People always want to have direction. Much of why we seek spirituality and access to the Divine is to have that sense of guidance…some purposeful direction we are led to, which will ultimately lead to our happiness, serenity, and/or divine life purpose. People often ask me, “how will I know?” In other words, how do we know when we are being divinely led, or if it is just our own logic that directs us to a particular place or in a specific direction. My spiritual answer is….listen to the still, small voice within you. That voice of intuition. Intuition actually means “guidance from within.” When we pray, we are calling God….when our intuition speaks, it is Him answering us. It is that deep knowing from within…that when we clear our minds, quiet the clutter and still the voices and opinions of others around us, moves us. How do we know? We just do. It’s really that simple….often, if not most times, we do not know why one house feels right, versus an equally nice choice as we are looking for our new home.
We just feel it, standing in various parts of the house, “this is it.” We don’t know why one partner just feels right, even if our mind argues this person is not the most logical choice for partners….our heart moves in this direction, and we [if we are wise and spiritually awake] willingly follow, for it is always the heartpath, the guidance from deep within, that lead us to our destiny, our fate, our spiritual path. It takes courage….because many times the intuition is not logical or intellectually satisfying and often leads the person into confusion because their mind cannot fathom how this can be the right choice, or people argue that this doesn’t make any sense….but trust in the Heart. It will never lead you in the wrong direction….it may take a while to understand the lead, but it is our job to have Faith, and move in the direction we “feel,” not think, is the right one. For if it is our intuition speaking to us, then it is the right one…..Always.
”Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart ... Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”
"When the future hinges on the next words that are said,
don't let logic interfere, believe your heart instead."
~ Philip Robison
“The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.”
“We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart.”
“The difference between the mind and the heart? The mind tells you the smart thing to do, the heart tells you what you are going to do anyway.”
