Sometimes, as they say, we make plans and the Gods laugh. We wonder, “why are they laughing?” We get frustrated, seeing so many possible roads before us and not having a clue which is the “right” one.
There’s nothing funny about needing to find a direction in life, to figure out what we really want and need, what makes sense in our particular universe. Mostly, we will employ our egos to figure out what feels good or seems right. Other times, we will try to copy a path walked by others who we think are successful.
If the Gods are laughing, it’s at the folly of our thinking that we actually have so much control over our destinies. We do – to an extent. But so often we try to decide what we want to do, instead of finding what it is that is actually calling out to us. When we discover that inner voice, we begin to have a feeling of something greater than ourselves sending us signals.
They may not be clear, may not make sense, and it may not lead to a lifelong profession. But if we follow that voice, and do the work of it, that trail will always lead us somewhere usually unexpected and in alignment with the true needs of our soul’s journey.
Confusion – you know, that noise machine that moves in like a fog and mingles together thoughts and feelings until there is nothing identifiable left to choose from?
It’s like torture to get stuck in it. Everything seems possible, but nothing seems definite or clear. We try to make a decision from that place, and we get even more lost in the “what if’s” only to find the ground shifting constantly below our feet. Confusion is the first line of defense that our patterns set up to keep us a prisoner and running on the mouse wheel of the status quo.
It’s a protective mechanism set in place by fear usually. Coming through its gauntlet of doubt, indecision, vacillation and all the rest leads us to clarity and the realization that the choices themselves aren’t as important as just making one.
