When we feel a strong emotion, we are mistaken if we believe it confirms the truth. Feelings are always a response to a belief – ALWAYS!
It can be incredibly powerful to ask yourself (which requires awareness of the mind/ thought) … IS IT TRUE? Where’s my evidence? (..and, is that true)
I find that anything less than compassionate inquiry leads to misunderstanding (and paranoia, separation, anger, fear… all the icky stuff!).
Give yourself the gift of inquiry – for your own peace of mind.
