Anticipate the difficult periods

March 5th 2022
Our inner life is subject to the same alternations as nature – day and night, ebb and flow: our consciousness lights up and then it darkens, it fills up and then it empties. And since this is so, we must try to become aware of the time when each of these phenomena will occur. Suppose that the difficult period is drawing near. If you have not seen it coming, you will have unwisely made commitments for this or that project, but when the time comes, you will no longer have any energy or inspiration left, and you will feel distraught. You could have avoided these problems if you had been able to anticipate the days when you would be weak and depressed. All mistakes are made in times of darkness, when our consciousness is clouded. Learn to recognize those moments and bide your time; do not undertake new ventures.
