The Blind Leading The Blind

My mother had a saying and maybe your mother or someone you know has said it too, “the blind leading the blind.” I’ve heard it my whole life but I’ve only understood its true meaning since my awakening.

For years I’ve listened to and believed people. I listened to those who I thought were knowledgeable and wiser than me. They installed my faith in them. I believed what they said more than what I felt in my gut. What I believed to be their wisdom outweighed my instinct. I believe this is because I did not wholeheartedly believe in myself due to my inner child’s wounds.

Now I look but don’t listen to those same people and I think you’re lost too. You’re as lost as last year’s Easter egg and I was believing in you. I realize now they are acting on their wounds too. Some people practice power by being a “know it all”. They can tell you a little something about everything. But is it true? No! Nobody is an expert on everything. But because we have wounds and great insecurities, we believe them more than we believe in ourselves.

Because we don’t believe in ourselves and we haven’t shut down our insecurities and worked on healing we get more lost by putting our faith in someone who is practicing power. I’ll say it again, let your instinct guide you. Put your faith in God. Believe in that gut talk and educate yourself. Work towards your healing and don’t get misled by someone who is lost. If you do, you will be part of the “the blind leading the blind.”

Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Matthew 15:14
