Alone, or rather believing that we are alone, we are unable to make consistently good decisions. Perception is too often colored by the past, so it is difficult to recognize what is going on. The physical senses don’t help us here because they also are tied to past events. Surrendering the ego’s “know it all” attitude we can access a “knowing” that is greater than our individual opinion. That surrender also opens our minds to what others say. Anytime we collectively surrender our individual agenda we become more able the make decisions that are for the common welfare. The ability to judge well comes from not trusting the ego’s judgement and allowing answers to arise naturally from within. So, good judgement comes from neutral perception coupled with the desire to see correctly. We obtain proper direction from spirit when empathy, compassion and understanding come together in love.
