The ego is totally by-passed in decisions of the Spirit.
When these “meetings” occur, whether with another person or with an important decision in life, which are quite rare, it’s the Spirit “walking in”, giving no choice to the ego.
That’s why, later on, it (the ego) can’t remember the specifics, it can’t “use” memory, it can’t break down and analyze. It’s a relationship/decision that transcends both heart and mind. You find yourself already "in it", before the linear mind has any chance of realizing it is so.
