Doubt embeds itself in you like a seed.
If nourished, it grows, if ignored and left unattended it withers away and dies.
Unlike fear, doubt is about hesitation, not preservation.
More about a lack of faith, rather than a lack of courage
Doubt is about not trusting
Not listening to that inner voice when it calls on you
Consigning it to nothing more than a figment of your imagination
Something removed from reality.
There are levels of knowing,
The knowing of the mind – which is analytical, reliant on often-flawed reason alone
Then there is a deeper knowing – the knowing of the spirit
This is not a feeling, but a deep sense
Not an instinct, but a deep intuition
Not an impulse, but the highest form of reason.
It’s your whole being calling on you to act
Shouting at you
Pulling you in a very definitive direction
The only thing you have to do at this point is either choose to ignore it or choose to go with it
To doubt or to trust,
The opportunity to liberate yourself and open the flood gates to new possibilities
Setting you onto a new course
Giving full life a real chance and setting yourself onto the path that was laid out for you since the beginning of creation.
This deep knowing can be cultivated
You can learn to trust
You can learn to recognise that calling when it dawns upon you
But it requires you to first silence the noise
To tune in
And then, at some point, to be courageous and have that conviction to take that leap of faith.
