In day to day life we are confronted with many opportunities to make decisions. Unfortunately many people struggle with this process due to fear, fear of making the wrong or incorrect decision.
The simple reason this happens is because of duality. Duality is when two almost contrasting things happen at the same time. It maybe that this duality is a good thing or a bad thing, but in this instance it becomes an issue and an annoyance. There seems to be a strong dichotomy between the HEART and the MIND which continues to create imbalances in our thought process.
There is no on and off switch in the mind. Most of the time we cannot even tell the difference between the heart and the mind when you ask for guidance or when you ask yourself to make a decision. We usually get an initial heart response followed by a logical brain response that will completely override our initial thought process.
Today Id like to help you learn to make the right decisions. Your heart always has the right answer, always. Your mind is not the friend you think it is. It will happily lead you astray and to places you never wanted to go. Curiosity killed that cat. Remember that!
Do not mind, the mind.
Try to stop the mind from controlling your true decisions and feelings. The mind will always lie to you, its kind of like the government. How? Well the government are more than willing to tell you some truths just to get you on their side. They sucker you in, make you feel like they protect you and care for you and when they have you under their control, BAM they lie to you and induce fear into your heart and life. The reason they get away with appearing that they never lied to you is because they lured you in with a high percentage of truth and facts etc You believe they are honest and you put your trust into them so when they do decide to tell lies, you don’t believe they are lies, you believe they are honest and that they wouldn’t do such a thing to you.
Your mind works very much the same way. Sometimes it helps you make safe logical decisions, those small practical decisions like not to head butt the window or to jump into a fire. You believe your mind is there for you and has your back. The problem is, is that it doesn’t have your back, it is your enemy. How crazy does that sound? MAD right? Wrong. The mind is very much powered by the ego. The ego WANTS to control you, its wants to survive inside of you and will do whatever it takes to do so. The ego is both good and bad. When you are young the ego wants to teach you, this is a good thing, it is something we need. As we get older we should try and drop the ego and learn to let it not control us. The ego makes us do silly things like when we get angry and we lose control or when we feel hurt and we act spitefully etc etc The ego becomes more of a problem the older and wiser we become. We must learn to control it or it will continue to control us. It lives in duality with the heart and they both fight for the right to speak. Unfortunately the heart is much quieter than the mind and usually always loses if you are untrained to differentiate between the two voices.
Do not allow the mind to continue to sabotage your ability to understand or experience the truth. Forget logic, the truth and the right way for YOU to do things isn’t always logical. Life doesn’t need to be logical. I know you are thinking, of course it does! NO. Look, you spend life searching for love, love has no logical meaning, definition or explanation it is just LOVE. You want it, you yearn for it and you will do anything to feel it. Love is not logical and you run after it! So don’t tell me life has to be logical at all 🙂
Forget logic and stop allowing the mind to question your hearts response to a question or decision it has to make. It may seem initially illogical but it will always work out. Go with your heart always. You will not regret it!
Lastly your mind and ego will make hasty regrettable decisions for you when you are in a place of hurt. This is when you are most vulnerable to a potential sabotage by your ego. Be patient when you are angry and upset, hold off, even if it is really hard to do so. You will most likely end up making the worst decision of your life and potentially get yourself into a bigger mess. Teach yourself to remain calm and listen to your heart when you have withdrawn from the problem that is causing the pain.
P.S Your mind has been there with you since you where born. It WILL be hard to retrain yourself to think or to make decisions BUT you can do it.
Trust you heart, trust your journey and be loving always.
Act out of order, or make a bad decision will only lead to creating bad karma for yourself.
