Walking the Spiritual Path Day 38

Preconceived notions are like prison bars on life.   Anonymous

Preconceived notions are dangerous things.  There is such comforting appeal in believing that I know how things are going to turn out.  It eliminates what my limited thinking believes is unpredictable and therefore scary and bad.  But in truth, preconceived notions block my soul’s ability guide me to what belongs in my life.  It’s as if I took the infinite possibilities available to my soul, crumpled it up and threw it in the garbage can and then handed my soul a very limited menu and said “here, pick from this.”  Yet what she intended for me isn’t on that menu.

While I like to believe that I come to my higher mind completely open and receptive to her guidance, in truth I don’t.  I limit her choices to what I know.  I demand that my soul work through my ideas of how my life should unfold.  These preconceived notions are crippling in weight.  The expectations built into them are so heavy that I don’t do anything at all.  My programming tells me its too hard, I don’t know how, and  the end result won’t be good enough.   It’s easier to leave it alone and move onto something else, something distracting and empty.  In this way, my programming makes sure that I never begin down the road that belongs to my higher mind.

The key is come to my higher mind with a blank slate and take only the action my soul is guiding.  I can only do this when I am manifesting my soul.  This isn’t complicated or hard or scary.  That is my programming that resists my soul at every step.  I need to stop being complicit.

Affirmation:  Today I seek my higher mind’s guidance with a welcoming and empty mind.
