Drop What You Know

“I cannot tell you my truth until you stop telling me yours.” Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch

I challenge you to have a transformation in your relationship to what you think you know. The Baptiste Methodology is about opening up to inquiry. One inquiry Baron poses is to consider that you don’t know the whole truth about anyone or anything. We all view other people and situations through our limiting points of view. I have come to realize that my ability to “Drop What I Know,” which is Law 6 in Baron Baptiste’s book 40 Days to Personal Revolution, and “to drop what I think I know to be true” are the keys to really knowing truth.

The truth is not a thought. In fact, your mind will lie to you and tell you all sorts of crazy things: “I am not good enough, smart enough, too fat, bad, ugly, not strong enough, I can’t do that, or if I do, I will fail and look like a fool…blah…blah…blah…” Truth is a feeling. You don’t even have to think about it because you can feel it in your gut, your heart and in every cell of your being. It is like love. You can’t talk yourself into loving someone. Until you feel the love inside of you, it only exists in your mind. Your intellectual knowledge is nothing until it filters from your head, to your heart, and you know it on a gut level. The truth that is deep within each and every one of us is also the universal truth. When we get out of our head, we create space for the unknown and we begin to see the miracles all around us.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” Albert Einstein

Live your life as if every day is a miracle!
