1. direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process
a. an immediate cognition of an object not inferred or determined by a previous cognition of the same object
b. any object or truth so discerned
c. pure, untaught, noninferential knowledge
3. a fact, truth the quality or ability of having such direct perception or keen, quick insight
Trusting is hard because of two reasons:
a. You can be wrong
b. You can get hurt
I have experienced both. This, for a long time, resulted in my trying to avoid risk, taking chances, and ignoring the gnawing tug from within. And as I’m learning with each passing day, the attempt to avoid being wrong and getting hurt, only caused more of both.
Oh yah, all that diving and dodging for what?
Here I am at another crossroad and I think I could be right about this next step. But freaking out as I decide whether or not to cross the line. Forever we’re ingrained and induced with fear to stay within the lines. So much so that we SEE anything outside them as a misstep.
And what if I am wrong? What happens then? Do I evaporate into dust, like a vampire exposed to light? Nope. Does everyone who supports and loves me suddenly walk away? Nope. Does the world end? Nope. Then why such fright involved in taking the next step?
Not everything is going to result in perfection.
I will be ALL right even when things go wrong.
Best to have no regrets on the “dids” than a gut load of them on the “did not’s”.
Maybe I wasn’t always where I wanted to be, but I can now SEE I am exactly where I need to be. Must be my intuition talking again. Better sit up and take a listen.
