Simple Grace - - Mood Index -

Dear child, when you feel the fog that comes from too much think­ing—too much time in the mind—it’s a sig­nal that you need to tune in more fully to your spirit and re­ceive a higher guid­ance.

“And I will pray the Fa­ther, and He will give you an­other Helper, that He may abide with you for­ever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world can­not re­ceive, be­cause it nei­ther sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.”

—Je­sus to the dis­ci­ples, John 14:16–17 NKJV

For­tu­nately, as My fol­lower, you have a sure way to ar­rive at your best de­ci­sion: Raise your aware­ness of the Holy Spirit to fully im­bibe the truth of any sit­u­a­tion. While the Spirit is al­ways with you, you must set­tle down the rac­ing thoughts and re­lease the phys­i­cal ten­sion that keeps you from drink­ing in all He has to of­fer.

One way to do this is to take a med­i­ta­tive walk. The rhythm of slow walk­ing can re­lease the men­tal and phys­i­cal con­stric­tion that keeps you from dis­cern­ing the Spirit’s truth. In this form of walk­ing, you want to keep your eyes in­ward rather than ex­am­in­ing your sur­round­ings, and so you might want to find a place that you can lit­er­ally walk in cir­cles—around your back­yard, around a track, around the block. Use the rhythm of your steps to help clear the fog and the stress so you can drink in the peace, joy, love and truth that My helper brings. Try this when­ever you need to un­knot the tangle of your thoughts.
