Following your intuition isn't always easy, but it also shouldn't really be difficult either. Sometimes your intuition will take you down rabbit holes and you'll find important things there! And, often, when you come back, you are able to look and say that your intuition developed in some interesting and powerful way. You learn that diving down particular rabbit holes almost always teaches you something. I trust certain rabbits, myself.
Everyone you meet will have something they want to feed your intuition, which tells me it's important that you pay attention to your own senses and stay centered while you evaluate what people are saying to you. Everyone wants something. Even I come wanting you to read this, to make some sense of it. What do we all really need from each other though? Love, how we may find it. Acknowledgement, in whatever way we understand or feel appropriate. Prosperity and security, should we be equipped. Most of us need help, and we aren't always sure how, and others show up and lend a hand solving hardy mysteries we've been carrying around. Real, thick, muddy misdirection that shaded everything we would do, growing inside of us like an inescapable habit. But someone looks at us the right way, or says something that seems so simple, we are blinded for it, and it feels like we've shed these sources of weight and tension in our bodies. It frees us, cleanses us, so that we can start picking up the things we mean to be carrying around, begotten by fresh eyes and saved for what can be good in this life. Where are those remnants of truth? How can one be so deliberate to free themselves for what is and what ought to be?
We know things will reach in and afflict us, but we also know these things must be made tangible to be confronted. I know, as well as anyone, that things left to simmer will eventually boil over, and I have a habit of trying to figure out where and how it happens, testing limits and patience; but I've also found that this tendency for experimentation makes me a good engineer. More often than not, gut instincts take us where we need to explore. Wherever I went, I'd been looking for signs that my work was finished, but these could never be found. I'd always have work to do, and I would find new ways to work, often, as I always had.
