When You Don't Know What To Do

I remember once, many years ago, I asked my husband, Rav Berg, "What do you do when you don’t know what to do?"

“Don’t do anything,” he answered. "Let the situation evolve around you, and that will give you your answer. If you are really asking, then you will get the answer."

Let’s say you find yourself in a situation where you really don’t know what to do. Perhaps you need to address someone, to decide if to fire someone, to sever a partnership or break off a relationship. Moreover, you are worried about hurting the other person. Whatever your concern, connect yourself to the Light and say, "God, this is in Your hands."

Then just leave it. Don’t do anything else. Let the situation evolve around you.

Essential to this strategy, however, is a firm conviction that “I am with the energy of the Light”—a certainty that the Light of the Creator is with us in all pieces and aspects of our life. When we have this certainty, if the person we must deal with is negative for us, he’ll leave. We won’t have to leave him. He will be forced to move to another country, to take another job.

And we won’t have to do that or take any action; the Light will do it for us. But if we don’t have the this conviction--this certainty that the Light is there for us—then we might very well find ourselves constantly mired in space of confusion.
