The disciplining of the mind can be found in the practice of meditation. The disciplining of the emotions must be found in interaction with others. There is no more certain way to gain mastery of the emotions than to have to mingle with people from all walks of life and to always prefer to impart the flame of love and of charity toward those who do not have the flame of harmony.
The choice is always there–to be pulled into the morasses, the cesspools, vortices, quicksands of negativity or to shun them. And always remember the words of your Lord: “What is that to thee? Follow thou me.” In other words, forget it. Let it go. Do not become further engaged as you see your energies escalating and, with the escalation, the loss of your God-control.
