Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Balancing Emotions
"Emotional upsets are due mostly to our lack of understanding.
If we use our reasoning, we won't get into emotional upsets.
We shouldn't give room for upsets, but that doesn't mean that
we should be completely free from emotions. Emotions work from
the heart. We should be loving. We should have tender hearts, compassionate hearts, but not blind attachment. Heart and head
should go together. The head alone will not help us much. In the
same way, heart alone will not help much. Mere reasoning without
any feeling will be of no use. We'll be machines, robots, that's
all. There should be feeling and will; use your will to balance
your feelings. They should go together.
"God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
