"When you can reach beyond all these negative levels and perceive from the Soul, from the positive aspect of yourself, you can lift up in consciousness, see where your home is and see which path will lead you there. And whether the rough terrain lasts for ten miles or only a half mile, you can see what to do to traverse the path. At that point you can go back to your journey and use all the levels of your consciousness as tools to your advantage. You can use your body to move you along the path toward your goal, your imagination to create the image of safely reaching home, and your emotions to keep you happy and joyful. You use your mind to decide on a good direction and keep you focused on completing that direction. And you use the areas of the unconscious to strengthen you as you discern reality from illusion." -- John-Roger DSS
Much of the time the tail has wagged the dog. The emotions can whip us around while our mind produces images of fear and defeat.....
Get the altitude and take conscious direction of the mind and the emotions.
Meditation, Spiritual exercises, contemplation and anything that produces inspiration can lift you above the fray into the peace and the center of who you are.
May you navigate from the high place, climb the high mast and see the shore you are traveling to... the home, the paradise of the Soul.
