Today, we are overwhelmed with choices. Yet our limited minds find it difficult to know what is best for us, and that leads to a constant underlying worry that we are not doing the best thing we could be doing, and questions such as: am I working at the right place?; am I with the right partner?; am I using my time in the best possible way?; etc.
The shadow of ‘opportunity cost’ is constantly lurking in the back of the mind.
Knowing the above, what is the best way to make decisions? The answer varies depending on your progress on the spiritual path:
All decisions you previously made should be focused towards this third and final aim, i.e. surrendering all decisions to God. This happens naturally when you know that peace and happiness do not come from the material world. In fact, the more spiritual freedom you have, the less material freedom you need. When every aspect of your life is surrendered in this way, the physical realm becomes a very flexible, ever-changing playground in which you observe Being endlessly manifesting Itself in a wide variety of forms.
