Ultimately you will know what to do, but strength and a receptivity to listening to the inner voice is needed.
If you are walking towards the East and feel undesirable pain, it may be useful to go West. if you are used to the reassurance of the heart-room, and upon entering the mind-room, you feel uncomfortable, it may be wise to return to the comfort of the safety zone.
Generally, walking towards the Light brings strength, and darkness brings weakness. Expansion is life, narrowness is death. If my weight is 300 pounds, and my favourite food is ice cream and burgers, and if my breathing becomes difficult, it may be useful to look at my nutrition. Love of Self is somewhat like this.
So let's look at strength, weakness; narrowness and expansion. What do you feel most in the presence of your situation, all things included? Reflect, then use your wisdom. God speed!
