capitalist patriarchal empire.
As a baby and up through childhood, the strategy of being a chameleon with your surroundings works well. As you reach 18 years old, this may no longer be true.
By approximately 18 years of age, you have built (often by 'accident' and with the help of 'coincidence'... which is E.C.C.O. at work...) enough Matrix to hold the Consciousness (which shows up as Responsibility - because Responsibility is applied Consciousness... Consciousness in action...) to be Responsible for starting over at zero and making your own choices about what is true, what is useful, and what is the best way to live in the world.
What this means is that, if you experience in yourself the application of any Belief, either in yourself or in others, what you are experiencing is the Child Ego State in action, which is a desperate move to resort to childhood survival strategies.
Effectively taking Radical Responsibility for Belief in yourself involves very different approaches than effectively taking Radical Responsibility for Belief in another person, a group of people that you are a member of (such as a department in a company, or a family),
Disbelief is still belief.
Disbelief is believing that a belief is not valid, or not true.
See if you are holding on to Disbelief with as much rigidity as you have been holding on to Belief.
Living In Flow
It is the awareness of this state and calling it out which can create fluidity in 5 bodies again.
"Results don’t care about our explanation. We need a useful explanation if we’re going to improve, but denying the results doesn’t change the results.
"Beliefs are powerful. They’re personal. They can have a significant impact on the way we engage with ourselves and others. But results are universal and concrete, and no matter how much we’d like them to go away, there they are.
"We each still need a narrative and we still need our individual outlook. But over the last century, we’ve had to make more and more room for the systems that create results. Our shared reality demands it."
