Inquiry: It is wrong

When my intuition (heart, inner vision, knowing) tells me something would be …. (wonderful, exciting, joyful, nurturing, healing) and it doesn’t happen, it is wrong.

  1. True?
    Yes. That one feels true. It even aligns with stories I have and at times agree with.
  2. Sure?
    No.
  3. What happens when I believe that thought?
    • It feels wrong. My feelings and body tells me it is wrong.
    • I have stories telling me it is wrong: The universe set up a wonderful situation, it didn’t happen, and it is wrong.
    • When I fuel those stories, I sometimes go into stories elaborating or taking it further: It is a disaster. Something terrible happened. I lost something important to me. The opportunity will never come back. My life is ruined.
    • I feel it in my stomach. A knot in solar plexus. Butterflies. My limbs tingle. I breathe shallower or more forcefully.
    • I try to distract myself. I distract myself from emotions by talking about it with others, or going for a walk, watching a movie, eating.
    • I feel sad. Sometimes hopeless, angry, frustrated.
    • If another person is responsible, according to my stories, I make that person wrong. He or she made a wrong choice. Misguided. There is an experience of separation. Sometimes, I make them into an enemy.
    • What am I afraid would happen if I didn’t have that thought? I am afraid I wouldn’t know it is wrong. I am afraid I would be OK with it. That I would be oblivious. What is wrong with that? Hm. I cannot find anything. I would still follow what seems right in terms of intuition, heart, knowing.
  4. Who would I be without it?
    • Curious about what happened. Exploring what happened. A student. Learning from it.
  5. Turnarounds.
    • It is not wrong.
      • It is not wrong in an absolute sense, otherwise it wouldn’t have happened. The universe (reality, life, God) obviously allows it, so it is not wrong in that sense.
      • If I look, I may find benefits so it is not completely wrong.
      • Right and wrong are ideas and opinions, not inherent in what happens.
    • It is right, just what should happen.
      • Hm. There are reasons for it happening. It is cause-effect.
      • I get to see my reactions to it. There is an invitation there to feel the emotions and inquire into the beliefs.
      • It is life, reality happening. It is right in that sense.
