Feelings of discontent

Do not wait to remedy them

April 7th 2018
When feelings of discontent first arise, they are like fluid and malleable matter upon which it is possible to act, provided that we do not wait, because this matter gradually solidifies and ends up resisting any effort to bring about a change. Let us use an image. You have carelessly stepped in wet cement, and you stand there thinking about something else. The cement will set, and it will even become so hard that you will find yourself trapped; someone will have to get tools to break it apart, and you could be injured. This is how things also present themselves in inner life. If you do not react quickly to certain troublesome feelings, soon it is too late. This psychic matter solidifies and it cannot be ‘broken’ without causing further damage.
