FM said “if you can think of something funny to make you smile, you certainly can’t give directions”
Directions are thoughts only – they are a conscious wish to promote the natural order of things in the face of unconscious habits. They can not be forced or “done” they are like a powerful consistent undercurrent that needs tuning into.
Likewise when one is feeling negative or “down” this is simply an unconscious feeling that has arisen. It can simply be changed with a choice to tune into the undercurrent of positivity and grace and yes humour!
