Discretion and emotion


“When the intellect discards the dictates of conscience, or when the heart does not respond to what the intellect says, there is disharmony. So discretion and emotion must go hand in hand. In every phase of life, material and spiritual, this is true.

If you accept a thing without discretion, and later on repent for it, there is disharmony. Similarly, if you don’t accept a thing, through prejudice, and later you find you ought to have accepted it, there is disharmony.

People seem to seek happiness; but they make it (the seeking) so complicated that they become disgusted with it. Yet it is so simple. If discretion (head) and emotion (heart) act together, it is better, say best.

But if preference is to be given spiritually, it is first to conscience (heart) … Real happiness is within; once you know how to attain it, you will find it everywhere.”
