We Desperately Need to Abandon the ‘One Size Fits All’ Approach

Getting Into a Tight Squeeze

“Truth is multi-faceted and can't be squeezed into one or two concepts. We need to leave room for expansion especially for the things we cannot explain or understand right now.”

We have a local store where I live that sells clothes. My husband bought a belt from them recently. He is a very slim chap and when he got home he was horrified to discover that the belt did not fit him.

I bought myself a smashing pair of leggings that said ‘one size fits all'. When I got home, they did indeed fit me except for one little detail — there was no room for a derriere! Comically, when I wear them the front pulls up A-Okay but there is a major underpants revealing sag to the back end.

Perhaps in the location where these items were made, the bodies of the people are a tad bit smaller? Either that or my husband and I have entered megalithic proportions.

All jokes aside, this concept has been threatening me too many times for it not to have some underlying, sound metaphysical synchronous advice. As I sat yesterday — absorbing a rather dichotomous talk show that got me thinking — a little message popped into my head and said, ‘one size doesn't fit all‘.

Throwing the Baby Out With the Bathwater

The above adage simply means to lose valuable ideas/things in an attempt to get rid of what is not wanted or, in other words, rejecting the essential along with the inessential.

For example: You may absolutely detest conspiracy theories and every time you catch a whiff of one, you dismiss it as utter nonsense without doing any research into the matter or checking in with your innate wisdom or gut instinct.

There is undoubtedly a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to conspiracy theories and there is certainly ample speculations to throw out. However, to lump them all as ridiculous, shields any endeavor at viewing something from a different perspective — even if doing that inevitably leads you to still toss the idea out.

When you do a little investigative work before kicking something to the curb, you have then covered your derriere instead of leaving it exposed! The ‘one size fits all' has been sized up.

Bombshells and Tin Foil

The same could be applied to a lot of spiritual information out there.

Let's face it, the internet is being bombarded with YouTube videos, articles (like this one *blush*), books, coaches, radio shows and all sorts of other ways we can communicate with others about our personal philosophical truths and existential theories about life, death and everything in between.

The problem arises with being ‘overloaded' with information and, for want of a better phrase, not knowing your ass from your elbow.

There is so much information out there — a lot of it can be quite contradictory not only to others opinions but sometimes we find someone who contradicts their own thesis (albeit covertly) — I sometimes feel I need to don an aluminium hat to shield myself from a possible meltdown!

Take a Knee and FEEL Your Truth

On our path to ascension (or spiritual awakening or whatever else you want to call it) it's only natural that we strive to know more and find out as much as we can — it can be an exciting trip down the rabbit hole to venture out into the world of the alternative — but never lose sight of the fact that intrinsically your soul already knows and all else is merely reminding you of that.

That's why any teacher, guru or master usually proclaims that if anything they teach doesn't resonate, you should not take it on board. This may be for many reasons, two being that:

  • this is not true for you or,
  • you are not ready to take it on yet (have you ever read a spiritual book that didn't gel with you at the time of reading? then you pick it up years later and…bingo! You hit the wisdom jackpot because you have now grown into your ears, so to speak)

We can easily flip from one article to the next, one talk show to the next — absorbing a plethora of energy and data — just remember to give yourself much needed time to integrate any new information.

This is where you can commune with your over-soul and glean your personal truth by sitting in stillness and asking for integration and clarification.

Gift yourself with time to mull things over because one size certainly does NOT fit all. Truth is multi-faceted and can't be squeezed into one or two concepts. We need to leave room for expansion especially for the things we cannot explain or understand right now.
