Choices In The Reservoir Of Feelings, Part 3

Now I want to talk to you about how we can use the reservoir of feelings to support and sustain us - to acquire what we need even in a moment of pressure where we need to respond in some way and we do not have another person there to guide us.

This is what I recommend - first and foremost learn the following Living Prayer. Say to yourself if you cannot speak out loud or if you can whisper even - say this though it's always best to speak this out loud quietly - I recommend you say, "I am asking now to feel and to know the best guidance to lead me through this moment and help me to arrive at the most benevolent place for me now."

Then wait for a moment or two or even for longer if you like and after you have that, slowly turn if you can - not just your gaze but your body would be best - maybe you'll be sitting on a swivel chair or maybe you can just turn slowly. You don't have to stare at people or circumstances around you, you are turning to feel physically what position your body would be in to feel at its best.

If you need to go some direction, go in the direction where your body feels at its best. For those of you who know how to experience the warmth as I've discussed here before many times, use that as your best guide. For others, you may have to have some other means of knowing where and how you feel best - move in that direction.

If it is an idea or an action or something that you need to say - then if you can feel the warmth - focus on the warmth, maintain your focus on the warmth and speak. You will have to speak slowly because while focusing on the warmth and speaking you're doing two things at exactly the same moment and the warmth, which is the physical evidence of loving yourself, will lead you to the best words to speak that will be the most benevolent for you and very often when we are doing the most benevolent thing for ourselves we are doing the most benevolent things for others or contributing to that.

Three, if it is an action that is required then see if you can make motions in this way of feeling the warmth, maintaining the warmth and making those motions. I'll say more about these things soon in part 4 of this series and in times to come but for right now focus on the homework as I've suggested.

These lessons I speak of here are always precursors of things you may come across in life and the homework is intended to make those moments experienced by you be ones of much greater ease.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
