Doubt vs. Discernment

As I child I was taught to not doubt my religion, and that doubt was the devil tempting to lead me astray. What I didn’t understand then was the difference between doubt and discernment.

Doubt is based in fear while discernment is based in love.

Doubt is so much more than temptation. Doubt blocks us from discovering our own truth and divine greatness. Discernment is our higher-self, our loving spirit, teaching us how to think outside the confines of fear. In that regard, doubt then is from the devil, just not the way it has been taught to so many of us.

Doubt is a deception.

If deception is a temptation away from our full and true capability, then one can see how it could be construed as being from the devil. Doubt can be used to serve a particular religion, and it can also be used against us in our own individual spiritual evolution. Doubt comes from the illusion of fear and darkness where discernment comes from the light of truth.

Doubt keeps human beings stuck where they are, while discernment gives them the courage to move forward.

Question everything, discern everything, even the doubting voice coming from your own mind, and especially the doubt placed upon you by others.
