Whats that Gut Feeling ya got and what does it mean?

To experience and express the power of trust, there is no easy way out. There is always a better way! When your back is against the wall, do not be tempted to take the easy way out. Avoid taking the short cut. Never allow the pressure of the moment to force you to do something that is dishonest or dishonorable. Before you strike out in terror or anger, call for the strength, energy and presence of mind to do what is best for everyone involved including you. No matter what happens to you, you will be better off if you look for a better way of doing things. Trust that no matter what stands before you, you can handle it by taking the high road.

The high road is any action taken or any word spoken with the intention of restoring peace, invoking healing or advancing love. It can be difficult to keep your eye on the road when you feel like you are being dishonored or harmed in some way. Fear can also make you lose sight of the road—the fear of being abandoned, rejected or discovered. How you respond when you are faced with one of these fears is understandable. Unfortunately, in the universe, it may not be excusable.

When you are stressed, pressured or simply afraid, it is easy to be lured into being dishonest. If you are angry, it is understandable that you would want to strike out. In these situations, you may feel that a lie will save you and chances are you will consider telling the lie. There is always a better way. When the boundaries of what is good, honest, loving and harmonious are deliberately trespassed, there may be hell to pay. Look for the high road. Trust yourself enough to refuse to do anything that will not create or support peace, healing and love.
