“I am search of the final level where the spirit takes over from the mind and guides the body without thought.” “Leroy this is not a punishment, it is a celebration you have touched the final level, you knew without knowing…” ~The Last Dragon~
These powerful lines come from a cheesy cult film called, “The Last Dragon.” http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089461/ It was a great fun film; G-rated enough to entertain the kiddies and yet kept my interest by fulfilling my love of martial arts without a lot of blood and gore.
It has been 28 years since I first saw that film, but I never forgot those lines. Whenever I say to myself, “I don’t know,” I still respond with, “you know without knowing,” delve deeply within and trust that the answer is already there. Whenever I take this approach, decisions are made quickly and amazing things always happen.
Wisdom can come through anyone, anywhere, at any time. You know when a message is for you. You feel like looking around and saying, “Wow! is he talking to me?” The words seem to stand out while everything around you comes to a halt. The message is so specific that it couldn’t possibly be just a coincidence.
I believe that this is how our Creator, Inner Guide, God–speaks to us when we are open to receive. Being open to receive is the key to receiving the message. Being open requires a quieting of inner chatter, a surrendering of resistance or ego and a belief that there is a force greater than you.
Those words have truly helped me at times when my life was going around in circles. I felt like I was wandering in a wilderness, unable to make a decision. I needed to trust myself–to trust that I knew without knowing. Receiving the message is just part one of this movie though because just like any good movie, action is required.
