Carolyn’s Tipz – Confusion

Confusion   (Listen while you read)


We all suffer from confusion from time to time; do we not my dear friends?

Indeed, confusion can cause us much great alarm; for its purpose is to cause us to go around and around in circles.

Hahaaa, this it does. It causes us to stir around and around; like a spoon in a teacup.

I don’t particularly like feeling this ‘spoon in a teacup’ experience; and I doubt that you do too.

Therefore, we have a problem; a problem that needs a solution.

Has anyone a solution to this problem? If yes, pray tell us your solution.

In the meantime, I shall offer a solution.

Firstly; let go of the spoon. Yes my friends; let go of the spoon. Stop stirring; that’s right. In order to ‘stop the circling around and around’ we firstly need to stop stirring. That’s right. When we are not stirring, we can sit quietly. That’s right. When we can sit quietly, we allow the circling to cease. That’s right. When we can allow the circling to stop, we can see better the solution to our confusion. That’s right. When we have a better view of the confusion we are better able to come to a solution.


This is confusion –  this is what confusion asks of us:  It asks us to get our knickers in a knot.

If we can alleviate this knot, somewhat, we are already coming to a solution.

    1. Indeed, Trisha. I’ve been known to do this on many an occasion. As you say – a good lesson to learn.. I’m all for any lesson that makes our lives simpler, easier, and more enjoyable.. After all, isn’t life a playground of experience, choice, and hopefully, wisdom as a reward.

  1. Whew! This is great advice. The best!
    “lol” if anyone knows ho to stir a spoon it’s me.
    Kisses and hugs, and I’m focused on a still cup of tea! (or at least trying)

    1. It’s a simple solution, Kim… 😀
      I find it works – if I remember to use it..!
      I think I’ll remember it better, now that I’ve written it here.! I find that to be true for so many things. Once I’ve written it somewhere, it seems to become more ‘automatic’…
