Do What You Must, Then Listen and Trust

Last night, I was one of many volunteers at a church function at the Encinitas Community Center. Since I don’t have a car and the event was 2.7 miles from where I live, I asked three people if I could catch a ride with them. For various reasons, none of those options worked out.

Here’s where intuitive guidance came into play. I had a strong sense that I wasn’t supposed to put any more work into finding a ride, that if a ride was to be forthcoming it would come to me. I felt completely at peace with that guidance and made plans to walk to the event instead.

After working out the time and details of my walk, I went to my weekly volunteering shift at SRF Books & Gifts. Less than an hour before I was planning to leave to get ready, I ducked into the break room to have a quick snack. Deb, another volunteer was sitting at the break table. She casually asked, “Are you volunteering tonight too?” I looked at her and smiled; I had no idea she was volunteering that night or that she knew that I was. But I instantly knew that I was being presented with my ride. Sure enough, she was planning to leave for the event directly from the bookstore and was more than happy to let me ride along. I only live a block from the store so that would give me a chance to go home, eat dinner and still get to the event on time.

This isn’t the first time that something like this has happened, and I’m quite certain it won’t be the last. What I’ve learned is this: Try my best to make things happen up until the point when I sense that I should let things happen. It’s a fine line, but when I feel attuned with divine will, have pure intentions, and have peacefully accepted the alternative (in this case, walking), events never fail to unfold in the best possible way.

It’s taken quite a few years to get to this point, but I no longer question my intuitive guidance. I follow it immediately and completely, without hesitation. The result has always been the best possible outcome. My advice to you? Do what you must, then listen and trust, and you will end up feeling blessed instead of stressed.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.



SiSe_fullcover_final.inddPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese.

    Thanks, Phil. This is a very important message and a wonderful reminder. Too often we try to change things when they are un-changable. We expend oodles of energy resisting and end up experiencing suffering. Learning to recognize our limits is incredibly empowering.

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Well said, Alyssa. We waste so much time and energy trying to force what cannot be forced.
