Trapped In-decision

Where is the point where we seek to answer ourselves? How do we decide? Every day we seek to turn right or left, judging matters small and large by the qualities that they present. BUT... Are the answers that we seek always one thing or another; either or; this way or that? The Answer to this question, as evidenced by experience alone is absolutely NO. In fact, making a life decision, or deciding moral issues can be dangerous when we use YES/NO judgement. Why is this so? The reason is simple. Certain ways of thinking actually limit or narrow our available understanding so much that the correct answer, the Truth, cannot be contained within them. For example, do you ever feel that your decisions are incomplete; that they are leading you in the wrong direction? Here is why...

The first problem is a problem of perspective. Immediately we need to choose! What now! One or two! Yes or no! We are swallowed by NOW; by importance; by decision, and forget that we have a God who contains all truth and understanding and that is readily available; in HIS time; to help us. However, somehow matters have quickly shifted away from HIM, and we seem to be pressured, or locked if you will, into decisions on our own. We've all experienced situations that and people who want an answer right away. We are being forced into a corner; forced to forget God. We are squeezing away the very, the only source of real insight and direction. It is terrible, but in many ways we are being misguided or trapped INside Decision.

So what can we do to break free of the judgement patterns of thought that force us into error? The simple answer is to back away and seek God in the moments where we feel uncertain, tried, and pressured to decide. But this is a practiced habit. It actually requires the strength not to act; strength that we alone do not always possess. Ironically, the power needed, the strength of true inner freedom comes from slavery; the slavery of being united within God; who already controls it all. So when we let go of being controlled by other forces, we release ourselves into God's control where he is already waiting with love, guidance, and peace. The strength to begin this change comes from a letting go which is a receiving; a receiving of Christ presented to us through the Holy Spirit of God. It is Christ's Spirit working within us that moves us into realignment so that we do not fall into the traps of thought that hinder us. Along this inner journey we slowly become familiar with circumstances in life and areas of belief that have controlled us; many times realizing that they have had sweeping, powerful negative consequences.

You can ask, 'But what kind of belief can force us into division and struggle within?' A giant among these polarizing questions and beliefs of judgement is one that nearly every public school adolescent, college student, and television nature program viewer is familiar with. It is the belief question of 'Genetics or Environment?'. This question has developed among intellectuals who have chosen to answer the mysteries of human identity by themselves in the name of science. However, what they are really doing is being trapped in language and judgement-thought to reevaluate existence and creation itself. The question itself is bipolar and does not allow for an outside answer. The individual is trapped into deciding whether the 'DESIGN of the human body' or, ironically, 'Outside Forces' are the cause of physical being and human behavior. No room for God is built into this identity question of giant consequence to human spirituality and faith. Ask yourself, 'Have you been trapped into a corner of confusion by textbooks, teachers, and programs by this question?' Have your loved children and precious sons and daughters of God raised in your home been asked this question in biology classes or in a psychology lecture of a college hall? How can they answer it? They cannot...

Yes,the easy answer to the riddle of 'genetics or environment' is not to answer at all. We cannot answer within the framework of this question without trading Providence for science, Creation for evolution, and our own infinite worth as Living Images of God for the fabricated identity as physical bodies tied to predetermined, automatic basic animalistic desires. But how can one single question change our entire moral direction, identity, spiritual focus, and religion? The real answer is: the process of thought that it forces decision upon, the judgement of the soul within the heart, changes us within! Yes; thinking is spiritual! Wow, it isn't genetics at all; or the mysterious force called environment; oooh ! You mean, 'our hearts contain beliefs that partly determine our behavior?' Yes... We are being trapped Indecision...

This has been revealed to you and many others as well by Grace. Many will not understand this for a very long time but in reading it will absorb it into their subconscious's and as they grow in their "walk" will eventually have the proverbial aha' moment, while some never will. And even those who know this still will fail more than succeed at it but never give up because of the taste of Hope they have experienced. Without Him, we are incapable of any good, or good decisions period. No amount of intellect or higher learning will ever change that fact.
Good post, really made me work in an area i love.
