I have a manageability factor of one. I hate to be told what to do. Maybe the sixty jobs and seven careers I have had, may have something to do with this character defect. I don’t accept guidance until I am sure I am lost. Guidance according to Dictionary.com is the act or function of guiding; leadership; direction. Most of the guidance I was given before my current transformation directed me against my ultimate potential, therefore guiding me toward negative results. I eventually became self-sufficient and close-minded.
When my life came crashing down, the realization of my self-guidance being the cause of all my failure, became evident. I leaned heavily on the guidance of positive people around me. It was apparent that they too had survived similar situations to mine. It was at that point my life began to improve. Eventually the guidance I was receiving was directing me more toward their way of life instead of my heart’s desire and dreams. I finally asked them where they got their guidance and most of them received their guidance from God.
I began praying and meditating daily, which has developed into constant conscious contact with God. I the process of developing a relationship with God I had to fire God as my custodian, constantly cleaning up my life, and rehired God as my scout. It is this change of relationship that taught me to accept guidance. I pay attention to my life and live in the NOW. In living in the now I “hear/see” God. I feel God nudge me if I don’t try to “make” my life and merely “let” it. If you want to find the source of perfect guidance remember…

What degree of wholeness are you? Wholeness, according to Dictionary.com, has many meanings. The definition I have chosen is pertaining to all aspects of human nature, especially one’s physical, intellectual and spiritual development. When I began my current journey I was beyond broken, I was shattered. I was buried in denial and had settled into believing I was right and the world was wrong. To protect my fragile ego, I would fight any opinion that didn’t conform to the imaginary world I lived in.
As I begin to see and understand my character defects I realize how different we all are and how much we are also so much alike. I also realize we are each already whole lacking understanding. We are all made in God’s image and likeness, yet resemble different aspects of God. The Bible says we should not judge and yet we do. It is our judgment and not each other that is flawed. I continue to evaluate my thinking process and all the people who have been a part of its manufacture looking for the judgment. When I remove my judgment, I see all mankind as perfect, which I am a part, improving my esteem.
Parents, schools, sundry religions; in fact all aspects of my material environment have been a part of creating my misunderstanding of my perfection and wholeness. Jesus said, “Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” We all must find our truth and it must set us free or it is not our truth. I have found my truth and it has set me free. I also help others find their truth, although it may be dramatically different from mine. We must find our truth to become whole. If you want to know the best source of this truth remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
