experience of mental agony can be based in emotions, your mental or spiritual
state. You may even feel completely incapacitated. |
Do not despair - it is a natural part of the physical journey that we all will go through, at one time or another in our lives. At times when a strong negative emotion incapacitates you, try not to struggle against it. Do not allow it to take you into a darkness, but rather work to observe it without being encompassed by it.
The 3rd I Ching presents the image that only with great difficulty does the sprout break through to the light. You are destined for greatness, and you will be able to surmount this.
