“There is no reason to hesitate when you know that you have nothing to lose”.
That’s a quote from an email I received as part of Neale Donald Walsch’s mailing list today.
It’s one of those quotes that made me literally stop in my tracks. My conscious mind was desperately trying to come up with counter arguments, but it couldn’t. The rest of my mind stood still and smiled at this undoubtable cosmic truth.
There is no reason to hesitate when you know that you have nothing to lose.
Nothing to lose? What can that mean? Of course I have something to lose, my conscious mind piped in. But what? The material things around us come and go. Friends move in and out of our lives. We change jobs or responsibilities as time goes by. Everything changes. We don’t actually “own” anything. So we can’t “lose” anything. But this message is really about trusting our instincts.
It’s telling us that, if our intuition tells us something is the right thing to do, then it probably is, as long as we act for the highest good with love and compassion.
And if we, deep down, know it’s the right thing to do, then why wait? What’s the point in procrastinating?
Is there anything that you’ve been delaying doing? A decision you’ve been delaying making? Every day that goes by with that decision or action hanging around in limbo is one more day of missed opportunity. Making the decision and taking action on it today might just be the pivot point on your way to happiness.
Let me know what you decide to do!
