Do you have this experience in your life? Two conflicting thoughts come to you and you don’t know which one is the right one that you should listen to.
And when you try to analysis both thought in order to decide which one should listen to, it makes you more confuse and makes you more indecisive. You become suffering by your thoughts now before any decision is made.
This inner conflict is very common in human beings mind.
Know Your Intuition
Isn’t good to know your intuition so that you don’t have to suffer this inner conflict in your mind? How do you know the voice of intuition?
Our mind like to run thought about the past and future. The information data it has is limited by its past experience and judgment and imagination. Therefore, your decision that is being made out from your thought is never the best decision.
However, we usually like to made decision from our thought because our mind love to live in the knowing than the unknown because it makes the mind feel comfortable.
Therefore, we always like to stay in our comfort zone as long as we live with our mind.
But do you know that intuition actually come from the unknown? Therefore, if you keep clicking on to do things that you know only, it’s very difficult to receive that intuition.
If you really want to know your intuition, you have to let go of your mind.
How To Free Yourself From Inner Conflict
To begin, you have to be aware of your thoughts. By discovering awareness can free us from inner conflict. You have to be aware they are just thoughts, the thought is not you. Therefore, it doesn’t matter who is right or wrong.
What they said is based on the limited information data they have. They actually don’t know.
Learn to come back to yourself by discovering your awareness. You are that awareness that are aware that they are thoughts.
You are aware of the breathing, the energy feeling in your hands, body, the heart beat, etc. You are that Awareness.
Once you realize you are that Awareness, you are living in the present moment, the NOW. You will have a sense that everything will be work out itself. After a storm, there is always a rainbow. After a night, there is always a day to come.
Whatever you are experiencing at this present moment, bad or good, it’s just a lesson for you to learn something about life. After a lesson, just move on with your life journey for the next new lesson to learn.
The Thoughts From A Present
When you keep maintain at that Awareness being, the present moment, the NOW, there will be thought arise from the present moment which will guide you whether for decision-making or do something. This is what I have said intuition come from the unknown, not from your thoughts.
I know it is not easy to maintain at that state of Awareness being, the present moment, because our monkey mind will keep interfering.
We have been so used to work with our thought for every minute every second, it is not easy to change this habit because we have been condition this way since young.
To change a habit, we just need to keep put the new habit into practice. We have been addicted to our thoughts. In order to remove this addiction, you need to have that determination and persistent because if not, you will give up very easy as we know that to remove an addiction is a hard work, it’s never easy.
Some people might ask is it worth it to go through this hard work? Living as an Awareness being, the present, the NOW, is the key word away from suffering and towards true happiness. Do you think is worth it?
Of course, the choice is yours. Everybody has their free will.
I have come across a very good video to share with everyone by Eckhart Tolle who has explained in a very details about how to deal with conflicting thoughts and how discovering awareness can free us from inner conflict. Please enjoy.
