Connecting the Dots
It is difficult, sometimes, to understand the direction a person is going or the line of thinking that is taking place. It is up to our understanding to listen carefully to the message being presented. It is up to our understanding to place the messages into a context that fits our knowledge. Then, it is our duty to connect the dots of the messages to the dots of knowledge to give us guidance and direction.
Do you ever feel like you are floundering with a problem, bouncing around and around in your head, without a solution revealing itself? Yes, I feel that way too. It takes an inordinate amount of time away from your schedule, as well as depleting your energy for the next round of problems. At these times in our lives, we need to find a way to separate ourselves from the problem-not taking it so personal-and reflect upon all we know and have learned. We must listen to others and their discussions in order make a well informed decision.
When we separate ourselves and stand outside the box, not allowing ourselves to be crowded in by four walls with no outside solutions, then we can see a bigger perspective emerge. We are enabled by our own intuition to dispel the truth of the matter. There is a greater chance for a solution to any problem to present itself within a reasonable amount of time without interference from our own ego. Step outside the box and spend some time looking around; moving from angle to angle if necessary. Use this time to listen to those conversations around you lending insight and possible directions to a solution.
When we use the time to listen, not only to others, but also our hearts, then the messages will be understood within a context of knowledge, leading us forward to a satisfying resolution. Find the dots that connect through listening, discerning for your own truth, and viewing the dilemma from a different perspective. Take the problem from your mind, spinning tales of negative thought processes, to your heart to illuminate the query. Listen to the reverberations of your heart as it discerns the truth and spins out a solution coming from a place of love.
Let this love be your guidance to connecting the dots.
