Making decisions solely with this wildly imaginative story making mind, that has proven itself over and over again to be quite adept at making up all manner of irrational sh*t, is not a satisfying way to navigate life.
This is the same mind that once believed that I had to be perfect to be worthy of love.
This is the same mind that once believed that I could find love that would be free of heartbreak.
This is the same mind that once believed that if I made all the right choices, I could live a life free of difficulty.
Basically I no longer rely on my thoughts and beliefs outright. They are secondary, at best, to guide me in my “knowing” of life.
The mind is a great tool for imagining and creating all manner of things. It is not the best tool for deciphering the truth of things.
A more reliable way of navigating my life choices is to open my awareness to the entirety of being – spirit, heart, intuition, body intelligence, stillness, higher consciousness and my connection to unified and ancient wisdom.
The mind that claims to be the sole provider of wisdom is not to be trusted.
