Sitting Quietly

When we find ourselves having a difficult time deciding what to do, it's time to sit quietly for a moment. It's not that the answers will come more easily, but we're giving ourselves time to settle down. Not knowing what to do is not a comfortable place to be. It's human nature for us to want to be in control of our life and to be able to make wise decisions that will directly impact our life. So when we're unable to make up our mind, it's not unusual to want to find someone who can tell us what to do. But this would be a mistake because no one really knows what is best for us but ourselves and even then we ourselves don't know how things are going turn out. To be caught in this pedicament is a life lesson in itself, do we have the faith to trust what our inner spirit is saying or are we making decisions based on our past fears. That's why it's so important to just sit quietly for a moment and let the anxiousness flow out of our body. It will be replaced with the understanding that no matter what we decide to do, everything will turn out the way it's suppose to. Today, don't make any rash decisions. Be open to the flow of the universe and the answers will come. You deserve to live a life you were meant to lead.
Being in the water, there is nothing to do but relax...

(Trying to answer a question that has no logical answer is one of the most difficult thing to do, especially if you're the only one that can make the decision. Questions like these, though few and far apart, make me anxious because no matter what I decide, someone will be hurt. Although there are no winners or losers in life, people do lose things. I'm putting all decisions aside for today and just sitting quietly. I think it's more about avoiding than  trusting that all will go well in the end.)
