Recognising your true nature is not a matter of faith or belief but instead of direct, clear observation of the way things actually are. If we take the "scientific method" to it's logical conclusion then there is no need to take anything we have learned about ourselves and the nature of reality from other people as true but instead actually rely on our own experience. When we look clearly there is nothing that has an independent nature, separate or apart from the clarity that is looking through your eyes or hearing through your ears. All the "things" that seemed so real and compelling immediately have a completely different context and we can finally begin to relax the obsessive rearranging of space to try and make ourselves feel better, phew.
