NOBODY knows better than you what’s right for you. NOBODY. Let me say what I really mean: NOBODY.
Advice? Get some. Oracles? Consult them. Friends? Worship them. Actual gurus? Honour them. Final say? YOU. All you. No matter what.
No matter how psychic that psychic is, or how rich the business consultant is, or how magical the healer, or bendy the yoga instructor. All that experts offer you is data for you to take into consideration. YOU are the centrifugal force that must filter, interpret, and give meaning to that data. Your body knows. Your heart knows. Your mind will help you act on what you know.
My guiding philosophy about any philosophy is: take what you want and leave the rest.
There is no one ideology or teacher who is one hundred percent right. Even though they may be vastly, deeply experienced, experience is based on the past. We can’t always look for precedent to inform our future. How they did it, what worked then…that was them then, this is you in the now.
Will there be times when you should heed external advice? Yep. Plenty of them. Because when your good, wise friend says, “Have you lost your mind?!”—well, maybe you have. But you have to make the final call. Your Soul has a plan. And your Soul is your authority.
And that’s some white hot truth.
