COURAGE MONTH: DAY 31: “In every crisis, doubt or confusion, take the higher path – the path of compassion, courage, understanding and love.”― Amit Ray

Not sure about “crisis, doubt or confusion” but the rest is totally true for me. I do not know of any situation where we are doing our best by ignoring the highest possible way of believing and behaving.

Ego tells us to take shortcuts, cheat when we can, lie if we want, steal and destroy what we must. I do not know of any situation where that fearful voice is helpful.

I have been in situations where not only my own Ego’s voice, but the voice of someone who is with me tells me to do something other than what I know is right. I have no hesitation, although I understand why that person or persons say what they do. I know what I have been taught since early life, there is no path but the high path. There is nothing to do but the right thing.

I have never regretted taking the right path. Never. But I have had regrets for years when I did not. That is the only test I need to take to see what to do when I pretend I don’t know. I always know. Because I have learned to sit with my soul and the answers always come. Always.
