Thoughts and feelings
How can you go ahead and take action when you don’t feel like it? Set your feelings aside and do what needs to be done.
How can you move toward your dream when you don’t think you can do it? Set your thinking aside and follow your heart.
Thoughts and feelings are powerful and extremely useful, yet they do not have to control you. You control you.
Pay heed to your feelings and listen carefully to your thoughts. Then act according to what you know, in that part of you beyond thought and beyond feeling.
Thoughts and feelings are important parts of life, and yet they are not the whole essence of life. Keep yourself connected to that ineffable presence that is life itself.
Be guided by what you think and what you feel. And all the while, be true to who you are.
