Thought and feeling

Their respective places

January 14th 2011
In order to do what is right each day, it is important to keep a check on how much value you give to feeling and how much to thought. Observe yourself: see how often your feelings, passions and instincts are in charge, and your thinking has retreated and just allows what is happening; or else, it intervenes, but only in order to allow your passions to fulfil their aims. Well, that is called living in anarchy. When thinking does not fulfil its role, that is, when it is not applying itself to controlling feelings and desires, there is anarchy. Have you ever wondered why Cosmic Intelligence has placed the head at the top of the body and the heart a little lower down? It is the same with a ship: the captain is up above, and the engines are below. The engines make the ship move forward, but the captain decides on the direction. We also have an engine, our heart, which drives our ship. But where will the heart go if it is not directed by the head, by the captain, who is up above, watching and giving orders so that the ship arrives safely?
