and feelings go together, and by regulating the action,
which is under the control of the will, we regulate the feeling,
which is not."
One thing that can help us in managing our emotions
is the principle of Perspective which teaches us that,
"Shifting our perspective and looking at a thing from
a different angle will change our feelings about it,"
because feelings follow behavior.
For example, with some disliked behavior in ourself,
or some problem that keeps recurring in our life,
if we see it as a wake-up call giving us a warning
that we need to grow stronger and take the action
it suggests, things will start to feel better because
our perspective on the situation will have changed,
from something that's beating us to something we're
we get its message and make the course correction.
we no longer hate the symptom.
