Emotions of Reason

Quote of the day: 

Anger is never without Reason, but seldom with a good One.
-Benjamin Franklin

Everything happens for a reason.
A very important life lesson no doubt.

But it's not what happens to you that really matters...
It's how you react to it. Emotions control your thinking.

How often have we allowed emotions get the better of us...thereby preventing us from being rational with our actions. The truth is we take our emotions with us everywhere we go, it's a part of us- It'll always be.

The best thing we can do is to try to understand ourselves better and not try to avoid our emotions. We can't keep avoiding feelings of anger, resentment, love, pain, and so on. And we can't keep pretending something doesn't matter to us when it's really eating us up on the inside.

So today, acknowledge all your emotions -both good and bad. Make peace with them, embrace them if you have to, and let go of those you feel aren't moving you forward.

For example some of your emotions could be the cause of you having troubled personal relationships with family and friends all the time. You don't need that, so let it go.

Become the person you once were, that happy person people used to love.
It's okay to be emotional, but try not to let negative emotions ruin your way of life and those of others around you.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
Peace & Love*

Silence of Answers

Quote of the day: 

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.
-William Burroughs

The answers are right there. If you'll only stop for a moment to relax.
Life is short, yes. But don't make it any shorter by always being on the edge all time.

You seek answers but you are the answer. That which you seek resides within the eternal source which resides deep inside of you.

All the chaos around the world has deprived you of your solitude, your silence. And your thoughts too? Sit idle for a minute and listen, let your thoughts be static not erratic.

Focus on that one thing that you seek answers to.
It might have just been there all along, lost in all the clutter of everyday life.

Have a great week folks!

Peace, Love.
