When we are born we have no knowledge of who we are. Our mum tells us who we are, our dad tells us who we are, our brothers and sisters tell us who we are, in fact everyone around us tells who we are based on what they believe we are.
Because we have no knowledge of who we are we believe what we are told. We agree with the image others project onto us, we invest our faith in that image.
That’s how we learn as children. We believe everything the adults tell us. Our faith in these beliefs is so strong that our life is controlled by these beliefs.
This process of surrendering to beliefs through agreement is called the domestication of humans.
