“Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.”
Today’s Proverb reminds me a lecture I once heard about the development of the human brain over time. Did you know that there are things embedded into our psyche that help protect us? Many humans have a natural fear of snakes as do a lot of other living creatures on earth. What about that gut feeling we all have when something bad is about to happen. I think this gut feeling is wisdom speaking to us. Wisdom of the past genetic crosses that have crossed since the beginning of human existence. We would all be served a lot better if we would listen more often to this gut feeling.
“There are receptors to these molecules in your immune system, in your gut and in your heart. So when you say, ‘I have a gut feeling’ or ‘my heart is sad’ or ‘I am bursting with joy,’ you’re not speaking metaphorically. You’re speaking literally.
Trust your gut feeling. If it says run, then run. If it says maybe, then run to a safe place and investigate. If it has to happen now you might be better off by saying no.
