Childbirth Meditation: Answers

breastfeedingMeditative Thoughts

It doesn’t help to rush forward and find all the answers before you understand all the questions.

Answers are helpful, but they are not everything. Sometimes having an answer to your question just leaves you with more questions.

We pride ourselves in being able to give answers, to demonstrate our knowledge. But the answers only make a difference if they will have an effect on the way we live our lives.

When something bad happens, we want answers. It can be helpful to know what happened so you can prevent it again, but having answers will not undo what was done.

Sometimes there are no answers. We do not know everything, we cannot predict everything, and we cannot be prepared for everything. But that does not stop us from moving forward and trying new things. The very nature of life is that you will not have the answers about where you are going until you are there.

Having answers will not change what happened, but it can change your perspective about what happened.

Encouraging words for you

Good questions outrank easy answers.
