The power of thought and the mind.
‘You think, therefore you are!”
“You only accept the amount of love you think you deserve.’
“It is the nature of thought to find its way into action.
“Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
It is true that most of our limitations are imposed by our own self, whether it be for love, wealth, a job, relationships etc. At the same time, doesn’t someone who think that they are ‘entitled’ or ‘deserve’ this or that, not coming from a place of ego?
Being self-confident and assertive is a good thing, but can one be too self-confident and too assertive, where a positive quality becomes a negative one?
When someone says: ‘I knew that (bad thing) was going to happen!” Did this person invite the bad thing to happen by focusing on that bad thing instead of the postive outcome? Or does intuition have any place in the equation?
Is intuition a form of thought? A crossroads where thought and feeling intersect?
Not listening ‘to your gut’, results in a cosmic ‘smack on the head’, a wakeup call to a lesson that needs to be learned and is being ignored.
Is this cosmic hand the hand of karma playing its role in our conscious evolution? Of which our perception is that of intuition? Or does intuition exist as a separate concept in and of itself?
I always say that it was intuition that connected me to my Yoga family and cemented my life journey towards one of conscious evolution.
How a bank robbery (yes this is true), actors playing on a cosmic stage for me, was the trigger I needed, to eventually bring me to India and introduce me to Yoga and Gurukula living.
One morning I woke up with the feeling that I should not bring my purse with me to the bank, which logically made no sense at all. But since I knew my bank account nunber by heart and all I wanted to do was deposit a cheque, I left my house that morning with a cheque in one pocket and my bus pass in the other. I did not know that there was going to be a robbery at the bank, at the exact moment I was to be there, but somehow my gut knew.
Since then, my gut and I have become very good friends.
