Q: How do I know if I’m going in the right direction?
A: Direction is a linear concept. What you probably mean is whether the pathway you are following is suitable and valid. This is an important question to ask and reflects a humility in the acknowledgement of the ego/mind’s incapacity to tell truth from falsehood. One can verify the level of consciousness of any teaching or teacher, past or present. One can also cross- check with the muscle test to determine if this is a suitable pathway at this time for oneself.
