TRUST YOUR GUT
Ever hear anyone say – I should have never trusted my Gut?
Our intuition speaks to us – sometimes it even screams at us.
It provides us our WISE COUNSEL and yet we so often squash it and ignore it.
I must emphasise that WISE COUNSEL does require that we are well informed, have considered the consequences, considered options from a variety of sources and have remained open to finding the truth and evaluating all in relation to our FIVE CORE BELIEFS.
The Beliefs that we never ignore – for these are what our whole being and Purpose in life are based. Examples of these Core Beliefs are – Honesty, Excellence, Integrity, Loyalty, Influence, Inspiration, Faith and so on.
On reflection most of the biggest mistakes we have each made have probably been when we haven’t listened properly to our GUT.
But we have allowed the ignoble values – ego, peer pressure, greed, impatience, pride – to jump in the way
When our ego goggles are eventually removed – we know what we should have done.
The GUT is the wise part of us – the one most closely linked to our Spiritual Element (or whatever God channel you subscribe to).
All the other parts – especially the mind and our Monkey brain – will fight it. Our subconscious does not like being moved out of its comfortable, survival state.
In the end you know best. Trust yourself and then do as you are told by YOU.
WISE COUNSEL AND LISTENING TO OUR GUT HELPS US TO HAVE NO REGRETS in our life’s Journey
At end of life many people can list a long line of regrets: I wish I had done; I wish I could have seen; I wish I would have moved to another State, I wish I had taken that trip, I wish I had spent more time with family and friends.
If you could come back and live another life – who would you wish to come back as? Yourself and the life you have led (with some improvements hopefully) or would you wish to come back as someone else?
Your biggest regret is to wish to come back as the person you could have been – but was too lazy to become that person during YOUR one life time.
That would have meant over coming resistance, procrastination, have more courage and less fear, more confidence, more planning, more reading, more listening TO OTHERS, and listening to your GUT.
This is your life – right NOW – choose to live it with NO REGRETS and become WHO YOU WERE BORN TO BE.
Take more RISKS – remember a few blogs ago (LINK) – Life is Risky but you won’t get out alive either way. JR
Would allow yourself to fail more, to love more, to laugh more, to simplify your life, to use rest and silence wisely?
So why not become and continue to become the person you were meant to be in your present life – RIGHT NOW!
The decisions are made in the NOW – the PAST is gone and the FUTURE may never be.
Ask the question for each decision – Will I Regret trying or not trying?
Start with the simple things – smile at people, visit family, old age homes, be kind and patient more often. Take a walk in Silence. Dinner with family with NO TECHNOLOGY around
Make your NO REGRETS LIST and spend your time on things you will never regret and spend NO TIME on the things you will regret.
SHOW MORE GRATITUDE – IT CONNECTS YOUR SOUL, YOUR SPIRITUAL ELEMENT, YOUR GUT
Many, many people have helped you on your life journey and to achieve all you have.
Appreciate them, acknowledge how they have helped you
Who has helped support you, mentor you,
Who does the backup work that helps you achieve what you do or become who you are at present?
All community people – doctors, nurses, ferries, drivers, tech people, council. Trades.
GRATITUDE enhances the relationships of all – because your smile, your thank you, your kindness, gets played forward 100s of times over – like a pebble forming ripples in a pond.
GRATITUDE IS THE MOST MAGICAL FORCE OF ALL – but undervalued, underappreciated and under done.
GRATITUDE MAKES IT EASY TO PAY IT FORWARD
We are each here to contribute, to give, to serve, to help, to build, to improve
To be a Net Positive (a Hero) and not a NET Negative (a Victim)
Our life is better when we make others’ lives better.
Whatever blessings, talents, skills you have been endowered with – were given to be used for the betterment of others and the community – to heal, to advance, to comfort, to encourage.
So Play them Forward – NEVER ONLY CONSUME. Contribute back WHAT you have been given and everything you have gained
Multiply YOUR BLESSINGS, GIFTS AND ACHIEVEMENTS – by paying them forward.
WE ARE ALL ONE
Have you noticed that our world is becoming more divided, more violent, more unforgiving, more judgmental? More tribal?
WHY – we are all human beings and have entered this world the same way. Granted in different circumstances.
However, the more affluent or comfortable, or safe we become – the less of these values we display. In most countries that are poor and have very bad living conditions – the most smiles are seen.
The future of our planet and the human race will likely come down to (no not solving Climate Change, or Racism, or COVID) – it will come down to how well we get along with each other – in our home, street, suburb, city, State, country.
It will come down to how well have we LOVED (Link Essence of LOVE)
We are all trying to make it from day to day with its challenges, messiness, ups and downs. All of us.
We are all part of the human race. Join – or we may well all be out of the Race altogether.
LIVE A LIFE WITH NO REGRETS BY LISTENING TO YOUR GUT
