Lately everyone seems to be talking about certainty. Certainty in making decisions or certainty in what comes next? Since when is anything certain? We walk out into the street and we look both ways before we take a step. We take a step because we are certain that our senses are giving us correct environmental feedback. But what if they weren’t? Would we still be certain? Or would we doubt what we sensed and felt?
The problem with certainty is the uncertainty principle. “In quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle states precise inequalities that constrain certain pairs of physical properties, suchas measuring the present position while determining future momentum; both cannot be simultaneously done to arbitrarily high precision. That is, the more precisely one property is measured, the less precisely the other can be controlled or determined (Wikipedia.com).” In other words, there is a risk associated with any movement that things might not turn out the way you expect.
When you depend on your limited senses, constrained beliefs and the automatic survival mechanism of your ego, you are moving through your environment with a ‘certain’ amount of risk. How do you minimize that risk? Simply by making the time each day to go within and listen to the guidance of the still small voice of God guiding and directing you along the way.
You are His child and He will guide your steps when you allow Him to do so. It is upto you to choose wisely in being certain. The only thing that is completely certain is God’s love for you and all humankind.
How do you ensure that you will receive Divine guidance? Is the voice in your head your ego or the Spirit of God? How can you tell? Actually, it’s quite simple. If the voice tells you to do something that is beneficial for you and you alone AND at the expense of someone else’s peace, then it is from your ego. If the voice in your head tells you to do something that is beneficial for you and everyone else and NOT at the expense of anyone else’s peace, then it is from the Spirit of God.
The Divine always leads us on the pathway of Divine love and NOT on the pathway of separation, derision and acrimony. Those expressions are from the ego and the ego alone trying to elevate itself at the expense of others. Be true to yourself and to others. Be that which you know in ‘certainty’ and NEVER worry about what appears to be uncertain. The Divine will handle the how when you handle the what. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
