Your Beliefs Do you know what your beliefs are? Your beliefs are what makes you happy right now - or sad. You are what you believe you are – you can accomplish what you believe you can accomplish. September The Buddha was sitting under a tree talking to his disciples when a man came and spit on his face. He wiped it off, and he asked the man, “What next? What do you want to say next?” The man was a little puzzled because he himself never expected that when you spit on somebody’s face, he will ask, “What next?” He had no such experience in his past. He had insulted people and they had become angry and they had reacted.
