Living With Doubt


Perhaps you thought that as soon as you took the path you believed you had to be on, the path that would take you to your destiny, the path that is your path, that you would no longer have any doubts.

The Buddha said: There is nothing more dreadful than the habit of doubt. Doubt separates people. It is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks up pleasant relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.
So welcome to the real world. Goethe stated: We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge, doubt increases. Doubts may assail you at every step of the way. Just because you believe in your path, does not mean doubts will not come knocking at your door. They may even be rather less polite and attempt to tear your door down. Thunderbolts and lightning may be thrown at your door and the rattling and thumping may lead you into fear. However, precisely because these doubts come knocking in an attempt to to throw you off your path, you have the opportunity to renew your vows, so to speak, to re-evaluate and convince yourself anew in the realization that this - whatever it is that you are doing and striving for - is indeed your path, and that no doubts will throw you off.

In this sense, doubts can be your friends. Gibran wrote: Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that fiath is his twin brother. As they arise, examine them dispassionately. Compare them with your dreams and goals. Evaluate and perhaps you may need to alter your bearings slightly. Even a jet on automatic pilot will make adjustments, depending on the wind and storms outside, but it will, weather notwithstanding, reach its final destination. As you can. Use your doubts wisely and you will find that they make you stronger and lead you more firmly towards your goal.

Doubt is the father of invention. Ambrose Bierce

For much more about life meaning, goals, believing in yourself, living consciously, about being aware of your thoughts and feelings, how you react to others and how you love yourself, as well as about choosing to seek your inner well-being above all, in order that you may have a ripple effect on all those who come in contact with you, have a look at my book Rewiring the Soul: Finding the Possible Self, available at Amazon as a paperback or e-book for Kindle and all Kindle applications.
