Beyond Right and Wrong

by Scott Noelle

Children are born knowing that feeling good is more important than being “right.” They know their emotions are their Inner Guidance, and they trust it.

So why do they sometimes rebel and seem to care more about being right? One possibility is that you may be telling them something that contradicts their Inner Guidance.

For example, if you say “It’s time to go,” while their Inner Guidance tells them to stay, they know you are talking crazy talk!

If you say “You shouldn’t touch that,” while their instinct is to explore, one of you is lying... and it’s not them!

You can end conflict and transcend right/wrong thinking by tuning in to your Inner Guidance. Give it some time... The heart is slower than the head, but it’s wiser, too.

If you go deep enough, you’ll find the place where your Guidance and their Guidance overlap — the common ground where everyday miracles are born.
