“As long as you fear your own ability to know what you do, you cannot be fully cooperative. (A Course of Love, 20.32)”
1 – Tiny Little Statement
This is a tiny little statement with deep meaning. If we don’t trust ourselves to do the right thing, we will not be fully cooperative with our brothers and sisters. We will think, subconsciously, that we may lead them astray. And well we may. We need to ask for guidance at every turn, and when that is assured, we can be cooperative without fear of making wrong decisions.
2 – Guidance
We do have the ability to know what we do, and we can do the right thing when we look to God as our guidance. Many of us have sought over long years to “do the right thing,” but we have remained unsure of ourselves. Have we really always made the right decisions?
3 – Mistakes
Probably not! But mistakes do not ultimately matter, for we have received Atonement. We are one with God, by the time that we have walked the whole pathway. We are both human and divine, and we know that we are on the right track.
4 – God Will Provide
Nobody needs to be fearful in his/her daily life. God will provide, and when we make the determination to “do the right thing,” we can rest assured that His guidance will be forthcoming.
As You know, guidance is one of my favorite topics. I welcome the advice that You give me. The only problem is when I wonder if the advice is coming from my ego and not from You. Then I can easily get confused.
Take the confusion from me today. Help me to discern exactly what Your will really is, and I do know that it is my will as well.
