    The average man is ruled by the explosions of his emotions, and cannot think clearly. - Yogananda


    Conflict is always emotional. – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


    Emotions arise from thoughts which arise, in turn, from foundational belief structures about the nature of Reality and your own innate identity.- Metta Zetty


    The conflict in the world is not between good and evil, as is so often projected. The conflict is always between one man’s belief and another man’s belief, whether it is within the family or between nations. The moment you believe something, you are in conflict with the opposing belief. You can postpone it with moderate talk. But conflict is inevitable. – Jaggi Vasudev


    Ego is complete identification with thought and emotion. – Eckhart Tolle

    Be aware that what you think, to a large extent, creates the emotions that you feel. See the link between your thinking and your emotions. Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them. – Eckhart Tolle


    Walk into a situation consciously and you will be able to walk out of it harmlessly. - Vernon Howard

    The exact opposite may be true, at least for me. Sorry.

    My point being that too much self-questioning can get in the way of spontaneous creative expression, and that the idea that you always have to exceed your limitations sets up a barrier to freeing what is innately within you. Sometimes what you already have is good enough. Picasso said it was a good idea to work at 75 percent of your ability, and just hope that the really hot moments come along now and again.

    If UV were operating in the UK I would probably check it out at least.

    Job 11:7 - "Can you find out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?"

    I appreciate the sentiment behind most religions. There are some beautiful lessons there. I just think people get too zealous about it and can't keep that shit to themselves.
