If you’ve ever felt foolish for “getting it” long after others have, please don’t beat yourself up about it. We can’t hear or understand some things until our hearts, minds, gut, and experiences all lineup just right. This “ah-ha” discovering thing can and will happen throughout your life. Forget the guilt of “I should have known that”.
When did the shame of not knowing something replace the joy of suddenly understanding? I love sharing my experiences but seriously regret any impression that I’m an authority. What you feel, experience, or know… cannot be exactly the same for anyone. We each are similar while totally unique. At least that’s how I see it from here.
Does wisdom always increase with age? From my experience, folks can get old without a lick of sense. Or youngsters can be old souls because they understand things that some of us haven’t figured out yet.
If we ignore or silence our precious treasure: intuition— we run the risk of relying on the experts to our detriment. I am in love with learning from others. When I do not respect my intuition, inner voice, Universe, Spirit (or whatever you choose to call it.)… things just don’t work well. It’s like chewing a mouthful of delicious food, but not being able to swallow or absorb the nutrition.
The self-deprecation dialogue is “I don’t know. I’m just me.” Why not tell yourself, “I’m a living intelligent being that can use knowledge and intuition and imagination to make my way to custom fit to my journey on this planet”?
STORY: This morning I spent a half hour on a drawing. When finished, I propped it up to be vertical to the camera. When I looked at the photo I was disappointed. It didn’t look like what I thought I drew. AH HA: I used a 45% angled drawing board. When I leaned the picture back to the same angle… it looked right! Did I explain that well enough?
Enjoy learning ya’ll.
