Advice is what we seek…when we already know the answer but hope we are wrong. All too often we see through the eyes of our desires and override what is obviously in front of our noses and sometimes all too subtly within our own awareness. It is the suble awareness that we must cultivate and trust.
I have to admit that when choosing a good relationship I tend to gravitate towards difficult ones. I know, this is a unique problem to me and I am the only person belaboring this point, ha, ha.
Anyway, recently, a man caught my eye and apparently he felt a bit of a tug too and came over and introduce himself. He seemed nice so I invited him to sit down. The conversation was easy and we had somethings in common. So when he asked for my phone number…perhaps coffee or tea some day soon? Sure!
However, I had a twinge when he sat down, which in the past I would have ignored. A very subtle twinge but there all the same. So, I grabbed a friend who happened to know him and, yes, the twinge was a warning. The good friend verified that something was not up-and-up with this man and I was saved from getting into a possibly disastrous situation.
The moral of the story: We must trust our own sublte signals and it’s okay to grab a good friend…and a cup of tea…to validate our intuition which makes it all that much easier to trust ourself the next time. After all isn’t that’s what friends are for…to save our ass when we are about to take a nose-dive back into our unconscious patterns. Yikes!
