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 has a peaceful or positively charged energy or feel to it.
Ego drains you, fills you with fear and negativity.

Today’s pairing certainly holds no secrets. Perhaps the only caveat it that ego can masquerade itself quite well as peaceful and positively charged. I dare say, we see this far too much in a world where the idea of “being spiritual” has been hijacked by the ego. You know it when you see it…everything is sunny, sunny, sunny even as the teeth break from clenching the jaw with emotions one “no longer has”. So it seems to me, ego can just as well fill us with over-confidence and and the muddy waters of denial.

Once we get through resistance, or once I do anyway, I begin to feel genuine peace again, not one that comes over me like a white cloud but one that reappears like the sky. It had always been there–just obscured. And even if I don’t know the answer to my immediate questions, it no longer matters. All is right with the world.
