I have a familiar story of leaving my guidance when I moved to Wisconsin.
I also see how the turnaround is true: I followed my guidance.
(a) I followed my fears and beliefs. I followed my ideas of loyalty, my ideas of marriage.
(b) I followed a deeper guidance. What happened was God’s will, since it happened.
I see there are three levels or facets to this, for me now:
(i) Following my beliefs and fears. Following unexamined images and thoughts.
(ii) Following my guidance, my heart. Living from integrity.
(iii) Noticing that what is, is God’s will. Any combination of (i) and (ii) is God’s will. And if God is good, if God is love, then what is, is good. What is, is love.
