The sun sets on another day…
Tonight as I was taking pictures a strange car pulled up. For a moment I wondered what was going on, I put the key in the lock and turned the key and realized my intuition was wrong. Sometimes we just don’t see things for what they are, but I watched the man fish and catch a pretty big bass, the the sun set and I was gone.
I have been writing about a list posted by a friend, and tonight’s message is fitting: “Question everything, except your own intuition.”
Tonight I proved this was a fallacy. The actual statement should be revised to “It is your right to question everything.” There are no special rules, and no special guidance, just that everything is not always as it seems. We are often misguided by our intuition by the things we want to see, and sometimes don’t pay enough attention to as we glide through this world. Sometimes we even set aside those things right in front of our eyes, and in doing so, put ourselves at risk.
The world is full of examples right now. From marriage to people in power, we have to question what is going on all around us. If you do not question the news right now, well, can I sell you some swampland? There are so many things on the internet as well that are less than truthful, and we need to honestly know our direction as we move forward, and find a safe place to confirm the truth.
I don’t have all the answers there. I have trusted people I should not have trusted, and shunned people I should have trusted based upon my intuition. I have had my heart wrenched from my chest when I thought I could trust someone, and I have been deceived by friends and enemies alike. I have had friends lie over and over about meaningless things when I saw them as, well, friends, and found out that what was said to me was not what was being said to others, well, by lots of people. I am sure everyone has stories like this and more. We all know that sometimes the truth is out there but you really have to dig for it! As I walk through this life I have found that “trust but verify” has to be more than a simple statement. It has to be a way of life. So in that vein I do question everything.
So as the sun sets on another day, the world is a great place, but it can be deceiving to, question everything not to be cynical, but to be sure. Remember that intuition acts upon what is sees, so question it from time to time, and make sure you have a happy day, every day, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and question it…
