Making Decisions

People usually make impulsive decisions and take shortcuts while stressed out. A 16th-century Catholic mystic, Ignatius, provides us with some methods of discernment and decision-making, which are still relevant today.

  • Relying on Reason and Feelings: It’s important to use your logic and reasoning while also factoring in the feelings(head and heart both).
  • Imaginative Reflection: Taking on a problem with different imaginative twists, like what would we do if we were dying, or if we were conversing with God or someone we trust, leads to clarity and perspective.
  • Check Our Emotions: If the decision provides us with peace, freedom, joy, love or compassion, then it is the right one.
