At times of sadness and despair, it must assert itself over feeling
January 11th 2011
Feeling is one thing and thinking another, but too often feeling colours thinking. Say you are feeling exhausted – which can happen – and this feeling triggers thoughts and feelings of discouragement, sadness or despair. Well, no, at such times, your thinking must influence your feeling: even if it is unable to quell it, it must be present like a light, like a beacon in the distance. Your thinking tells you that you can recover; then, despite your weariness and exhaustion, that is what you must believe, and not your feelings. So, there’s not a drop of energy left in your tank? Remember that the cosmic tank is full, and that it is there for you to go to in your thoughts for energy. For thinking is also used for this purpose: just a few drops from this reservoir of energy, and the flame of your nightlight, which was about to go out, is shining again.
