There’s a tug-of-war that occurs in most lives between an outer and inner view and whichever view is given more energy determines if our actions and reactions are based to self serve or to love.
If we are unconscious in our daily decision making process, many of our actions and reactions will be habitual decisions made without knowing if they’re really beneficial to our life. Without some semblance of awareness that provides a degree of stillness, our life becomes one of unquestioned assumptions as we unconsciously think we are the decider of our decisions. There’s no need to question this if it is assumed one has all the answers. These are the created blocks that hamper our ability to live from our intuitive stillness.
When life is lived from unquestioned assumptions this creates a battle between our inner urging from the Universe, which is to love and our outer urging from the ego, which is to self serve. This battle is a inner tug-of-war with ourself. When the ego is in control we have unquestioned assumptions that the things of the world are in place to fulfill our outer desires, but intuitively we’ll know this not to be true if there is stillness because we will understand our inner urging from the Universe.
Our outer urgings are a product of our environment, of our influences, and of one’s ego. This is what creates assumptions and makes them go unquestioned. The fallacy of this is in how life is lived and how everything seems to be as it appears. The ego creates this and it blocks our ability to love, this is what causes our internal battle. But if the assumptions were questioned and the mind stopped long enough to see this fallacy, our inner essence of love would be exposed as our intuitive essence. This would stop the tug-of-war with our ego and the unquestioned assumptions would never cause us to battle ourselves again.
