Thoughts, not Feelings Lead You Godward

Come, and bring your thoughts where they can be held true, so that you can realize how you are held, supported, sustained and protected. This is your safety-your thought, and that thought is the realization of the presence of God here and now, within you, in the life you are living.
  --Letters of the Scattered Brotherhood   pages 60, 61

(32:5.6)  I am endeavoring to aid you in the crystallization of your thoughts about these values which are of infinite nature and eternal import.

  --[Paper 32 was presented by a Mighty Messenger temporarily attached to the Supreme Council of Nebadon and assigned to this mission by Gabriel of Salvington.]

(101:1.3) The divine spirit makes contact with mortal man, not by feelings or emotions, but in the realm of the highest and most spiritualized thinking. It is your thoughts, not your feelings, that lead you Godward. The divine nature may be perceived only with the eyes of the mind. But the mind that really discerns God, hears the indwelling Adjuster, is the pure mind. "Without holiness no man may see the Lord." All such inner and spiritual communion is termed spiritual insight. Such religious experiences result from the impress made upon the mind of man by the combined operations of the Adjuster and the Spirit of Truth as they function amid and upon the ideas, ideals, insights, and spirit strivings of the evolving sons of God.

    “Letters of the Scattered Brotherhood” is collection of 104 letters about the spiritually-uplifting experience of everyday life that can, with the gentlest of instruction and encouragement, become a dependable part of religion. The instructional letters in the LSB were written by many different authors and originally published in The Churchman Magazine (Anglican Church publication in the UK) from the mid-1930s to the end of WWII. In 1946-47, Mary Strong edited letters taken from the Churchman to an anthology. First published in 1948, the LSB have been reprinted countless times.
    The letters in this anthology were contributed by leaders of the Church of England during the pre-war period and WWII (approx. 1933 to 1945). This period included the 6-year buildup to the WWII, and 7 years of actual armed combat between the Allied and Axis powers. The German Luftwaffe made repeated day and night bombings raids on the big cities (London Blitz) and the English countryside. Except for Switzerland, Ireland, Sweden and Spain, Britain was the only western European country that had not been invaded and occupied by the Nazis by May 1940.

    Thanks Tom. LSB is one of my favorites, too. But fyi I did some extensive research to find out the "authors" of the material and they weren't leaders of the Church of England. Much more fascinating than that. I put the backstory of the book in a free website here:
