How To Know When To Stop Looking For Answers

When we have exhausted all of the answers-from your doctor to scientists, from your own soul-we need to stop searching for answers and move on to the next important goal. The first is not necessarily the most important.

If you’re reading this now, what is it? If you’ve seen this page before, you know you’re coming here. This is just one more reason to stop searching for answers. I won’t lie. If you’re a new reader, this is not going to help ease your stress. I’m telling you this so you’ll stop looking for answers. It’s just better to know where you stand now, and if you stay, you can always see the light at the end of the tunnel. This one is really up to you.

So how do you know when it’s time to stop looking for answers? It’s always time to stop looking for answers! Look around you. What will happen if you don’t look at the answers around you, and just look for the answers in yourself? What happens if you think you need “them” to be happy, to live well, and to take care of you? It’s like putting in a new coat of paint on your house, and then deciding to look at the walls for clues to your problems-without doing the work to replace the paint.

You just need to start taking time for yourself because all the answers are right there-everywhere, just waiting in the dark. So why are you so afraid to explore the answer-yourself? Maybe you’re afraid your answers will be too obvious to ignore. Maybe you need the truth, and that leads to a more dark place. Maybe you’ve been living in the dark, and even when things seemed to change for the better, your life was still based around the darkness.

How To Get The Truth

I am going to tell you something that should surprise you, and then help you get on the right track. I’m not going to tell you you need the answer to your problems to be happy. I mean this! Even though I am going to be telling you this, I don’t actually believe it. So do yourself a favor and look to your life and your current situation in order to figure out what your life is really all about- what you want to achieve, what you want to feel good about, and where your heart is most definitely at.

If you’ve done your homework, you should be able to figure everything out pretty fast. Forgive me for being vague and vague-I know it doesn’t help you get to the right place, but I want to help you get on your feet, just in case.

The first thing you need to know is that the truth-my truth-is right there. Look, I don’t know you really well, so don’t get all worked up. You already know this…but I’m going to say it anyway:  your truth exists in a place not everyone can see, but everyone should see.

A good example of a place no one can see is the unconscious. We all are conscious when we wake up, but that fact doesn’t mean you’ve arrived at your truth in a timely fashion. For this reason, I believe a good way to start is with unconscious things that you want to deal with. When you have unresolved conflict, you will subconsciously want to move past it. The problem is, you might not be aware that you are moving past it.

So how do you know when you have reached the unconscious? You just have to keep doing the unconscious thing-the same thing over and over. The longer you do it, the more it’ll catch up to you. I have done this many, many times.  What I always have to do to move past my problems with my dad was to try to go back in my mind for the first times he was angry.
