Do you trust your personal instincts? Why or why not? Be specific.
what do you know instinctively that will … what?
…that your rational mind rejects.
As we come back together we would love to hear from you. Please share your thoughts or questions here in chat, or, raise your hand and we bring you in live - time permitting. Thanks.
Powerful question. Helped me realize how good my instincts are and how often I ref
it’s with doctors that my trust wobbles...it’s the old male authority thing!
being grounded matters
If I trusted my instincts and upon reflection, I was satisfied with the results, it reinforced my trust.
I no longer see a Raise Hand icon where it used to be.
Hi Emma, you are next. Thanks.
In addition to not trusting my own information, I often find myself saying that I should just "be quiet" and not "step forward. I will take the "easy way out" by not presenting my own ideas or challenges to other ideas.
Hmm—if the “right” decision can take many forms, I wonder if it’s actually possible to make a wrong decision?
great question, Nancy
Does obedience interfere with authenticity in your life? If so, how and why? If not, when did you learn to rebel?
I am a rebel at heart. Always was. Always will be. In fact, I now welcome obedience. I cherish it. I've experienced many journeys through sorrow - some of which I'm still sorting out today. But my rebel heart keeps pounding to the beat of my own unique drum. And I love that part of myself. I really do. I just want to temper it a little with some obedience in the next season of my life.
@Joanne - I’m struggling here with the two ideas: being a rebel and being authentic. I hope this comes up in the discussion.
I see authenticity as my natural state. I see rebelling as pushing against something imposed from the outside. But I can choose to be authentic without any need to rebel, surely?
In the same way that doubt has led me to seek more authentic truths, many times it has also made me doubt my instincts. In the end it is a question of power, of how I use that force either to free myself or to weaken myself, to obey or to rebel.
Thank you, Mark. I will go deeper
Thank you Tom, that’s very helpful.
Julie: Moral dilemmas enter into discussion of rebelliousness. Like the military—blind obedience going against what is right.
Wow! Lots to chew on. Thank you!
