One of my daily meditation books talked about a subject near and dear to my heart:
“There are two things that we must have if we are going to change our way of life. One is faith, the confidence in things unseen, the fundamental goodness and purpose in the universe. THe other is obedience: that is, living according to our faith, living each day as we believe that God wants us to live, with gratitude, humility, honesty, purity, uselfishness, and love.”
I have said that we need to follow our intuition, even when it is telling us to make the hard decision or more difficult path. But, I like the way this words it – an obedience to living as God (the universe, Karma, fate, whatever you believe in) would want us to live.
Do the right things for the right reasons.
This is my truth, by the way. When I have faith in my soul and I am doing my best to walk on the right path – doors open all over for me. I don’t have to direct everything in my life. There is a flow and I just show up. For somebody that has been surrounded by kaos and anxiety, much of my life, it is a very nice place to be.
