IF YOU WANT SOMETHING BAD ENOUGH
POWER OF BELIEVING—Human spirit has the amazing power to imagine. Let’s go into the realm of God. For the sake of argument say God does not exist beyond myth. But because mankind has forever sought answers to the unanswerable our ancestors have created God and wholeheartedly believe in her existence ever since. Thus God exists. Philosopher Franz Kafka nailed that concept in the early 20th century.
“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired."
