River of Emotion

We all have a river of emotions which runs through our life. But we don’t have to live our lives in that river! We can recognize that the river is there, notice it, watch its current and speed, its calm or turbulence, but we don’t have to ride the river and get caught up in the currents of human emotion. I’ve glimpsed recently that I can operate over here on the banks – on the solid ground – and not operate in the river. I can operate on the solid fact that Soul’s true expression is constant and healing – not turbulent and changeable. I’ve also noticed that I don’t want to dam the river either – try to control human emotion or stop it from flowing – then I give it power by making it my focus and the water rises, my thought gets flooded, and I drown in the torrents.

If I ever feel like I’ve gotten swept into the currents, I look for a rock to stand on (the rock, Truth – the Christ) in the middle of the river (listen for the Christ-like thought that lifts me up above the currents) and then jump from that solid platform to the banks – the solid ground of reality – God – Soul expressed. That’s where I can stand undisturbed, unaffected by the river of human emotions.

About TayTruth

I love Truth. I've always loved Truth, God. The goal here, is to express Truth in the most accurate, authentic way possible. This blog is a work in progress. The expression of Truth grows more absolute in proportion to one's understanding. The understanding of Truth expressed here has been shaped mainly by a life-long study of the Bible and the works of Mary Baker Eddy, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science. But, as a seeker of Truth, any representation of the Truth that enlightens understanding has been welcome, and there are far too many to enumerate. Gratitude is the order of the day, when thinking of all who have spoken the Truth in whatever form.
