The 3 'mistakes' 


As we travel our path, we happen upon moments of enlightenment. Something resonates with our soul and the light comes on. Usually when this happens we want to share our joy; and this is when these 'mistakes' rear their heads.

1. We assume that people are rational. This depends on where they are coming from. If fear is running the show, you will find that people are not rational. If you were talking about something outside their comfort zone, the fear may be doing the talking and no one is listening. 

2. You can never assume that people are eager, or even willing to entertain change of any kind. They may be more than happy to remain as they are and not risk changing the status quo. Even though you are excited about your recent download of information, it does not mean they are.

3. And finally, you assume that once you have enlightened them on your new found knowledge they will feel exactly as you do. They will choose what you have chosen. Not necessarily so. If they didn't find this information on their own, if they hadn't been seeking this knowledge in the first place, it's quite unlikely that they will just accept your point of view. 

When you find what you are looking for, it's a very exhilarating and begs to be shared. You may find that no one is that interesting in your discovery, and that's OK. They are on their path and you are on yours. Everything happens at the right time, and when you are ready the teacher comes. So, continue on your path, discover new discoveries and enjoy your life; the others are doing their thing and you need to continue to do yours.
