What about those times when we don’t know what is right? We seek advice from family, friends, religious authorities, and even civil authorities, but we remain uncertain. Our hearts are also perplexed because we envision different scenarios playing out in every possible decision we might make, and we can’t guarantee which path would yield the best result.
At times the right thing to do is simply the next thing to do. This might include deciding not to decide — at least temporarily. Buying time can allow our vision to focus. Not all decisions have right or wrong consequences. If we choose a path, how will it affect me, my friends, and our lives? What about another path? One solution is to simply take a step down one of the paths and see how it feels. If you sense a level of comfort, then take another step, and then another.
If the path feels uncertain, step back and try another one. It could be neither path is wrong, only that each one will have certain advantages and disadvantages. One may be a shorter route to your goal but not be as pleasurable along the way. Another may be more enjoyable but might take longer. The right thing is often simply the next thing. Take a step, and see where it leads.
