Years ago I was taught to always live in the question. In present time it is extremely essential for my healing on my spiritual path. What does that mean? It means that no matter what you hear, read, watch, there is a good chance that there is something else really going on. Don’t blindly accept it. Research it.
In this world of divide and conquer, so many just simply believe what what is in front of them. Watch the variety of crime shows and the thought that goes through the mind, it is just a TV show. No, it is going on all around you. But because on the news they said it happen, it happens. Or, I shouldn’t believe that it is conspiracy. But maybe, it is far fetched. But just maybe there is bit of truth to it. This does not only go for political. It is for spiritual as well.
There are so many people misleading others. At this point in my life, I ran into quite a few, and didn’t leave the lot of them until I got my behind burned. This was all in the line of seeking a spiritual mentor.
Telling someone that they should not study with another side, or mention what they learned from another source or group, Is a big red flag. This just happened to me in one group that I seemed to like. People were absolutely lovely. Then at some point, I was trying to understand something, by mentioning something I learned in another philosophy. They tried to squash me down like a bug. I backed out. I was told you have to play with what they are doing. I said no. I live in the question and If I can’t have free will. It is not for me.
What ever you are downloading into your brain, from what ever source. Always take a minute and ask your higher self is this good for you. Your higher self has you in it’s best interest.
Because of different pathways I took through out my life, I have chosen to take a balanced approached. I learned from a professor years back, that anything in fanaticism is brain dead. That is a value I hold close. Maybe sometimes you have to dive in deep to understand. It is important to pull back the reins to a balance stance. Choose balance, at this moment wisely. Because what you are studying isn’t always a bad choice. Sometimes it is the organization. Walk with your eyes wide open.
