You have much more clarity than you think. Re-read that last line again. You have a lot more clarity than you think. You see, clarity is what you are. Confusing thought is there in spades.
You may be confused, disorganized or even frustrated. It used to be logical and you used to know what to do. Similarly, whenever you are about to have a breakthrough, you will experience confusion and chaos. Confusion really is a prerequisite state in order for us to have breakthrough experiences. This means that whenever you feel confused, there is something happening within you.
Most of us think confusion just happens to us. As if confusion signifies something real about our knowing or not knowing what to do. We believe the circumstances that may arise from our choice will create our feelings. So rather than know you can decide how to think and feel no matter what circumstances or results happen from making a choice, you are abandoning yourself to the mercy of your unmanaged mind in the future. Your brain would rather take a nap.

The Mind Can Only Be Confused - Sadhguru
Yet, here you are: miserable, mediocre, lost and confused. I did ALL of those things a couple of years ago while I was desperately trying to figure out my calling in life. And after exhausting all of these options, I reached the conclusion that there was something wrong with me. Believe it or not, I concluded that I had some sort of genetic abnormality that made me incapable of ever feeling happy or fulfilled. So how did I move from lost and confused to clear about what I wanted in life and how to achieve it? Real transformational change only happens when you give up control.
We all get confused at times, but prolonged periods of confusion can cause us to feel that we are stuck in a never-ending, foggy web of uncertainty. Confusion can make us feel powerless, anxious, stressed and a whole host of other draining emotions. Yes, while confusion can stir up a seamlessly never-ending cloud of fog that envelops everything around you, it is also a sign of great and powerful change. Think about it. If everything made sense to you all the time, how would you ever grow? If you were always percent certain about every decision you made or every fork in the road, how would you ever shift or evolve? When you feel confused, it is a sign that your mind is expanding a little more.
Not doing something when you feel lost and confused is a healthy action. This becomes your mantra when the lost and confused sort of anxiety is nipping at your heels.

How will cultivate courage, boldness, bravery? How will you stay on-course? This is where creating a regular habit of courage, a courageous response to that old feeling of lost and confused instead of a fear-based response, comes in.
