By definition discernment is: “the quality of being able to perceive, grasp, and comprehend what is obscure”. On the mental level, it is being able to see the intricacies and nuances of a complex situation and make an appropriate decision. When we add the spiritual dimension, we begin to see the spiritual as well as the rational aspects and consequences of the situation. It is the role of the Higher Self to view all the information and then guide the mind into the right decision for ourselves, for this beautiful world in which we live, and for every soul we meet on the path to life.
