We Need Never Fear Looking Within
We need never fear to look within. ACIM
I have learnt that ignoring either my intuition or a situation that must be dealt with which requires me tapping within my inner self spells trouble.
Intuition does not shout, it does not force, intuition is peaceful and many time illogical by the world's standards. Wanting to prove others wrong, or prove you are right, having the last word and the "I told you so's is not intuition speaking to you, that is plain ole ego tripping. Many of us say it is our gut speaking when in fact it is the ego screaming at you.
Looking within can be scary, because looking within with honesty exposes us to things we don't want to deal with, things we have denied and things we have ignored.
It makes us anxious that once we face them, call them out, look them directly in the eye that we have to take responsibility and do something about them.
I have learnt that doing something about it right away is not always necessary or even a requirement in moving forward, acknowledgement is a huge part of the process.
I have learnt that sometimes we limit ourselves when we refuse to look within, we dream too small.
When we face some of the things lurking around inside we get an opportunity for feedback. you cannot lie to yourself, your life will always show you where you are and where there is space for growth.
Can you be more patient, more kind, set more boundaries, be more responsible, dream a bigger dream, more forgiving, less angry, gossip less?
Whatever it is, a huge part of the process is looking courageously within and accepting that whatever is there is for your own growth and development.
