Trust Your Soul And Stop Trying To Figure Everything Out
Figuring everything out
If you are anything like me you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure everything out. I like to know what the effects of my actions might be.
This could be a good thing. Like deciding how to treat people. After all, what goes around comes around, right?
However, trying to figure everything out can also be a detriment. Like venturing into a new business opportunity. If you overthink things too much you can build up enough fear that you never take the leap.
Well, I have something to tell you
We are never going to figure it all out? We simply don’t have all the information. As it says in the bible “For we know in part.” (1 Corinthians 13:9) So, stop trying to figure everything out.
Sometimes we do not know the effects of our actions until a later date. Even treating someone poorly can be used for good. It might be the one thing that person needed, at the time, to make them decide to make a change in their life.
There’s one huge mind
It is believed that there is one universal mind, one source of information available to all of us. And that our individual minds are windows or facets of that one source. Our human brains are simply one instrument for us to use to access this information. However, there are simply too many data points for us to hold onto. So, trying to figure everything out is useless.
And it’s perfectly okay
Because we have other ways of knowing besides using our intellect. We are intuitive beings. At times, we can believe in the direct revelation of the truth through a gut feeling or a hunch. There are times these ways of knowing can be expressed beautifully and without any logical understanding. And this is not some imaginary thing. Some things would never have come to be if we did not listen to our gut.
We must trust our soul
I’ve learned to trust my gut or the movements of my soul. I can’t explain what it is. It’s something bigger than the “I” I call myself. It’s a constant that is deep beneath the surface of my human self. Sometimes I sense it as a feeling of deep joy. At other times, it’s grief that presents itself. There have been times I was pulled in one direction and at other times I’ve felt a total repulsion towards something. I just feel it in my bones. I’ve learned that if I quiet myself, I can sense it. It will give me direction when I’m stuck. If I’m moving too fast, it will ask me to slow down or stop completely.
There is more to you than you can understand or explain. You are vast. You are infinite. There is a wisdom in the deepest depths of your being, and you can trust it. Stop trying to figure everything out and go out there and listen to your gut.
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do that. What the world needs is more people that have come alive. — Howard Thurman
Here’s an affirmation you can use:
I reveal the Truth of God in all that I do. I am guided in my steps today by a wisdom that is beyond words. I trust the Divine knowing that is revealed in the depths of my soul.
Can you think of a time when you listened to your gut and had positive results? Or, a time when you didn’t listen and later wish you had?
