I love your article regarding its focus on awareness. I don’t get exactly that this conflicts with belief. I do see what you mean that we should not accept standardized versions as counterfeits of the real versions of natural things which are as you indicate always changing and therefore unique and beyond belief so to speak. However, I don’t necessarily agree that belief is a nasty word or a nasty tool. For example, I can believe that everything and everyone is unique. Having said that, I do respect your approach of calling out ‘belief’ as a means of categorizing and labeling things so that we think we understand them.
