Emotion is a funny thing…
As humans there are four stages to self: Physical, Emotional, Mental And Spiritual. Each of these stages, in a perfect world, is governed by the higher stage. Our physical self is governed by our emotions, our emotions by our thoughts and our thoughts by our spirit.
Unfortunately we tend to let lower stages of our self decide what the rest of us is going to be. If we sprain our ankle we suddenly are sad or depressed. If we go through a break up or emotional tragedy suddenly all our thoughts are focused on that event. We allow our thoughts to convince us that there is no higher power and deny our spirituality. This is not the way our Heavenly Father designed us. We are Spiritual Beings here to have mortal experiences, not the other way around.
Life is full of ups and downs, a proverbial roller coaster of emotion, but that does not mean that we have to be governed. Frequently we are too passive in our efforts to guide, or be guided, in our day-to-day journey. What would happen if we took control? What if we actively sought the Divine? How would our lives be effected if we gave room for the royal with in us? Where would our thoughts, emotions be focused? Would the physical world around us be altered because our striving to live more spiritually?
“If healing is possible, but you don’t believe it can happen, then you don’t really want it to happen. There is something you want more than healing.”
“What would I want more than healing?”
“Unhappiness. Pain. Despair.”
“Why would I want to be unhappy, in pain or despairing?”
“Good question. Why do you?”
“Then why are you?”
