Trusting your first instinct
How often do you go with your initial gut feeling?
The “right” decision (your truth) is not necessarily the one that makes you feel the most comfortable. In fact, often the decisions that point to my truth make me downright anxious or reluctant.
Truth doesn’t take a whole lot of research, or the collecting of opinions from our peers and mentors. Good mentors won’t give us their opinions anyway- they help guide us to where we need to go to find our truth. Truth doesn’t require listing out the Pros & Cons. It doesn’t require considering how others might feel about it. The truth is: Truth is Spontaneous. It knows immediately that someone is wrong for us. It knows immediately that that opportunity is the right one for us. The back and forth that follows, many times, is our ego making justification to stay where we are most comfortable.
Caveat: to access Truth requires our ability to recognize it. And to distinguish it from Fear.
This is why we practice the Yoga of Awareness. Also known as Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan). It takes you there fast.
