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.

Yes one has to put your big girl broeks on and deal with it.
As opposed to our ‘knickers’ in a knot..
Hahaaa.. Very good, Mel.. 😀
stop stirring the spoon is a lesson well learnt carolyn, we often make things worse
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.
i was quite an expert in this field… i used to brew up a storm in my mind from slightest disturbances…
You and me both, Trisha… ‘Past experts’.. 😀
“stop stirring the spoon” <<< love it, Carolyn! A wonderful lesson.
I’ve always loved ‘visual’ keys, Kathy. 😀
This one works a treat…!
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)
Hahaaa, Resa; you and me both…!
Enjoy the cuppa. I’m just about to make one…. No spoon… lol 😀
Good advice, Carolyn! ❤
Thank you, sweet one.
Advice I try to follow..! 😀
That is a great solution I couldn’t come up with a better one.
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’…
waiting for next tip 🙂
😉 😀 😉
Great realistic post,most of people confuse themselves for one reason for not planning ahead of time.Specially students when it comes to plan for the future career .Have a wonderful week.JMS
Indeed, Jalal; we so often cause ourselves harm by not taking seriously the damaging effects of confusion.
And to you, a wonderful week ahead.
Wonderful message. Your way of expressing this message is very good.
Thank You, Sara.
I’m pleased you think so.. 😉
It is so well written… The poignant use of the simile. And a wonderful message. 🙂
Thank You, Sharen.
I love similes. They can be a great way to add a little humour into serious topics, to be sure. 😀
So true, Carolyn. When confusion enters sometimes the challenge is to figure out what’s causing the mess! Nice post.
Yes, ’tis true. We can certainly get our knickers in a knot, otherwise… 😉 😉
It’s always lovely to see your avatar; brings a smile every time! 🙂
