Acting against better judgment

 

Have you ever been in a situation where you knew you were in the wrong place, but you stayed anyway?
Where you knew you were with the wrong people, but you didn’t leave?
Where you even were sleeping with the wrong person, while you knew it?

Have you ever been in a situation where you chose to do the wrong thing?
That thing that would make you or other people unhappy
that thing that would put you or other people in danger
that thing that would bore you to death
that thing that would force you to lie
but you did it anyway?

I have.

It is called: acting against better judgment.
You could also call it counter intuitive
Or not listening to your soul
Or not listening to your true self.

Have you ever felt this?
I don’t think there’s any feeling worse than that, for a human being.

Of course, from an eagle perspective, if you zoom out until the level of Shiva and Shakti, you could say there are no mistakes.
On that divine level, this is true.
Because every wrong choice you make, every despicable act, every excruciating moment, can be a lesson.
Everything that happens in your life can be a lesson.
And yes, when you learn from a wrong choice not to make that choice again, you might say it has meaning.

However, don’t use this as a justification.
Don’t use it to postpone, to not change.
Don’t use it to justify perpetuating a situation or a relationship in which you know you are not where you are supposed to be.

This place might not belong to you.
These people might not belong to you.
You might not be with the right partner.
You might not have the right job.
If this is so, you will know.
You will feel it in your gut, as you read these words.
Right here, right now.

Make it important to do the right thing.
Don’t say you’ll get another chance, in the next life.
Don’t say you’ll do it later.
Don’t say it’s all the same anyway.
Don’t say it’s all meaningful, because it’s not. Not on the human scale. Not on this level.

There’s a huge difference between being where you belong and not being where you belong.
There’s a huge difference between being with soulmates, with family, with like minded people, or being with people who are actually not on the same wavelength, or not from the same soul family, or who have totally different values and belief systems.

There are people who can bring you down. There are people who can lift you up.
There are people who can inspire you. There are people who can numb you.
It’s not the same. It’s vastly different.

Be precise. Be honest. Be courageous.
Your life matters.
You matter.
Your choices matter.

Every choice you make either brings you closer to freedom, or takes you further away from freedom.
Every choice you make either brings you closer to happiness, or leads you away from happiness.
Makes you stronger, or makes you weaker.

Make it important.
Make your strength, your health, your happiness important.
You matter.
You really do.
Because your choices will eventually set the direction for the whole of humanity.

Where do you want to go?
Where do you want your children to go?
Where do you want humanity to be in seven generations?

Make it important.
Because it is.
Every step counts.
Every thought counts.

You make the difference.
