Each of us has a spiritual navigation system that, if we will listen to it and follow its guidance, will correct us when we get off course. At times we may become so annoyed with the voice of correction that we silence it or ignore it. That doesn’t affect the system; it simply sends us a new course and quietly guides us on. But, if we refuse to follow the system for long periods of time, the corrections become more involved, more difficult, but not impossible.
The spiritual navigation system can be a number of things. For instance, it can be a traditional religious belief system. This has worked for multitudes and continues to function for most people. But, it can also be an inner guidance system. A soft voice that speaks to us in the stillness. It can also be our conscience guiding us to keep away from certain things or certain decisions because they could be bad for us and take us off course. It could be our intuition, that sixth sense that goes a little further than the conscience by not only steering us away from the bad but by also directing us toward the good.
In a perfect world, all of these things—religion, meditation, conscience, and intuition—work together to provide the greatest guidance system possible.
