How do you guide your own steps?

In other word, how do you, my fellows, know what you said or did was right and not wrong?

I study Christian literature, but that’s not enough. I compare my thinking with Dad’s wisdom at home. Other than that, I have no one to guide my steps and take me to the right direction.

I am indecisive about what approach to take. A well-balanced speech (suitable for everyone), or speech with many good points.

You see, the mental attitude can be offensive, defensive, swing in between, or stay in the center – I have so many options and I am not sure which is the best.

Must I know the result only after trial-and-error when damages have been done?

How do you guide your own steps? Which approach do you prefer?


I have a low percentage of reader and zero replies for this topic.

Don’t worry, I know what to do. Instead of making striking remarks in my speech, I decide to use the one-speech-fits-all style. Being tactful and well-balanced in choosing proper words when making comments is my preference.

Have a good day, everybody!

I like ur question I just don’t like talking about it too much lol I prefer hearing people talk about it. I think books help anf at the end of the day it does come down to experience n trial n error making horrible mistakes so that ur brain has an avoidant memory of what was a bad idea.

In spiritual teachings there is no right or wrong . What is is . Life is pure learning expirience

I think not all spiritual teachings without right or wrong. However, I agree that we have a life-long learning experience.

Whether a decision was right or wrong you cannot tell until death. What you thought was right at the time might later turn out to be wrong or vice versa. All you can do is to be as honest as possible at every decision you make. I try to have as broad a view as possible by learning history, etc. to know what kind of decisions people have made at what kind of situations and what consequences they had in the end. Sometimes big mistakes made me go into a better direction.

It’s a good question Plumber.

In my opinion is comes down to your intention.

If you intend to hurt someone, and follow it through with actions that succeed in hurting that person, and maybe feel pleased with yourself afterwards for doing it, then you’ve done wrong.

Likewise, if you intend to help someone, and follow it through with actions that help that person, then you’ve done right.

But that’s just my view of what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong…’ I’m sure others will disagree.
