Everyone has faith in something. Mostly in our own ideas about the larger universe. This prayer is for almost all:I did not know the meaning of “Aho” and looked it up. The two definitions seem to perfectly captured a problem all humankind faces. What means something to one person or group may mean something totally different to another person or group. We all turn thoughts and beliefs to meet our needs; all beliefs, including those based on a religious theology, are personal and individual.
Which to me means we should stop worrying about what people believe and concern ourselves with acts. Moreover, the acts of a person are not the acts of all in that group.
Holding all in a group or most in a group responsible for acts of others in the same group is twisted thinking known as generalizing from one to many.
As said, by many including, Alexandre Dumas, “All generalizations are dangerous, even this one.”
EMOtIONAL FITNESS TRAINING TIP
The more you think you know, the more you need to think about what you do not know. For knowing leads to generalizing without thinking.
Gregory Bateson, described as an English anthropologist, social scientist, linguist, visual anthropologist, semiotician and cyberneticist, was a careful thinker. He believed the more views of something the closer one got to reality.
Thinking more about that, it only holds true if those viewing something are not interpreting it from the same personal point of view.
Complicated isn’t it? Which is why the Buddhist praise the Beginner’s Mind mean a mind that knows nothing.

This blog post was not inspired by this WordPress DAILY PROMPT — The Golden Hour — 6:00AM: the best hour of the day, or too close to your 3:00AM bedtime?
However the post relates to it a bit. For My Golden Hour remains any time I connect with the universe in a way similar to what the Buddhists call Being One With All. Here’s a poster coach that talks about how to do that.
