Day 24: Next Steps

An ongoing personal exploration of Divine Guidance and distinguishing between the voice of fear and the voice of love reflecting on the article, How to Distinguish Between Divine Guidance and Fear/Ego/Imagination, on Sir Froggie’s PositiveNews Network .

Today’s pairing is:

Divine Guidance helps you see beyond your circumstances.  It gives you a vision you know in your heart of hearts is attainable even if you’re not sure how or why yet.  Divine Guidance credits you for the small things you do as well as the medium and large.
Ego tries to block you from seeing beyond your circumstances or gives you an unattainable grandiose goal.  It tries to either discredit you and your goals or use them in a way to put yourself or others down.

I certainly get how ego veils the simple with confusion. I see how it makes the “next steps” seem even bigger and more impossible than they are…maybe even by obscuring the actual smaller “next step”. It throws up rules and regulations and fears of consequences to keep us in line.

The thing about Divine guidance is that, even when I’m not sure what to do to make a particular vision a reality, I feel happier just thinking about it and therefore happier about everything. I feel at peace and accepting of what is.

Ego makes the circumstances seem so dire and the situation seem so dark, but Divine guidance is full of possibility and opportunity.
