I had a fun time a few years ago here on these forums seeking out a belief that is the absolute truth. Couldn't find any!
But I've found lots of operating beliefs -- that is, beliefs that I experience as supporting me and working really well, even though they're not absolutely or unquestionably true. I don't feel any need or desire to rid myself of those.
Cool. I intend to get to the point (if I'm not there, yet) where even "what is, is" is an operative thing.
But, then, it sounds as though you've simply accepted What Is. Is that the case?
Otherwise, I find the term, "operative" now in play--"operative" beliefs vs. "absolute" beliefs, and since "what is, is" is operative and not absolute for me, then am I not there, also?
