Hi, I’ve been agonizing over making a decision for the past two years! I’ve been praying for “clarity” and to see the “truth” within myself but I’m still conflicted… Do you think that if I keep seeing “signs”, it’s the universe leading me towards the best path path? I know the answers should come from within but do you think these “signs” are really the answers that I already know inside?? THANKS!
Let me tell you a secret, you are ALWAYS on the right path. We keep looking for a direction and stressing about how to find the right path in life, the right career, the right action, the right major, the right philosophy on life but you aren’t going to get ANYWHERE unless you stop thinking and feel. You ARE the direction. You are always on the right path because you exist eternally within the NOW moment, right here, right now. there is no leading. there is just being. People make life so freaking complicated and we all do it because well it’s life and we’re made to make mistakes and stress about our own lives. However the problem is just this, it is not ever about where we are going, it’s how we get there. The answer lies in the journey not the destination. If you are alive today, you are on the right path right now.
i can’t tell you the answer because it’s within you. stop over analyzing the decision and looking for clarity because you ARE clarity. What happens with our mind is we keep searching and searching, looking for this place, trying to fill the void, trying to find the truth, searching and searching for who we want to be, how we want to get successful, how we want to make the moolah, how we want to get somewhere, we spend so much energy on HOW we’re supposed to get there but never enough time on the present moment of being. Who we are today, is how you achieve greatness. It doesn’t reside in tomorrow, you won’t find clarity next sunday. you find clarity today.
It’s part of our nature, we overthink, we over rationalize, we stress about the future to the point where it brings anxieties and fears, we ’re so worried about getting this done and that done, well i have to go the bank and i have to finish this ten page paper, but i’m also in the middle of traffic right now so i should be focusing on driving…we ALL do it.
This is one thing i learned in yoga that really spoke to me. When we go to yoga, you get yelled at if your eyes are open. It’s silly i know but think about it. When you have your eyes open to everything, your ego goes on full blast it says all sorts of nonsense, ‘gosh i’m not pretty as her, i can’t believe he’s wearing that, well i need to get to the bank before five, i bet i can do that pose better than her, etc. etc. then what happens?
You. lose. FOCUS.
you mess up, you’re not even thinking of the movement or pose anymore because your mind is so clouded in thought. the same thing happens in life all the time.
True clarity comes from not thinking.
When you close your eyes, everything goes away, you go inside yourself. Inside the moment of now. you realize that i don’t need to be looking at others because it isn’t my path, it isn’t my business, my truth resides INSIDE. inside the stillness.
Truth and peace comes from the silence. not the overthinking, not the agonizing decisions.
You are always on the right path. because you’re here. right now. being.
These signs are just metaphorical reminders that you are a multidimensional being. They’re helping you remember who you are and that everything happens for a reason.
So when you read this message, i want you to just stop for a moment and clear your thoughts. Focus on your breathing and close your eyes. That is where you will find clarity…
I also highly suggest The power of the Now by Eckhart Tolle, it’s an excellent book on learning to stay present and keeping a stillmind.
sorry this was long…
much love <3
