Feeling and thought

Your anger is justified, and powerful, but not usually very practical. Your frustration is understandable, but not particularly effective.

Feel what you feel, and let the feeling connect you with authentic purpose. Then go beyond the feeling, and pursue your deeply-felt purpose with a realistic plan, with thoughts, with strategy, with action.

You have the wondrous gift of feeling, and the amazing ability to think. Make appropriate and complementary use of both.

Let your feelings inject passion into your endeavors. But stop short of allowing them to force you into foolish actions.

Use your thoughts to benefit from the power of reason and logic. Yet avoid getting so wrapped up in thought that you lose all connection to the purpose within you that exists beyond reason.

You possess, at once, the power of thought and the power of feeling. Keep those remarkable powers in balance, supporting each other, informing each other, and pushing your life in a positive direction.

— Ralph Marston
