I’ve had a couple of good debates today. I love to debate and my Guides know that it’s the best way to get me working things out. The debates can be inside my head. Me with me. Or me with them. And me with people I might not feel able to debate with. And, of course, me with the people around me.
I’m sure my mum would say I was born asking why. She reminded me often about my endless questions. My ‘need to know’. I always remember feeling that if I could only understand then I could fit in better. First with my family. Then later in life with friends, colleagues and pretty much anyone who crossed my path. It always felt as if I was just a little bit outside of the human race. Looking in and desperately trying to make sense of life. That’s where my love of debate began. Asking myself both sides of a question. Looking for the third side. Or the fourth. Always with that Why firmly in mind.
Of course not everyone enjoys debate. I’ve found that many of the people I’ve met prefer black and white. Rather than the grey that tends to emerge when debating moral and spiritual questions. And some people want to be told rather than question for themselves. Which is why they sometimes find it frustrating working with their Guides. Guides like questions. They know I will eventually work it out if I can debate it out. Because they also know that most of us dismiss their worlds without even opening up to the possibility that Guides and Energy Beings may exist. So they chose well when they decided to attract my attention. In the end what my questioning brought out was clarity for me. I could work with them because I had worked with myself.
Now I encourage debate. I want people to ask me questions. And for us to continue debating until we reach some form of understanding of one another. Not necessarily that we will agree. But to reach a point where we feel we can collaborate together to change what we agree requires changing. Anyone ready for a good debate?
