It is easier to do than to be; to act than to have faith; to plan rather than to trust.
Often when chiropractors ask what they can do to extricate themselves from a rough patch or an unpleasant circumstance, I’ll often suggest that they do nothing. “You’re already doing too much. Instead, who do you need to be?”
Being accepting, forgiving, appreciative, understanding or tolerant are more difficult than adding a new procedure, saying a new script or establishing a new policy. Putting your faith in what you do rather than who you are, confuses effect with cause. Actions are always the effect of who you are being. Any action without the appropriate accompanying belief is ineffective. You become an amateur actor rather than authentically you.
When you’re unsure what to do, it’s usually a sign you don’t know who you are. Be still. Know yourself. What you need to do will become clear!
