Ooooh, I thought, flaky. This was the first time I had heard of this method of discernment. I then thought of God’s will as a static treasure to dig for and discern.
“Regardless of what is sensible, and regardless of what you think you ought to do, which of the courses ahead makes you feel alive, makes your heart open wider, makes you feel hopeful and as if the future is opening up and not closing down? That is the route you should go.”
You follow the course of “consolation”, not the one of “disconsolation” because that’s the one the Spirit has guided you into.
It helps to have an experienced prayer guide when doing this.
