Finding without Searching 4


Information often appears in the most unlikely of places. It seems that when we stop searching, the answer comes to us clearly. Why is this?

Information is everywhere and in everything. If you are able to keep yourself open—like a receiving tower—you will be able to pick up on sensitive information that you might not have seen otherwise.

Little messages of information, like answers to your inner questions, can come from many unlikely sources, such as through nature, billboard signs, newspaper articles, and etc. Information and help is held within many sources. You just have to not look for them.

It is very easy to find information when you are not looking for it. This is because once you begin to look for information, you mistakenly “lock onto” a specific want and unknowingly clear out the rest of what you’re receiving, which is basically everything else, in order to find what you’re looking for more easily. This is a common and expected action of the brain when it wants to focus. Take a broader perspective and this “selective attention” no longer makes any sense. The brain must learn to be able to process and pay attention to more than one thought at a time in order to become more efficient, because within this “everything else” that the brain is choosing to leave from its attention while it searches for something else, could be important information and potential lessons that could be learnt.

So, as I said above, information appears in the most unlikely of places; and it often seems that when we stop searching, the answer comes to us clearly.

So why is this? Well, this is because when you stop searching, you allow yourself to focus on everything and not just a single thing; and within everything there is always an answer to something. This is the moment where you finally give yourself the chance to unbiasedly find, and often sometimes receive more than what you were looking for originally.

    I always wondered why I would find something after I stopped looking for it. I noticed the trend so I don’t look for things so hard anymore. Do you have any suggestions on how to gain patience when looking for something like guidance? When you have a big decision maybe?

    Very true indeed. I often find that when I focus on something that is puzzling me I cannot find the answer. Do you have any tips on how to broaden your mind and how not to be clouded and focused on the information at hand? I suppose being more patient would help!

    Actually, this sounds impossible, but truly it’s very possible and happens. I can attest to this; most times when I become too desperate about information of knowing about something, I seem not to get what I need. But the real thing/answer/solution often come when I’m less concerned.
