I'm feeling this thread, and I don't say that very often. I have a very self-defeating mind set sometimes, most of the time actually. It's feels odd when I try to boost my confidence or feel good about things. I have lazy aspects about myself and have been working on it, yet still I have things go wrong. My classes are uninteresting and my grades are hurting because I'm uninspired to do the work. Just now, when I was reading some threads on here I tried to close my eyes and picture myself somewhere else. Then I got the quickening. Does anyone know what I mean by the quickening??

Negative is the polarity of positive, therefore if we wish to give up negative emotions we must also understand we have to give up the high positives and take what is called The Middle Path between these polarities. It is the straight path between all worldly emotions. The middle path is awarness which is neither negative nor positive it 'just is', it is being the awareness behind emotions.
