The Christ in counseling

There's a massive trend toward counseling today. The proliferation of counselors—job, career, education, marriage, financial, insurance, health—might lead one to feel that he has no insight into his own life.

Actually just the opposite is true. The real man of God's creating—the genuine selfhood of your loved ones and you, of all—is always one with the Father. Christ is his inward voice and guide. Man needs no information or advice from outside his own Christly consciousness.

Much of the counseling generously offered today derives from psychology, from the study of human consciousness and the behavioral sciences. Should one, then, strive to shun all human counseling—even though that may be a challenge—or is there another way, a productive way of dealing with it?
