I have three questions for you:
Do you make decisions based upon what you hear from God or from what you are hear from other people?
Where do you turn for guidance first, to other people and their personal opinion or to the wisdom of divine Mind?
Do you think for yourself or do you allow others to think for you?
These questions are important to ask and answer honestly, because they reveal what kind of influences are at work in your thought.
To make the best decision, your thought must be under the influence of the one Mind that always guides you aright. But if you’re in the habit of consulting other people’s personal opinion and beliefs first, you’re likely not tuning into God’s direction. Personal opinion and spiritual truth are often at odds with each other.
So, be honest. Are you listening to God’s voice of Wisdom or to other people’s personal opinions?
If you ever get confused and frustrated, it’s a sure sign you’re listening to opinion and not to the voice of Truth.
Other people often have good ideas and inspirations to share and it can be wise to consider their position at times. But those opinions can also be crammed with limiting beliefs, subtle fears and misguided notions that can wreak havoc on your well-being if followed. So, be sure to go to God first before making any final decision.
Truth will sort out the right from the wrong and keep your mental feet planted on a progressive path.
God always know best.
