133 Spiritual Discernment

SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT

I was under the impression only a special or holy person could receive the gift of Spiritual Discernment. Perhaps a wise person with the judgment capacity equivalent to sainthood. Today I believe it is something special but not above and beyond the human condition.

This morning I had a realization that Spiritual Discernment is not a judgment I make, but an intuitive awakening. When I am working with a new member, no matter what they have done or not done I have no need to forgive them. In fact, I have not judged them in a way that calls for guilt and punishment. Spiritual Discernment is beyond appearances and facts it is a knowing. My experience tells me the big Boss has a purpose for everyone and everything. I don’t need to know what that purpose is. I just know it is and I accept it as is.

Questions:

1. What does Spiritual Discernment mean to you?

2. Can you give an example of when you realized that you were not judging someone?

Al Kohallek asked Lou-is if he could begin his program again what would he do differently? He said - "If I had it to do over, I would ask more of God, more of the program, and more of myself sooner."
