Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.

Think and feel

You can think and you can feel. You can reason and you can abandon all reason.

You can understand logic and you can appreciate beauty. You can find great value in a mathematical formula and also in the chorus of crickets on a summer night.

Do you understand the limitless possibilities that arise from such a potent combination? Can you feel the power that lives within your spirit?

When your thoughts and your feelings support and encourage and amplify each other, truly great things happen. When your creativity is enabled by discipline, and when your thoughts are energized by passion, nothing is out of reach.

If your thoughts stray too far from your purpose, you can feel your way back. If your feelings keep you stuck in one place, you can think your way out.

You are one, and yet you can think as well as feel. Continue to more fully experience the wholeness of that miraculous contradiction, and you’ll know that it is no contradiction at all.

— Ralph Marston
