Below is a quote from Abraham-Hicks,
It does not matter what path you take, but it does matter if the path you are taking is something that you are believing is appropriate. Nothing is more damaging to you than to do something that you believe is wrong.
Excerpted from the workshop in Monterey, CA on Tuesday, March 20th, 2001 # 543
On the surface, this daily affirmation seems quite simple: Do what you believe is right, and don’t do what you believe to be wrong. Those seem like very simple directions to a happy life, don’t they? But therein lies the rub — we humans often do what we know to be against our better interests.
Why is that, do you think? I have made bad decisions in almost every area of my life: the physical, the emotional, the mental, the medical, the pharmaceutical, the religical, (okay, I made that up.) But my wrong moves weren’t all made for the wrong reasons. Well, sometimes they were, but I didn’t plan them that way. I understood myself so little; I didn’t know that I didn’t know — I was tied up in the past and the tangle became worse each year.
I don’t mean to say that I never made bad choices on purpose. I certainly did, and most of them included drugs or sex or diabetes. I am not proud of myself for making these decisions. At the time, I guess they seemed not so terrible, and maybe some fun in my mostly un-fun life.
I guarantee you now: fun is not as important as happiness, and fun rarely lasted, when I chose unhealthy methods of seeking it. So there I was, calling more misery to myself every time I chose wrongly, against my own best interests.
And what is different now? I certainly still make bad choices — look back at how many times I apologized in this blog, over the last ten months. In virtually every instance, I reacted without thinking, as I used to when I was younger. But far more often, I make thoughtful decisions aimed at making my life more positive, more joyful, better in all regards. And I’m not doing too badly; I am a happier, more positive, woman, healthier in spirit and body than I used to be, in spite of blood tests. My thoughts, my imagination are both working in that joyous direction. And again from Abraham:
