Many spend a lot of time trying to make life make sense. You don’t always need to know why you think or feel the way you do. You don’t need to try to figure out why people do the things they do or why they are the way they are. You are looking at their situation from your experiences and your perspective, not theirs—which means it could be impossible for you to understand. Sometimes it just doesn’t make sense and that’s okay.
I used to be one of those analytical (and sometimes over-analytical) people who tried to make sense of everything. If I could just make sense of it, I might feel better about what happened. Sometimes I could understand it and I could move on; sometimes I could rationalize it and I still didn’t feel any better; and sometimes I just couldn’t make it make sense so I tried my best to forget about it and go on.
When I started working with energy many years ago, I experienced many things that I could not explain. How can hips adjust with just placing the hands on the body? How can I be following someone in my car at a certain speed and once I change lanes, I pass them yet I am still going the same speed? I analyzed everything! When the thought finally occurred to me that I am not able to make sense of everything, it opened up a whole new world for me and saved me a lot of frustration. In fact, this concept is actually Infinite Healing™ Principle #9--It Is What it IS (page 121). This principle explains that we actually don’t have to make sense of anything. Note that this principle is a different take on the phrase than how it is commonly used.
If you are continually trying to apply logic to life and justify why things are the way they are and why people do the things they do, you may miss out on time that could be better spent on other things. Needing to know why gets you stuck in the limited human Mind, gets you trapped in logic, and stagnates the flow of positive energy. Needing to know why puts you in the way of Unconditional Love.
Spend more time doing things you enJOY and less time trying to make life make sense.
Why do things have to make sense to you?

I recently noticed that sometimes I make decisions from Spirit and other times my actions would come from ego.
Ego-based actions are those that have a benefit to me as a person, those that will make me look good to others, that show how good of a person I am, or that I will get a direct reward from. Am I doing this because it benefits me? Am I doing this because I feel obligated to? Am I making this decision out of fear? If the answer is yes, it is from ego.
Spirit-based decisions are made from a standpoint of Unconditional Love. This means doing something because that is what is best for the Universe not because it is what is best for me; it means doing things where I expect absolutely nothing in return (not even a thank-you); and it means that I whatever I do, I do because I want to not because I "should" or feel obligated to.
Prior to the release of the Infinite Healing™ book I had written down several goals, one of which was to have the book on the New York Times best-seller list. I regularly used the Infinite Healing™ tools to direct the energy to try to help me accomplish this goal. After the release of the book, an overwhelming feeling of Peace came over me and I KNEW in my Heart that getting the book published was actually the ultimate goal. Whether it sells a few thousand or millions doesn't matter-the information is out there for those who are ready for it. As I looked back over the goals I had set, I noticed that most of them were ego-based. This list is no longer posted where I see it every day and is now in my recycle bin. My Spirit-based goal for the book is to help as many people as possible.
Now that I am aware of the difference, before I make a decision of whether or not I will do something, I ask myself, "Am I taking action from Spirit or ego?". If the answer is ego, I re-evaluate the situation.
Do you take action from Spirit or ego?
I have been considering creating this blog for some time. The reason it has taken me so long to actually do so is that I was hesitant to create yet one more thing to try to keep up on. However, as I make the posts on my Infinite Healing™ and All About Health, Inc. facebook pages, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and Instagram, I feel that I am limited with what I say. I want to use this blog as a place to give you the details and inspiration for the messages and information I am putting out there.
So stay tuned for information to help you create a life filled with Joy, Happiness, Peace, and Harmony!
May your day flow in Unconditional Love & Unconditional Gratitude™,
