Regardless of dilemma we are facing, decisions we make in life, are a direct derivative of the state of mind we are in when making a decision. In a higher state of mind – our decisions represent higher level of our innate potential / intelligence while in a lower state of mind – decision we make, will represent a proportionally lower level of our innate potential / intelligence.
The best way to assess our state of mind is by the type of feelings we are experiencing in that very moment. Before making a decision, ask yourself: “What is My State of Feelings at This Moment?”
If you are experiencing a feeling shown in bottom half of the scale ( tense, tired, hopeless, sad, hateful) and NOT in the top half of the scale ( Relaxed, Energized, Hopeful, Happy, Loving Life) - don’t make any decision. Take a break. Go do something nice for yourself, allowing your State of Feelings to rise-up, and only then call it.
You see, lower states of mind, are driven by our sub-conscious mind (us in the past), while higher states of mind are driven by conscious mind (us in the present).
Being aware of this simple insight can steer you away from future filled with regrets and pain, and towards happiness and fulfillment.
