The Way Out of Any Stressful Situation

Question: One maxim of self-development I sense is true is that the way out of any stressful situation is to “go through it.” How does this approach apply to reducing stress-producing thought-attacks?

Answer: Everything depends upon our ability to inwardly discriminate between thoughts and feelings that are for us as opposed to those that are against us. Whenever confronted with an onslaught of internal impressions, the most powerful tool you have is to go silent. Step away from the situation inwardly by bringing everything that is going through you into your deliberate field of attention. There is a native unity in a silent mind that is able to both witness and “taste” the thoughts and feelings passing through it. It is this internal field of silence that reveals the character of any impressions and shows them for what they are. It’s hard to make a mistake when your first wish is to see these thoughts and feelings instead of just unconsciously turning your will over to them.
