‘The body always leads us home . . . if we can simply learn to trust the sensation within, and stay with it long enough for it to trigger appropriate action, movement, insight, or feeling…’
We live our lives – searching for happiness. Taking de-tours, running in circles, finding ourselves over and over again standing clueless on tiny and major crossroads. Hoping for guidance. For somebody to show us the right path, to share with us the universal recipe for a content and fulfilling life.
We look for answers: Watching talk-shows, as happiness formulas proven by masses must have some truth to them. Reading biographies of spiritual monks who spend their days in peaceful meditation, because their path is unique. We ask advice from our best friends trusting that they know us, and can therefore relate. And random strangers, because we have no connection, so their suggestions are likely to be so much more objective…
WE LOOK FOR ANSWERS… IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES!
Yes – we are here to explore, to widen our horizons, expand our minds. And yes – watching others to reach a state of happiness is inspiring. But the truth is, each of us is far too unique as that copying somebody else’s life concept could ever work.
Which does not mean that we are condemned to be groping in the dark for the rest of our days?. All we have to do is shift our focus from the outside inwards, and begin to listen to this little voice deep inside. Dismissed as unreasonable, and ignored for many years, it may be hard to detect at first. And with our lives being ruled by logic, and measurable facts, the even greater obstacle are our thoughts: judgmental, deriding, constantly interfering
But if we manage to silence our mind, and learn to listen without censoring our feelings, we get access to the most powerful tool – our intuition. The ‘sixth sense’, the deep-in-the-pit-of-your-stomach sensation that tells you that what you are about to do is just RIGHT. Regardless of the experience others make, despite the long list of ‘cons’ your mind immediately delivers…
Intuition may not follow rational patterns, and pass the test of logical argument. And yet – following this little voice, relying on the wisdom you carry inside yourself, will lead you towards what you truly want in life! Allowing you to experience this effortless flow, and enjoy each step of the journey.
You may wonder whether you are too young or too old to bring a baby into this world. It may seem crazy to give up a well-paid corporate job to open your own small business. Your passion for African dance may not be as fashionable as yoga. And none of that matters! Follow your intuition, listen to your heart’s desire, and there is no way you can go wrong!
