Afflictions

Now let us see how the things known as miseries, which are opposed to the true character of Reality, grew strong and powerful. These being under our control get power from us, while the other, being under God’s control, gets power from Him. The more we are attentive towards them [miseries], the stronger they grow by the effect of our thought. In course of time they become strong enough to over-shadow all our feelings and emotions. The only solution would be to turn towards God, which is the greatest power. The divine power will then begin to flow in, making afflictions totally ineffective
