Do you question what is promoted? Do you investigate? Research? Trial it?
Just because it is written, spoken, or often repeated, doesn’t mean that it is the truth, or the truth for you.
Many years ago, I was reading a book that dispelled some of my own beliefs. I foolishly thought that all this time I had believed x, y & z, and now this famed and admired person was telling me otherwise. It never crossed my mind to question the words of someone so respected.
It wasnt until I was chatting with my very wise friend Bec, about what I had discovered, when she asked the simplest of questions; “Who’s to say that those words are true? Just because it’s in a book doesn’t make it your truth”.
It seems so gullible now in hindsight, but back then I didn’t really question authority, I just went with the flow. Gosh! Where on earth would I now be if I had continued in that flow? My ‘evolution’ and development is a result of those wise questioning words. That conversation has remained with me, and it must have been at least 15 years ago.
So where are you in regard to this? Do you blindly follow or do you investigate? Remember, it’s through inquiry and research that we learn what works best for us, or what is truth for us.
Be careful when you blindly follow the masses. Sometimes the ‘M’ is silent.
Dance to your own lovely tune my friends. 🎶
