YOU are frequently subjected to difficult situations, when you must choose what course to take. A mood of depression may creep over you, or a sense of disappointment may hold you captive. Submit to it, and it will possibly master you. Reason it out quietly and logically, and you can deprive it of its power to enslave you.

Just as negative thinking can bring depression or disappointment, so can positive thinking emancipate you from its influence. Take ample time for meditation; let your thoughts deepen and mature.

Realize that you do yourself a great service when you promptly rid your mind of every negative thought, and that persistent, positive effort will make you master of your moods and circumstances.
