A businessman was confused about how to solve several pressing problems he faced at work. There were many factors to consider before deciding upon a course of action. Which direction to go was unclear. And he felt ignorant about vital facts he needed to understand before deciding what to do.
I shared with him that he didn’t have to figure this out alone. We discussed how there is one Mind over all of creation and that this one Mind understands every detail of every project before him. This truth, understood, would clear up the fogginess in his thought.
I thought about the Mt. Rainier National Forest near where I live. It’s a huge vast acreage, with millions of trees, flowers, plants and countless animals roaming its interior. Yet, the one Mind knows every tree, every fern, every creature, large and small, and keeps track of them all.
In the same way that Mind knows every detail of His forest, God knew every detail of the projects facing this man. God knew what to do, how to do it, when to do it, and how to bring about the best outcome. As God’s businessman, this man reflected what God knew. So, every detail that this man needed to know was present in his Mind already, and he had spiritual sense to discern it.
The businessman quickly found peace, went to work, and had good results to report later.
There is no fogginess in divine Mind. It’s the human mind that gets foggy when it tries to do God’s job. The remedy is to honor the one Mind and follow its direction. With God in the lead, thought will clear and the correct path to take will become obvious.
“Listen as Wisdom calls out! Hear as understanding raises her voice!
“My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge” Proverbs 8:1,9, NLT.
