“Will Murtha: Shouldn’t we just concentrate on creating more positive emotions in our lives, rather than listening to the bad emotions? Wouldn’t it be better if we adopted more positive thinking and therefore shut out the negativity?
Voice of Higher Presence: First, no amount of positive thinking in the world will change anything if practical action is not brought into the picture. You could pray for peace every day of your existence, but until your life becomes a visual demonstration of that peace within you, then nothing will ever alter in your world. Second, do not imagine that positive thinking alone can resolve the suffering felt by your soul. To believe that you can suffocate your emotional pain under a thin gloss of positive thoughts will still not make your soul’s pain vanish. This practice simply mutes your internal pain. It suspends it, but definitely does not eradicate it. All positive thinking does is block off your emotional pain until you are ready to pick up your trauma once again and deal with it.
Emotional hunger is really a disguise for the hunger of the soul that wishes to express itself in a physical form. Your emotions are your truth, and in every moment of your life, they want to be heard.”
William L. Murtha, in “Dying for a Change”
