The plight of the seeker - Understanding
If you are a self proclaimed "seeker" you know you have journeyed deep into topics only to find out you have more to learn. You might even recognize that need to know as something that almost has a mind of its own and is causing you to look all over for information. It is as if we think we will find "the answer" and be done seeking.
We drive ourselves nuts trying to figure things out and become experts on material. The funny part is the more we know, the more we create to know. There is never an end game in this process. We know this, yet we still do this to ourselves!
Like with anything, we can get imbalanced with our seeking. When we are in balance, we are seeking with ease. Eager to know, eager to understand. We peel back the layers in curiosity and fun. When we get out of balance we drive ourselves nuts, knowing and understanding and figuring out.
Below is a little clip of me talking to a previous coaching club about this drive.
The Age of Perception
We have been heavily influenced by the Information Age and been given access to knowledge unheard of in previous times. But now we are moving into the Age of Perception, where we have to hone our skills on what to spend energy on and how. And the idea of "fake news" is making us need to be wiser than ever about what we act on and perceive to be true.
It is important to be self-reflective in what you are engaging with as you become more and more powerful with your thoughts and understanding. What are you trying to "understand" better? What information are you trying to analyze, pick a part, think through? Are you in balance with it? Are you following your passion or a mind that wants to control?
You are much more powerful as a creator and an influencer when your energy is fun and happy. We get in the habit of doing and understanding things by studying them is no different. Can you let go of it a little bit. Let it show itself to you rather than you figuring it all out. If you can't let it go, explore why. What is it that you are telling yourself will happen if you don't "know" this or that? What are you telling yourself will happen when you do "know it"?
Relax all that you need to know is right in front of you. You are much better at being in touch with that truth if you calm yourself down and have a little fun in the process of unfolding life and the mysteries within it.
