I was listening to Abraham Hicks, and she briefly talked about the difference in energy in a belief versus when you just "know" something.
Knowing has less resistance than belief.
Doubt has a lot of resistance, belief still has sometimes, some particles of resistance, but knowing has no resistance.
So how do we know something. It isn't a mental thing, it is the connection to our core, our higher self. It is connected to our purpose, and when we know there is no alternate.
Eckhart Tolle talks about the conflicting inner voices, versus knowing here. It is a very interesting experience, in that when he has the experience of knowing there is no conflicting voice present. It simply is there calling him to do this.
"What am I supposed to do in life? What is my real life mission? Sometimes you get paralyzed and then the mind comes up with all the reasons not to try something..
Instead of looking for the answer through the movement of thought-- there is never any real answer you arrive at through the movement of thought.
You must first become present. then at some point, a thought may come that has a different energy field to it. A thought that you feel, yes, that’s it. There is a certain realization that comes that may finally take the form of a thought, for example when I was living in Europe and I had the thought, I have to leave. THere wasn’t another thought that said, “No I should stay”. So the question is, what really matters here is realizing that you are not this voice or that voice, you are something deeper, you are the awareness of the presence.
Watch the full conversation here.
Listening to this reminded me of my own experience with starting the Community House. I had been thinking of what I could do with the money from my inheritance, and an idea would come, and I would say inwardly,
"I could do this....with the money."
and then the inner voice would say,
"What else are you going to do with the money?"
and then I would agree,
"Right, what else am I going to do with the money?"
So this went on several times, with fleeting ideas, and then the Community House became available. Again my head created the phrase, "What else are you going to do with the money!" And this time there was no response. Why? Because the Community House was the true option.
