Making Wise Mind Decisions

Fear and guilt come from the human part of the psyche called the emotional mind. They incorporate emotion and compassion, but lack logic and reason. They feel overwhelming and urgent and seek immediate gratification. When our decisions come from a place of fear or guilt rather than a place of inner wisdom, then we risk harming ourselves or another human being, therefore disrupting God’s greater plan. Fear and guilt are not love. 

Opinion and judgment come from the human part of the psyche called the reasonable mind. They incorporate logic and reason, but lack emotion and compassion. They feel shameful and critical and cause rejection and divide. When our decisions come from a place of opinion and judgment rather than a place of inner wisdom, then we risk harming ourselves or another human being, therefore disrupting God’s greater plan. Opinion and judgment are not love.

When we bring both the emotional mind and the reasonable mind together, we meet at the heart and encounter wise mind or inner wisdom. True love comes from inner wisdom. Inner wisdom comes from God and God is love.
