We can be inner-directed as opposed to outer-directed in this life. Outer-directed means that we look to people and situations to tell us how to be in this life. Inner-directed means that we learn to trust our own inner understanding and intuition to guide and direct our way in this life. We learn to listen to ourselves deeply and follow our own profound advice. It's useful at times to receive advice from others— but let's leave the final authority for our unfoldment up to our own inner convictions and understanding. We can develop the capacity to be inwardly centered in the midst of life's uncertainties, and we can make choices based on our awareness of what is appropriate and true for us. Stay centered within.
