Byron Katie, author of Loving What Is! poses four questions to help us with the discernment process.

  1. Is it the truth?  Is the story based upon facts?
  2. Do you absolutely know that the information is true?
  3. How do you react?  What happens within you when you believe that story?
  4. Where would you be without that thought?

These are good questions to help in the discernment process.
