As rational thinkers a lot us will not accept having followed such orthodox ventures cause our logical minds mock our hypocrisy. But a lot of us succumb to fears , insecurities and vulnerabilities and fall prey to blind faith. The truth is nobody realises when these forces overcome rationality and the digression occurs.
It could be as common as wearing yellow on Thursday for good luck to as complicated as keeping knife below a child’s bed to avoid evil spirits. These notions thrive on hidden desires, ambitions, insecurities and weaknesses.
During a recent conversation I was educated that human mind loves negativity. In simple words ,our brain reacts more strongly to stimuli it deems negative. *There is a greater surge in electrical activity. Thus, our attitudes are more heavily influenced by downbeat news than good news.*(excerpt). The entire market of blind faith works on this principle selling fear, invoking negative thoughts, influencing hidden vulnerabilities.
A confident mind with faith in oneself, positive light ( energy, sun, holy spirit of any kind/tribe/religion) can win any war. A psuedo armour can do nothing but distract you from the problem. It can enthuse confidence but that will be temporary. A self built belief system will guard you in absence of any such armour too. You will fall but with belief in self and deriving energy from a positive source you will rise winner while falling prey to black home of orthodoxy you will only rise equipped with more fear and insecurity.
