Thanks for this week’s tip. This was a great way for me to start the work week. Specifically reading “a deeper wisdom communicating with us by writing the answers to any question we could want answered in big bold letters at the bottom of the pool. In order for us to "read" the answer from outside the pool, the water needs to be relatively still and quiet. If there were people (thoughts) swimming around in the pool, we would have to wait for those swimmers to move on before we could clearly see.
Ironically, any effort we would make to dive into the pool ourselves to move those swimmers along would simply increase the turbulence in the pool and make it even harder to see what was written across the bottom. It would only be after we got out of the pool that the water (mind) would have a chance to return to calm and we would be able to clearly see the message written by our own guidance and wisdom.”
I feel Yes, Yes, Yes, reading the above. I have learned the benefits of a quiet mind – I can hear the next step to take through my inner ear. But if I get too wrapped up in dismissing unwanted thoughts I actually helping those thoughts stick around longer. However, if I acknowledge my truth within myself refraining from adding to the ‘muck & mire’ then I am able to return to mental clarity sooner without force (and sometimes the purpose for the mental detour is revealed).
Thanks Michael for the confirmation,
