We give words so much power in our lives.
Why is it that we do this? For each person the words can mean different things so, why do we give words so much weight?
I saw a quote on facebook or instagram, I can’t remember. But, it read “Ego says: Once everything falls into place, I will find peace. Spirit says: Find peace and everything falls into place.” My mind argued with this quote. I mean, I do believe our Ego says what was stated but, I did not buy into the Spirit statement. From my story or my own reality, whatever you want to call it, Spirit says “Be peace; Everything is already in place.” Is this a statement I bought into or is it a belief? It definitely popped into my mind as I read the quote.
I proceeded to read the comments following this quote and seeing many people in agreement with the quote as originally stated. The question I asked myself was “Why did so many buy into that quote?” “What made them resonate?”
I still don’t understand. But, my thoughts on why so many resonated was that maybe it’s because humans are all seekers and namely, seekers of destination and outcome. Two words that make no sense to me if attributed to most areas of life. Destination is for travel and outcome is for math equations. Otherwise, there is no real knowing when it comes to either word.
If I read that quote 5 or 6 years ago, I have to admit, I would have bought into it. But, I was still giving destination and outcome a lot of power in my life. I grew into my own belief of “Be Peace; Everything is already in place.” I feel like if we need to find something, then we have lost something or we lack in something. I also feel that, the only reason we need things to “fall into place” is because we relate it to a story of the past or we are visualizing an outcome in the future. To me, neither exists.
What if we started questioning everything instead of searching for everything? Read a quote and ask “what does this quote really mean to me? Is there a possibility of another perspective?”. Regardless, of what I believe now I do keep my mind open to the idea of perspective. Using the quote stated as an example of perspective change, 5 or 6 years ago, I believed it. Today, it has a different meaning to me. Just knowing that, creates the space of possibilities and in that space of possibilities “everything, nothing and something exists at exactly the same time”. That’s a quote I created from my own evolution of my story and beliefs.
With that being said, if you’ve read all that and your brain hurts, I apologize. hahaha. Namaste.
