Trying to understand

This is a very tough life lesson to learn and something that most people struggle with their entire lives. When this concept is mastered, the life that you live and be wonderful. (Personally, I am NOT there yet)

What am I talking about?

I am talking about trying to understand everything. If you anything like me, you over analyze situations. By over analyzing situations or trying to always figure it out, a person can literally drive themselves crazy.

There is a saying:

Don't try to understand everything. Because sometimes it's not meant to be understood , but to be accepted.

That sounds great doesn't it? But in reality this is very tough to do, especially when the human being and the mind wonders and has a need for "knowing." It makes us feel, in a sense, complete.

Through self discipline and experience, we can beat these odds though and accept life, accept situations and circumstances for what they are and look past them.

What does "accepting" do for us when we really master this art?

Thinking is not a bad thing and I believe that the people that think make the world go around and create a very interesting world but by accepting things at times that we cannot figure out opens us up to a brand new world. When we are not busy trying to figure it out all of the time we can see reasons of why this happened and get a focus on where we need to take our life next. By trying to figure everything out we become blind to a certain extent to what and who are around us and if we are not careful, we will miss the great thing that is there for us.

Next time you can't figure something out, try to start working on yourself and the ability to just accept whatever it is and open your eyes to what has come into your life. This could make the difference that you are waiting for.
