“The human mind does not well stand the conflict of double allegiance.  It is a severe strain on the soul to undergo the experience of an effort to serve both good and evil.  The supremely happy and efficiently unified mind is the one wholly dedicated to the doing of the will of the Father in heaven.”  [UB 133:7:12]

Thought Adjuster: “Unlike animals, human beings are spiritual beings who experience inner turmoil when they pursue morally conflicting agendas.  Ambition devoid of moral values is toxic to the soul, as it clips its wings.

Inspiration comes from Spirit.  It is the inner guidance that ever points to the better way in times of turmoil and insecurity. After consulting with your inner Informant, you are in a better position for making judicious decisions, having weighed out the pros and cons of your predicament. 

By acting impulsively despite the cautioning of reason, you end up inflicting a painful blow to your self-respect and issuing yourself a dishonorable discharge, since you betrayed your higher self.

One could liken the Father’s will to a detailed and reliable owner’s manual that vouches for the entire creation's smooth operation, as he conceived everything intelligently and purposefully.  The Father is in the cosmic service industry—a highly efficient undertaking where operational wastes and losses are kept at a bare minimum.  If it were for the Father, there would not be any wastes at all.  However, because he made the fulfillment of his vision co-dependent on the free will decisions of imperfect creatures, there is room for human error—and for emergency countermeasures.

Those who are at peace with themselves operate optimally.  It is in the acquirement of inner peace that lies your success.  It is the reason why Jesus preserved his peace of mind and heart at all costs—always opting to implement the steadfast will of Spirit while resisting the fleeting urges of the flesh.”
