An Integrated Persona

AN INTEGRATED PERSONA

Life has three aspects: action…emotion…thought.

They appear separate but we know that

no action is possible without thought or feeling.

At different times…in different situations

they each have a different effect.

Often…we struggle with our actions

BECAUSE…

Many times…thoughts take one direction…

feelings go a separate way…and

actions are completely contrary to both.

Sometimes…logic fails to make an impact.

But an insignificant action melts hearts.

Our emotions are unpredictable

and vary according to the situation.

Often what we FEEL…THINK…DO

are poles apart.

With such a disintegrated mind…

we experience restlessness.

Emotion is a power that influences our entire life.

Even our problems are at the emotional level!

NEGATIVE emotions make us miserable.

They bring:

agitation…unhappiness…conflict…frustration

POSITIVE emotions make us feel elevated.

They evoke:

calm…peace…happiness…harmony.

Accordingly…they affect our mind.

Where there is love…kindness…compassion

the mind automatically becomes CALM.

Where there is anger…hatred…jealousy,

the mind gets AGITATED.

Emotions can lead to…

thought fixations…obsessions…

maniac tendencies…mental health issues.

Understanding the place of emotions

is important but not enough!

We also need to harmonise…integrate:

=>>> our thoughts and emotions

=>>> our emotions and actions.

The purpose of all spiritual practices is

to integrate…harmonise…all three…

ACTION…EMOTION…THOUGHT.

The only one who achieves integration among

THOUGHT…EMOTION…ACTION…

is an INTEGRATED PERSONA

integrated at all levels of the personality.

He alone can live in peace and harmony!
