The “Right” Time To Act

It is difficult when our intuition tells us not to do
something we think we should do.
Consider the possibility it is not the right time.
~~Shakti Gawain, posted Tuesday 22 Feb. 2011

I couldn’t help feeling troubled by Shakti’s words. It is difficult to trust when our institutions tell us not to do something we think we should do. Especially when we know that often the reason behind such directives is their desire not to lose influence, power, status, money or any combination of these.

Here’s something else to consider: any time one goes against the main stream, waves will occur. Some of these waves will be re-absorbed, others will provoke changes.

So, is a given moment to act not the “right” time?

Whether we decide to act or not, only the passage of time can show us the answer.


I wrote about INSTITUTIONS where Shakti was writing about our INTUITION!

The lack of reaction here disappoints me, I was hoping someone would post SOMETHING about “my error”!

    “Whether we are deciding to trust our intuition or institutions
    it is quite true that the passage of time can and does show us the answer, Marilyn.
    Thank you for your comments.”
