“Do not fear…. do not be troubled…. do not falter…., for in every dark hour, at every crossroad in the forward struggle, the Spirit of Truth will always speak, saying, “This is the way.” [UB 383:02]
Thought Adjuster: “How can you be guided by the Spirit of Truth that is ever hovering in your field of consciousness? Or rather, what are the mental obstacles that dim Its light in your awareness?
“Light is light. What I mean by that is that, no matter how much cloud-cover may seem to have accumulated over your head, you KNOW for a fact that the sun is consistently shining above it, following its preordained route and providing the warmth that sustains the planetary life-forms.
“Whenever you go through a tremendous challenge—a test of faith—you feel like you are about to drown in the perceived darkness that seems to close up around you, robbing you from any remnant of hope and allowing many fears in disguise to take over the stage of your life and turn it into a tearjerker drama, rather than the celebration of life it is meant to be.
“Indeed, obsessing about your fears and keeping a ledger of your troubles without doing anything about them, prevent you from being receptive to the frank speaking of the Spirit of Truth. In your sorrow, you may be forgetting the most important thing: to ask for Its leadings so that It can reveal to you an operative roadmap—Its rescue mission from the abyss of your depression and despair.
“The Spirit of Truth objectively assesses your predicament and can, therefore, devise a workable action plan. However, it requires for you to drop your resistance and to stop interjecting your ‘but’ to Its suggestions, as they are watering down the power of Its leadings by keeping you in a helpless victim mentality.
“Be truthful with yourself first so that you can be receptive to the Spirit of Truth. If you solicit Its Input, do not slam the door of your consciousness in Its face! Rather, go within and listen. Take as long as needed for the fogginess to lift off your mind in order to get a clear and liberating idea of what your best options are. Indeed, the Spirit of Truth comes to liberate you from your anguished procrastination. It is a sure sign that you accurately identified Its input whenever the weight of your sorrows is lifted off your shoulder. It is now carrying your load with you, lightening it, making it bearable, thus allowing you to regain a bounce in your more determined steps.”
