“True wisdom gives the only possible answer at any given moment, and that night going back to bed was the only possible answer. Go back to bed, said this omniscient interior voice, because you don’t need to find the final answer right now, at three o’clock in the morning on a Thursday in November. Go back to bed, because I love you. Go back to bed, because the only thing you need to know tight now is get sine rest and take good care of yourself until you do know the answer.”
If you are like me, when you ask god/the universe a question or for an answer that you really need to hear right this moment and if the answer isn’t what you expect or not an answer at all you beat yourself up for not ‘hearing god’s voice or your inner guidance’. Elizabeth Gilbert puts it so nicely when she writes that some times the only thing we need is to go back to bed. Some times the only thing we need to do is just sit and be until we are sure what the answer is.
The universe has lots to do once you have asked your question. It has to whisper in peoples’ ears to make things happen and if they aren’t listening you may have to be patient a little longer.
For me the realisation wasn’t that the universe has to put a puzzle together to make my perfect picture. I trust the universe. The realisation for me was that some times it was ok to just do nothing and wait for the inner voice to be louder.
Trust that when the time is right, you will hear what your inner god/dess is telling you what to do.
