Inner Guidance

As I meditated this morning, the thought came to me, that when we are connected to Divine Will, we plug into a source of wisdom, which serves as our inner guidance. The more we are connected, the more this guidance serves us.

In the Bhagavad Gita, there are 4 paths to God: The Yoga of Wisdom, of Devotion, of Action, and Meditation. Each one is unique and important in its own right.

There is much that we can do to cultivate this inner wisdom or guidance, but the most important thing we can do is to give ourselves the time to rest in God in the practice of meditation. The more we sit, and dedicate our time to this path, the less we tend to err or avoid opportunities where we are misguided or ruled by human will rather than Divine Will.

Paramahansa Yogananda, in the spiritual reading for the day, notes that the more we are attuned to Divine Will, the more we avoid instances of misery.

Several times in the last couple of weeks, wisdom has been cited to me as an important attribute to cultivate, and one which my practice and experiences are taking me much deeper into.

May this day provide opportunities to cultivate the wisdom that comes from aligning with Divine Will - that fortified, we may avoid the conflicts of human life that can try and even erode the beacon of inner guidance.
