At different life stages, it is common to feel lost and to ask, 'how do I know what is best for me right now?'
People are compelled to reach outside themselves, to experience situations where they are inspired or discover they are not. It is where they explore what life is about.
Sometimes a person benefits from a guide to help understand what it is in each place or relationship that attracts or repels. Each teacher and discovery empowers a person to find out more him or herself.
Come what may, questions can arise. Each person forms decisions based on a variety of data available; the wisdom of the ages, the current view of Science, the highest ideals of the heart, moral guides and mentors. Ultimately, each human being is responsible for his/her own decisions.
In some ways, conscience draws attention to two kinds of spiritual questions; one relates to thoughts of what is right or wrong, linked to ingrained rules. The other is how to be a spiritual person. That is, how does one live and act in harmony with divine nature? How does one tune into the cycles of the universe, inner spontaneity and inspiration and be aware of the divine in everything? Soulful exploration helps one expand awareness.
It is one thing to choose between good and evil as defined by the external world. It is quite another to discern the difference between the impulses of divine nature and cravings of the conditioned ego self. Being a moral (judgemental) person and a wholly person (who sees/acts from wholeness) are two different things. Regardless of the path taken, a guiding light helps along the way.
