Being led can feel like being deceived, especially when where you feel you’re being pulled to pushes the boundaries of your belief system, and causes chaos in everything you’ve come to know and hold dear. Sometimes it’s at a crisis of faith that our true self is born.
You’re being led outside of your beliefs, that’s why it feels like deception. What you’ve believed has taken you so far; it’s all you know. But to grow you have to let go of what you know.
Don’t be afraid to believe something more; something new, something different. You must trust where you’re going. You’re being led not deceived.
Many are deceived and they don’t know it. They’ve been deceived to believe that ‘this’ is where they are ‘supposed’ to be. What we believe to be ‘rightful duties’ or ‘responsible decisions’ can many times become a vice; chains that keep us bound.
What’s on the other side of what you believe?
You will never know until you let go of what you think you know.
Deception is believing you are supposed to be ‘here.’ ‘Supposed to’ is an obligation, a duty, an expected responsibility. ‘Supposed to’ is the binding agent of small.
People won’t get you, and many times you won’t get you, but that is no excuse to remain where you were never meant to be. There’s no greater reason to be your self than the simple fact that it’s your birthright.
If everyone else comes along, great! If not, you must press on. You will discover a new community, a stronger support system, when you arrive.
You can’t ask people to support you who don’t believe in what you’re doing. And they certainly won’t follow you if they feel your are going the wrong way.
Sometimes the only way to know is to go.
Trust where you’re going. You’re being led not deceived.
