The most important thing in our lives is the Spirit. -Pres. Ezra Taft Benson

I think the most important endeavor to maintain throughout life is trying to understand, listen to, and follow the Spirit. The happiest and best moments of my life have been direct results of paying attention to soft nudges and promptings to simple actions like speaking up or giving freely.

Finding Answers

Difficult answers to problems can be found to by asking questions, and the Spirit often seems to be way some of the hardest answers are confirmed. Many would refer to the Spirit as the human conscious, but I believe it's a little more nuanced than that.

Two scriptures in D&C allude to avenues that answers can be found through:

23 Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?

Having peace spoken to your mind is one way I've felt like I'm on the right track with tough decisions.

2 Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.
3 Now, behold, this is the spirit of revelation; behold, this is the spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground.

Being told in your mind and heart is another way. I tend to think of this as both peace trying to make sense of something logically and emotionally.
