Faith. Trust. It takes courage. We all want certainty to some degree. Know where we are heading. Know what our next step is. What to do to ‘solve’ our problem or improve the situation. But… sometimes we just don’t know. We don’t know what is best, what we want to do with our lives, what study to choose, what career to go for, whether this is the right partner, how to break through stuckness, how this ‘issue’ is going to get better, and so on. We can experience this is a massive problem. I have, and can still feel it at times. I just want to know!
I believe the real problem here is ‘the need to know’. The need to know for what’s next. The focus becomes so much on ‘the need to know’ that it distracts us from the process that will give us the answers we are searching for.
What if we let go of this need to know? What if we tell ourselves ‘this is exactly where I need to be right now’? In the ‘unknown’. And I just keep observing myself, how I feel and respond. I explore, and expose myself to the world around me. And stay aware. I stay close to me, and trust that the next thing will reveal itself. No change for the sake of change, just patience, faith and a commitment to the ‘right thing’ for you, and loving and living your own life.
