    Knowing that what I know (knowledge-facts/figures) is so very limited. There’s an infinite universal consciousness that is tapped by going within, inward. Using intuition and meditation to deepen my understanding. Testing knowledge intuitively based on whether it resonates as truth.

    By stopping seeking, stopping trying to find the answer. And getting out of the way.

    I am just trying to establish a routine of reading and reflection, which will help me progress spirtually.

    Never stop learning
    Never stop asking questions
    Never stop exploring other angles or possibilities
    Never think you know it all
    Listen, even when you disagree

    The most important way needed is to open my heart. Understanding being informed by love. So a good way to continue would be to ask myself “what would love do” ? and allow its guidance. The problem for me in such situations where this would be essentially required is to let go of fear and to follow this inner light with hope and faith. It will make all the difference. May it be, so that His light guides.

      This is really nice Ose! Thank You.
      I have read a quote before with the word Christ (love) instead:
      “what would Christ do” ?

        Thank you, dear MEG! Good question. Most probably, he did, don´t you think so? I try my best to learn from him, although often enough, failing. An what about you?

          Yes, I think so. He most probably did! After all, even in our own brokenness (“ failings “) we learn about hope, faith, courage, strength and gratitude. We become more compassionate to continue our path with greater understanding towards Loving more fully. Blessings, dear Ose. ❤️

    I believe understanding stems from tranquility. So it is by cultivating tranquility that I intend to cultivate greater understanding.

    I can listen more, talk less… stay and be curious when my impulse is to judge and blame… choose to pause, stay silent, be with what is and reflect, before moving prematurely into reaction or action. I can stay open to conversations on challenging subjects without avoiding them or walking quickly away – while staying rooted in strong spiritual practices, community and values.

    By paying attention and doing my best to avoid distractions. Those distractions are what do me in…..

    I think I will substitute the word, “understanding” for “awareness”. This removes a limitation and enables openness.

      Behold, a human being at last! You’re aware, you’re alive. What do you do with a person like that?

      And the truth will set you free.

    Staying open and accepting.
    Appreciating & staying in gratitude for all.
    Remaining quiet more than speaking.
    Meditate, Pray, listen to my Soul.

    Recognise that social media buys and sells our anger and outrage as a commodity. The more we shout and scream at each other, the more money they make. Less certainty, more inquiry. Try to recognise my biases and capacity for self deception. Breathe and try and find balance

    This is a difficult time of strong delusions, big lies and polarized views, but there’s great comfort in staying on a positive course, looking inward for the truth and remaining grounded.

    Knowledge is available to me through reading and studying but knowing comes with experience. My job is willingness. We often here the quote from the Psalms: “Be still and know that I am God.” I prefer the translation that says, “Desist and know that I am God.” Desist instead of Resist. Evolve instead of Revolve. Once I realized this, I understood that life is process and even when the ups and downs have me shaking in my boots, I don’t want to miss the show! There is a song called “Holy Darkness” sung by John Michael Talbot and you can listen to it on You Tube. A few years ago I wrote my own verse which I share below:

    Holy darkness, Wintery night
    Your mystery beckons to fill us with insight
    If we embrace you, with hearts wide open
    We BECOME your holy light.

    Be open-hearted {while} remembering that does not mean I allow myself to be used as a doormat,
    be open-minded {while} trailblazing my path (or) sticking to the one I’m on…..being true to myself- not jumping on other people’s paths,
    continue working on transforming my insecurities into positive attributes,
    stop wasting my time trying to prove myself [or] keep trying to explain myself to those…..that do not want to take the time to get to know the real me
    {and}
    remember to enjoy the everyday, simple pleasures of life {smile}.
