When I ask, “Do I want to go here or do this or that?” if the answer is not a resounding 100% YES then the answer is NO.
If the answer is “I don’t know or maybe” then as The Beatles say, “There will be an answer, let it be.”
Don’t try to force a YES.
A YES is a choiceless choice.
It arises from your core and from the certainty of your Soul.
If it doesn’t come from that place then your YES is not flowing from a pure and authentic place and it’s best to wait until you get a full-on YES.
As Lao-Tsu said:
Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment,
but not seeking, not expecting,
is present, and can welcome all things.
If you need clarity about a certain issue in life but are uncertain, then wait. Leave it alone. Allow things to sort themselves out. If you stir up a muddy glass of water, it will only get more muddled.
When you pause, get still and wait, a clear YES or NO will indeed arise in perfect time and then you can take right action rooted in the undeniable clear internal guidance of your Spirit’s wisdom.
