Discernment

The biggest lesson I have learned in my life is to always use discernment when making decisions before just following the crowd. There is so much information out there these days about spirituality, technology, different “movements” etc etc. Before doing what you think you “should” do or believing that everyone is doing it so it must be right, stop, go within and listen to your own voice. Ask yourself these questions: 

  • Why would I want to do this or believe this?

  • Does this fit with my own values and morals?

  • Does this feel good to me? If it doesn't then don't do it. Your body will tell you if it aligns with you.

 

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.”

— Buddha
