guidance quotes

Show me the path where I should go, O Lord; point out the right road for me to walk. Psalm 25:4
- We all need God’s guidance in our lives.
- We sing: ‘Guide me O thou great Jehovah.’
- It is because we need God’s leading and guidance in our lives.
- The joy is that we can ask God to do just that for us!
PRAYER: Lord, I pray that You will lead me and guide me and show me which way I need to go. Amen.

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction

The Great I AM is the electrical, unifying force that not only runs your physical body, but also generates and sustains the entire cosmos.”  ~Anon I mus

If it no longer resonates with my heart, spirit, mind and soul, I let it go.

“Have the courage to look inward and surrender to the total freedom of your nameless and formless ‘I AM’ essence beyond space and time.

You are the ever-present, universal life-energy, not bound to the narrow opinions of others or the repressive chains of social/cultural conditioning. 

No external convention, organization, scientific or religious dogma, nation, political affiliation or man-made tradition has the power to define or confine you.”   -Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)

Istikhara is a means of seeking guidance from Allah when faced with making a decision that one may be unsure about. “Should I, or shouldn’t I.. Will I regret making this decision?”. Who better to ask than Allah? You will definitely know that you have made the right decision when the direction has come from Allah Almighty as a result of your supplications.

The description of Salaat al-Istikhaarah was reported by Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah al-Salami (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said:

“The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to teach his companions to make istikhaarah in all things, just as he used to teach them soorahs from the Qur’aan.

 He said: ‘If any one of you is concerned about a decision he has to make, then let him pray two rak’ahs of non-obligatory prayer, then say:

 Allaahumma inni astakheeruka bi ‘ilmika wa astaqdiruka bi qudratika wa as’aluka min fadlika, fa innaka taqdiru wa laa aqdir, wa ta’lamu wa laa a’lam, wa anta ‘allaam al-ghuyoob. Allaahumma fa in kunta ta’lamu haadha’l-amra (then the matter should be mentioned by name) khayran li fi ‘aajil amri wa aajilihi (or: fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri) faqdurhu li wa yassirhu li thumma baarik li fihi. Allaahumma wa in kunta ta’lamu annahu sharrun li fi deeni wa ma’aashi wa ‘aaqibati amri (or: fi ‘aajili amri wa aajilihi) fasrifni ‘anhu [wasrafhu ‘anni] waqdur li al-khayr haythu kaana thumma radini bihi

(O Allaah, I seek Your guidance [in making a choice] by virtue of Your knowledge, and I seek ability by virtue of Your power, and I ask You of Your great bounty. You have power, I have none. And You know, I know not. You are the Knower of hidden things. O Allaah, if in Your knowledge, this matter (then it should be mentioned by name) is good for me both in this world and in the Hereafter (or: in my religion, my livelihood and my affairs), then ordain it for me, make it easy for me, and bless it for me. And if in Your knowledge it is bad for me and for my religion, my livelihood and my affairs (or: for me both in this world and the next), then turn me away from it, [and turn it away from me], and ordain for me the good wherever it may be and make me pleased with it.”

(Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6841; similar reports are also recorded by al-Tirmidhi, al-Nisaa’i, Abu Dawood, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad).  

I am the weather system.  I am the stars in the sky. I am the ground, grass and ocean floor. I am the wildlife and human population. I am the planets, the solar systems and beyond. I am the never ending dark matter. I am every idea, every truth and every atom.
Which is why they call me Infinite.
I am also sensitive to your emotions, I hear you before you speak. I know the right time, place and person. I know the best way for all involved. I know the easiest, fastest way.
Which is why they call me Intelligence.
Your job? 
To trust I can do everything you’ve ever imagined, through you.

“Cultivating spiritual awareness is an empowering act of Self-love that helps us to remain deeply rooted in our wakefulness; free from the manipulative, hypnotic trance of the collective ego-matrix (mass consumerism,  status quo, power and social conditioning).”  -Anon I mus (Spiritually Anonymous)
