A positive inner voice…

Within the mind there is much of interest,
many positive feelings, a vital energy
far more entertaining than any amusement
we may find outside ourselves.

When we turn our attention inward and listen sensitively,
we may find that our senses, our feelings, and our awareness
communicate qualities of appreciativeness and joy.

Here, in the quiet openness of our inner being,
it is possible to contact a positive inner voice
that speaks to us directly.

Our own natural resource

Bowling Pins Burgundy-GreenWe become our own natural resource;
we can consult within our own experience
and counsel ourselves.

When troubles come,
we are able to adjust
or even substitute the feelings tones of our choice.

By doing this, we find the power to actively engage even unpleasant or unfamiliar experiences.

Every experience is energy

We know that within every feeling or sensation
there is the same pure energy –
that both negative and positive emotions
are flexible manifestations of energy.

Then we know how to use the raw material of experience.

At the beginning of any sensation
we increase and expand it
until it becomes firmly established.

that calms the mind, balances the ups and downs of life,
