Dialogue on Awakening
"...understand that emotions serve well the ego, but do not serve the spirit. Emotions are derived as expressions from ego activities." Dialogue on Awakening page 26
Manly Palmer Hall
"The lost key is the mastery of emotion. Through each one of us courses the fiery rays of human emotion, a great seething cauldron of power behind each expression of the dynamic energy of human experience. Through the perversion of human emotions there comes into the world untold sorrow, which through reaction, manifests in the mental and physical bodies. The Great Work of the Master can be called the art of balance. It can be truly said of the Master that through suffering she or he has learned to be glad; through weeping, has learned to smile; and through dying, has learned to live. The Master is not ordained, but is the natural product of cause and effect, and none but those who live the cause can produce the effect." [Manly Palmer Hall]
The only Truth is Love. It has many faces, and sometimes it is confusing when one attempts to discern Love and its expressions in one’s life. Such confusion can be dispelled through the power of the Good Heart. Your Heart is naturally good. The energy which surrounds you, swirling in response to your outlook, emotions, actions, thoughts, dreams and illusions, filters the Love that comes from you and that which comes to you. Your quest for Truth must begin with the Beauty of the Self. That is the Good Heart. The Good Heart is one that sees itself as a Center to and from which blessings flow in abundance. If this picture is desired, the heart will open to accommodate its full power of Love, bringing peace to the Self and others. We stand by to assist your unfolding, and the clarification of your beauty and Light. [Jesus, Good Heart]
Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"Male and female have also been individualised to experience and express WILLPOWER.
WILLPOWER in the MALE is experienced and expressed primarily as Activity. In primitive forms - he moves out into the environment to fulfill his INTENTION. Therefore, he dons the robes of the leader and quester. He was individualised to think and work to fulfill his purposes without the encumbrance of emotions.
WILLPOWER in the FEMALE is motivated and experienced primarily as Feeling - the Need to Nurture the original INTENTION and bring it, PURPOSE fully to full term - fruition - through the process of caring, feeding, clothing, repairing, teaching, protecting.
PURPOSE is entirely different to INTENTION since purpose comes down from the mental plane of intention and becomes an emotional drive, a desire to formulate 'a means to achieve the intended end'.
A 'powerful INTENTION to do something' becomes a PURPOSE behind continued existence. In this way, thought and feeling are married to perform the work of creation.
The male is constantly roaming seeking new ideas, new ways to fulfill his INTENTIONs to give him purpose in life.
The female's intentions are 'purpose personified', sensitive and stable, prepared to make sacrifices for the loved ones.
Therefore, the two basic IMPULSES within the SOURCE of BEING - expressed in physical form as male and female - are inter-dependent. One could not survive without the other. Both are needed for the continuity of creation.
Because of his masculine mobility, his leadership drive, the male has considered himself superior to the female. This is because she remains stable, creating security for the male. But the feminine drive is the drive of unconditional love, the drive worthy of the highest respect and consideration to enable her to flourish and perform her innate purpose within the household in peace of mind and joy.
The man's role is to provide physical security and material means of subsistence for the family.
The woman's role is to provide emotional security and the emotional means of personal fulfilment and joy within the family environment." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 18]
"As I revealed to you in Letter 1, during the time I received full illumination in the desert, I was shown that 'matter' was not really solid. I was not given to understand exactly how the electrical particles which I termed the 'shimmer of motes' took on the appearance of visible 'matter'. I only knew that these 'motes' were moving at high frequencies of speed within 'GOD MIND' and 'GOD MIND' was therefore universal.
I perceived that 'GOD MIND' was both the creator - and substance - of all things within creation itself. Of this, I was absolutely certain.
I also 'saw' very clearly that human thought, when fraught with conviction or emotion, radically affected this process of materialisation of visible forms.
Therefore the human mind could - and did - interfere with the true intention of 'GOD MIND'." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 6]
"As the ego drive gradually relinquishes its hold over your mind and emotions, you will find that laughter bubbles up spontaneously and brings a wonderful feeling of release. The 'ripple effect' of laughter raises your consciousness frequencies of vibration not only because it is energy released where you most need it - over your heart - over your diaphragm, the seat of your emotions but because LAUGHTER is directly of Divine Consciousness.
Therefore, laughter is Divine." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 9, page 14]
"The spirituality of each soul is such that - the purpose, the design, the desire, the application of self in any direction changes the urges and builds or lessens the emotions in the physical." [Cayce (2279-1)]
"Not that the entity in its meekness is not capable of being fired by emotions even to madness or anger. These are well. For they that are not capable of becoming emotional over their own ideas and ideals are very lax, but those who may not control same are in a sad plight indeed!" [Cayce (1129-2)]
". . . don't get mad and don't cuss a body out mentally or in voice. This brings more poisons than may be created by even taking foods that aren't good." [Cayce (470-37)]
"Imagination and emotions are the most concentrated forms of energy that you possess as physical creatures. Any strong emotion carries within it far more energy than, say, that required to send a rocket to the moon. "Emotions, instead of propelling a physical rocket, for example, send thoughts from this interior reality through the barrier between nonphysical and physical into the "objective" world - no small feat, and one that is constantly repeated." [Seth / Jane Roberts, Session 625, p. 95, The Nature of Personal Reality]
"When you feel the rise of unpleasant emotions, take a moment and make an effort to identify their source. The answers are far more available than you may have previously believed. Accept such feelings as your own in the moment. Do not shove them underneath, ignore them or try to substitute what you think of as good thoughts. First be aware of the reality of your feelings. As you become more aware of your beliefs over a period of time, you will see how they bring forth certain feelings automatically. A man who is sure of himself is not angry at every slight done him, nor does he carry grudges. A man who fears for his own worth, however, is furious under such conditions. The free flow of your emotions will always lead you back to your conscious beliefs if you do not impede them." [Seth / Jane Roberts, Session 625, p. 95, The Nature of Personal Reality]
