When Happy Moods Turn Sad

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Sometimes I am overcome by a sad thought or image that pops up in my mind, even when things are going well! What can I do about a happy mood that turns sad?

Answer: Here is the key to unlocking this continuing conflict: There is not a thought that can stay in our mind, not a feeling that can remain in our heart that is not willingly remembered. These unwanted images return again and again as they do because something within us keeps recalling them and drawing them to the forefront of our mind.

When a sad thought appears in your mind, instead of remembering the unhappiness this image stirs in you, turn the tables on it. Bring its little troubled life into your remembrance of that greater presence within you that dwells well beyond its punishing power.

Work like this whenever you can and, like a pebble tossed into a deep pond, the ripple effects of that past pain will simply disappear into the healing nature of the Now. Instead of a life of endless resistance, you will learn the timeless secret of how to replace any form of darkness with the Light you have chosen over it.

The answer to these two questions will provide a strong foundation for survival, especially with the thought life.
