Warped Feelings

Envy is a feeling which tells me something. The pure feeling underlying envy is one of worthiness and abundance. Envy is a twisting of that feeling, that feeling thwarted by untruths. When I felt envious, I thought that I was not worthy of that which I envied and that there was a lack of that thing. Now, when I feel envious, I choose to think, "There is more than enough." And, "I deserve that too." The feelings that then come are of abundance and worthiness. Life is a menu and I am choosing what I like. Envy is a warped version of the feeling that tells me that I am always in a state of perfect choice.

Worry is a feeling which tells me something. The pure feeling underlying worry is one of inspiration and creativity. Worry is a twisting of that feeling, that feeling thwarted by untruths. When I felt worried, I thought that I was not capable of rising to the challenge, that things were out of control, and that I was going to suffer. Now, when I feel worried, I choose to think, "This is an opportunity." And, "How is my creativity going to shine this time?" The feelings that then come are of creativity and inspiration. Life is an opportunity and I am taking it running. Worry is a warped version of the feeling that tells me that I am infinitely capable.

Fear is a feeling which tells me something. The pure feeling underlying fear is one of courage and strength. Fear is a twisting of that feeling, that feeling thwarted by untruths. When I felt fear, I thought that I was weak and that I had to hide. Now, when I feel fear, I choose to think, "This situation challenges the untruths I hold; let it destroy them, so that my true nature can shine through." And, "I am the hero of my life, what would I do in this situation?" The feelings that then come are of strength and courage. Life is a pestle and mortar and I am being ground into my essence by it. Fear is a warped version of the feeling that tells me that I am unconditional love.

Irritation is a feeling which tells me something. The pure feeling underlying irritation is one of acceptance and peace. Irritation is a twisting of that feeling, that feeling thwarted by untruths. When I felt irritated, I thought that something outside of me should be different or should not be present. Now, when I feel irritated, I choose to think, "What is inside of me which I am rejecting and at war with?" And, "Let me accept that part of me." The feelings that then come are of peace and acceptance. Life is a mirror which reflects my self-perception. Irritation is a warped version of the feeling that tells me that I am everything.
