Drawn outside the reflective nature to guide human relations.

There are people who testify to the witness of how the Holy Spirit leads them to minister (guide and inform human relations) to others through the faculty of the reflective nature; manifested in their reflecting upon other people and circumstances through political and religious intellectual constructs. I am drawn into a different way.

Through the power and presence of the spirit of Jesus Christ in my conscience  and consciousness, I am drawn out of the faculty of the reflective nature to guide and inform relationships and interactions and into the faculty of the direct and immediate awareness of the activity of Christ's presence and activity in my conscience. This different faculty guides and informs relationships and interactions through immediate and immanent awareness of Christ's active presence in and during human relations. In this faculty of continuous awareness of Christ's presence, the experience of a diminishment of Christ's active presence guides me away from a particular behavior or interaction and the experience of an increase in Christ's presence affirm a behavior or interaction.

This establishment in the continous and direct presence of Christ is become and is becoming my sole guide in matters of human relations and draws me outside the reflective nature and the agency of political, religious, educational, and economic institutions and human agents to guide and inform relationships and interactions.
