I have learned over the past many years that life has its own logic. I’ve also learned that life moves on its merry way unfettered by man’s logic. And most importantly, I’ve learned that I have to learn life’s logic if I intend to float gently down the stream of life.
Man is not listening to life’s logic when he takes some erroneous notion (like the world is flat or the sun rotates around the earth), and turns it into his so-called ‘logical belief’. All so-called ‘logical beliefs’ (logical to man but not to life), eventually cause problems. I used to believe that cutting corners was a shortcut to success. I cannot begin to tell you how many problems this illogical belief caused me. Life is meant to be a joyous adventure. “It is either a joyous adventure or nothing,” said Helen Keller. She was a wise woman. In spite of the fact that life is meant to be a joyous adventure, life does not intend to give you all of its logic at once. After all, if life did that – there’d be no adventure!
Part of the wonderful surprise of life is journeying into the unknown. There would be no ‘unknown’ if everything made logical sense right from the start – right? If there is no unknown, there are no surprises … what kind of life is that? What if the cave man simply walked out of the cave with all of the logic and common sense he needed to invent machinery that gave him gas fired heating systems and electrically charged air conditioners and flat screen televisions, and the means to install dishwashers in his cave? It would all have happened in the first 100 years. What about the sense of triumphant victory that comes with years and years of hard work trying to simply figure out how to invent the wheel or work with fire?
The beautiful ‘fragrance of life’ that children smell, is their awareness of the incredible amount of things going on around them that make no logical sense to them. Children love going into the unchartered sea of life, don’t they. We’re all still children when it comes to making sense of all that life includes.
In the beginning, there is no logic to any of it. This is what makes the journey an exciting mystery. The intelligent person asks many questions, and listens for answers that work in life. The unintelligent person asks few questions, and settles for answers that he can lazily convert into beliefs. At one time, there were tribes that sacrificed virgins in order to satisfy the Volcano God. How’d that ‘illogical belief’ work out?
What illogical beliefs are you clinging to? In what domains of your life are you suffering because you refuse to let go of erroneous notions that you consider logical and true? Here is a sample of a notion that I had to let go of: I’d read books that convinced me that I could simply ‘think something into manifestation’? Do you believe this notion is logical and true? Many folks do. For example, how many folks spend hours on their computer building a virtual reality out of wishes and dreams; however, they never get out of the house and act on them, they never muster up the courage to DO what they have to do to make their dreams come true?
I’ve met many folks that believe ‘thinking is all it takes to succeed’. I still meet them; they’ve lost confidence in themselves because they believe it’s them that’s flawed, not the belief. These folks cling to the erroneous belief that The Law of Attraction will fulfill on their dreams if they wish and hope long and hard enough.
The folks that insist that The Law of Attraction should go into action without them taking personal action, no longer have the courage to travel into the unknown; they no longer dare go out into the world and DO what it takes to help The Law of Attraction fulfill on their dreams. They cling to an illogical string of beliefs that say, “What I hold in my mind will come true in my life”. Well, that just ain’t so, otherwise everyone would be millionaires, or live in mansions, or travel around the world to exotic ports, or discover the solution to cancer, or come up with a system to feed all of the hungry children in the world.
Do you feel upset in any way by this post? If you do, then there’s something in the post that is challenging one or more of yours beliefs. Dig deep. What might that be?
Self-rescue from illogical beliefs requires energy. You save valuable energy by not clinging to notions that are not part of life’s logic.
I’ve learned, over many years, the reason old lingering dreams and yearnings have not manifested in my life. It’s because of erroneous notions that I’d converted into hardened beliefs, and insisted were logical and true.
There was a time when I believed, “I cannot design my earthly destiny; I am not smart enough, I was born on the wrong side of the tracks, and I don’t deserve to do so.” I had to apply Real Knowledge to this ‘crisis thinking’ to break it. Real Knowledge is light … and light offers life’s logic … and life’s logic is what one needs to live the life one dreams of experiencing.
What say you to this?
What might you add?
What illogical belief might you once have been clinging to?
Have no doubts – life’s logic is always healing medicine!
