He should take scrupulous care to discriminate between the ego-prompted emotions and the intuitive, impersonal feelings. Since this will be a none-too-easy task he will have to walk carefully here. Where he knows that he cannot trust himself he should refuse to be carried away by his promptings, no matter how vehement they may be. But where the depth, the calmness, and the certitude of his inner experience combine to give him conviction of higher guidance, he may make the experiment and surrender to it. In this way and with such care, he will not give himself too easily or too quickly to inner messages. On the other hand, he will not overplay the sceptic thereby and lose the benefit of an authentic whisper from on high.
