God is always telling us which way to go, we hear her speaking to us too but most of the time, we don't like what we're hearing. The path to God leads upstream, against the current. Everything is a choice, God is always telling us the right way to go but God is also telling us the wrong way to go. Why would God do this to us?
In order for us to have the capability of evolution, we must have the freedom of choice, the freedom to listen to whichever voice we choose to guide us. Most people choose to take the path most traveled and so they float downstream with the rest of society, the "status quo" per se. The individual explorer does not listen to society, but to the voice within that speaks the greatest logic. It is the individualistic explorer that chooses to swim upstream against the current and in so doing becomes stronger than those who chose the easier path. We leave the cycle of life and death when we have become strong enough to live within an eternal community.
If you want to know, "am I following the right path"... ask yourself this question, "am I following the path of society with its crime, vice, poverty and ignorance or am I following the path of God which leads to divinity, true happiness and peace?" God puts obstacles in our path to overcome. It is our victory over these obstacles that makes us strong, which leads us in the direction of divinity. It is our failure to do so that leads us once again, back to the earth to repeat what we failed to overcome in our last.
Eventually all of us will be together in Paradise and we will go on to accomplish farther reaching objectives. It's not about if we will obtain divinity but when we choose it. Let this be your last life on the earth. You know what to do, you hear God telling you the right path and you hear God telling you the wrong path. So.....which voice do you listen to?
I wish everyone the very best on their journey...
