Don’t obsess over right and wrong decisions. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.
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. This isn’t a correct assumption because the universe is flexible- it adapts to every decision you make. Right and wrong are only mental constructs.
Go beyond risks. You can go beyond risks by knowing that there is infinite intelligence at work in the hidden dimension of your life. At the level of this intelligence your choices are always supported. The point of looking at risks would be to see if your course of action is reasonable. People who can assess their choices at the deeper level of awareness are aligning themselves with infinite intelligence, and thus they have a greater chance for success than does someone who crunches the numbers.
It is hard to let go when you don’t know if you have made the right choice in the first place. Doubt lingers and ties us to the past. It is important not to make critical decisions when you are in doubt.
The universe supports actions once they are begun, which is the same as saying that once you take a direction, you are setting a mechanism in motion that is very hard to reverse. When you are in doubt, however, you put the universe on hold for a while. It favors no particular direction.
Keep in mind that you are the choice-maker, which means that who you are is far more than any single choice you have ever made or ever will make.
