No one’s beliefs lie stagnant from the time of their creation, yet everyone must always come home. That is to say, incorporating past beliefs (coming home) is a vital process in creating new ones which cannot stand alone. Core values must grow with the individual as they experience life to a greater and fuller degree. Knowing how, when and what to modify is the pressing question of change, but old beliefs should not be rejected altogether. This conflict produces the line between one belief and another, one side and another and this line should not be erased. The only way to reconcile them is to recognize the truth in each without discarding either and embrace the tension that it creates.
