Are you voluntarily reducing yourself?
Are YOU making yourself less than you actually are?
If you know something..you know it.
If you feel something…it is so.
In that moment it is irrelevant “how” you know/feel it, or “from what/which” source, “who else” does it and “what will they think”.
All of this is irrelevant, self-belittling, and requiring disciplining, ‘mind clutter’. 😉 It contradicts your inner wisdom, and is only programming absorbed since your birth, from the maintained and current ignorance around you.
It was seen as necessary to ridicule and ignore, to remove or reduce, our natural instincts and intuition, simply because they could not be understood within the ignorance of English.
As there was no means to understand these concepts when establishing society, they needed to be over-ruled, and the handy “nothing exists unless there is a tool by which it can be measured,” proclamation made in Victorian times, to quickly allow focus to be on economic development, served this purpose.
Of course they, and it, were WRONG, and your feelings and knowings are RIGHT for you, and have been all along. 🙂
