“Being sensitive and responsive to human need creates genuine and lasting happiness, while such kindly attitudes safeguard the soul from the destructive influences of anger, hate, and suspicion.” (UB 140:5.16)
Thought Adjuster: “Let us ponder another of Jesus’ tips for genuine happiness. How appropriately thoughtful it was of him to divulge an extensive list of the secret ingredients of his divine family recipe. How else could his followers ever succeed in laying everlasting foundations for the Kingdom of the Heart he preconized?
“Happy are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” [Jesus] alluded to an emotional attitude of tenderheartedness.” (UB 140:5.16)
Just as oil and water do not mix, compassion cannot cohabitate with angry, hateful, and suspicious low-lives. It is a potent antidote to these metaphorical lemon drops whose acidic Ph triggers instant protective shutdowns of the hearts on which they land.
Those subject to violent outbursts may experience some short-lived semblance of euphoria because they ‘vented’ toxic emotions. Yet, dumping these poisonous substances in the planetary atmosphere may dangerously threaten its flora — not unlike the proliferation of dandelion seeds that multiply thousandfold wherever airdropped by whimsical winds.
Abused hearts may reach a breaking point unless they seek urgent care by ‘taking to heart’ Jesus’ enlightened advice on repurposing their pain as a lever toward lasting happiness. It is doable for those who love with a fatherly as well as a brotherly affection. Such ‘comforting’ influences maintain a charitable focus that prevents purulent emotions from contaminating their loving hearts.”
