A Remedy for Feeling Stupid. ~ Susan Perkins & David MacKenzie


“Stupid” is a word with big teeth.

It is a word we each learned from someone who misunderstood the wondrous value of not knowing.

It is a word designed to take a piece out of the soulful confidence, the soulful knowing that we are.

It is a word designed to shackle and limit the voice of truth in our hearts.

What is the cure?

“Stupid” is a word that activates itself quickly.

If we notice the speed with which it can presence itself and bite into our hearts, we have begun to take away its power.

We cannot be “stupid” because, in truth, we come from the vast wisdom that life is.

We truly are of God.

We are built from timeless wisdom.

On the other side of “stupid,” is the knowing that we are whole.

Errors in understanding are the most valuable symptom of new understanding evolving and real change—real growth—occurring.

The most important part of the healing of “stupid” is to recognize the lie that the word points to.

Long ago we were trained to believe that what we thought we knew were the actual facts that underpinned the world around us.

It has been proven over and over that all facts about the known world are temporary.

Our lives are larger than any set of facts.

The word “stupid” is designed to shrink the rich knowing that we ultimately are.

The remedy lies in understanding the word is a lie.

Not knowing something is to be loved as a state of being.

Now it is time to welcome the necessary not-knowing that is everywhere in our world, so that the matrix of illusion can once and for all fall away.

Is this not what we long for?

Now is the time for gratitude to become connected to uncertainty.

Yes, uncertainty.

Now we are invited and endorsed by love itself to welcome this great shift with courage and heart.

If we sit still with uncertainty we can begin to see the path of rich life that is before us.

The word “stupid” has been trained into us and activates itself very quickly.

Now we can catch it, change it and exceed it.

There is a judgment in “stupid” that wants to bring death to the next step of growth we are all being called into.

Revolt against this word and its legacy.

We have never been nor will ever be “stupid.”

It is impossible.

We will be uncertain. That is the symptom of life in motion.

And with kind patience we will come to understand—to know—in ways that will bring us joy, freedom and love.
