How can you be sure that you are acting in God’s way and not that of the sense consciousness?
You can tell by looking at the way you are handling the situation. Are you standing on the roof about to jump or are you sitting in the temple waiting for that still, small voice?
Do you feel that there is no answer; no way out?
Or do you know that even though the answer might not be readily apparent, it is there waiting for you to discover it?
The sense consciousness would have you jump off the temple roof; destroying the possibility of harmony and healing.
On the other hand, God’s way is the way of life, not of destruction. With God, there is always an answer, always a solution, always a path of fulfillment.
So why jump off the temple roof when you can take the stairs safely to the ground?
