#7 of 108: Go All In!
This weekend I watched a documentary on the late Beatle, George Harrison.
My ears perked up during the part about Harrison’s fascination with the yogis.
He quoted Vivekanda, “If there’s a God you must see it, if there’s a soul you must perceive it…otherwise better not to believe. Better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite.”
Point being, if you are going to be a believer, then you have to be all in!
This doesn’t mean be a fanatic.
But in your own quiet or not so quiet way, crush your doubt and commit to trusting fully in your heart, your intuition, and the little signs and coincidences that arise throughout your day.
Next time you pick up a random book that says just the right thing, or run into someone on the street with a little message, or feel the current suddenly at your back…
…double down on your belief, instead of letting that wussy, skeptic hater whisper doubts in your ear.
As Ramakrisha said: “Do not seek illumination unless you seek it as a person whose hair is on fire seeks a pond.”
