There is another advantage, and a very important one, in referring decisions to the Holy Spirit with increasing frequency. Perhaps you have not thought of this aspect, but its centrality is obvious.
To follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance is to let yourself be absolved of guilt.
It is the essence of the Atonement.
It is the core of the curriculum.
The imagined usurping of functions not your own is the basis of fear. The whole world you see reflects the illusion you have done so, making fear inevitable.
To return the function to the One To Whom it belongs is thus the escape from fear. And it is this that lets the memory of love return to you.
Do not, then, think that following the Holy Spirit’s guidance is necessary merely because of your own inadequacies.
It is the way out of hell for you.
