The conscious leader knows that belief comes first.

He knows that reasons follow belief. He has seen that people believe their reasons to be the cause of events, when really the cause is outside of the reasons. The reasons come after the fact, as explanations to satisfy the mind. People who get stuck on reasons, or believe their own reasons too strongly, don’t move forward.

The conscious leader always asks, “What belief is being served by this action, or this person’s argument?” He sees the belief and challenges it. In this way, he is like the woodcutter who cuts the trunk of the tree, not the branches.

When the person listens and gets it, their whole life changes. He knows that without seeing what belief you are serving, you go around in circles and repeat the same patterns forever.

The conscious leader works on the level of belief.
