"Your decisions will master you, whichever direction they take." MARY BAKER EDDY

How do you make big decisions? Do you discuss all the options with family and friends? Make long lists of pros and cons? Research all the ramifications?

While these may be useful steps, they may not bring the clarity necessary to make a confident decision. What's needed is spiritual light.

We hope you'll find that the prayers, spiritual study, and healing experiences authors share in this column help bring the right choices and truly satisfying decisions to light in your life.

Take a risk?

Do you like gambling? The adrenaline rush? Just the fun of it? Time to escape?

I don't have anything against having a good time. But there's something troubling about gambling. Taking a risk and winning makes you feel privileged or lucky. Taking a risk and winning looks as attractive as cheese in a mousetrap when you buy into that feeling of being lucky above others. It's when you discover you want or even crave the win more than anything else that proves you've been trapped. You end up losing perspective without realizing it.
