Choose your feelings

The way you feel can tell you much about the world around you and your relationship to it. Yet the way you feel is not who you are.

Your emotions may seem to be so much a part of you that at times you cannot find anything else. Yet you are able at any time to change those emotions if you wish.

Always, at the heart of your being, you are in control. The emotions you experience are the emotions you create or allow.

Just as you can allow your emotions to fill your awareness, you can also allow them to drop cleanly and completely away. When you’ve heard what your feelings have to say, you can choose to let go of them.

Or, if you’re enjoying the way you feel, you can choose to continue feeling that way. The point is, you can choose.

Always remember that like your thoughts and actions, your feelings are your choice. Choose the ones that will move your life in the direction you most want to go.
