As we understand more how our thoughts create our moods, and how our moods are a barometer to the quality of our thinking, we are less and less frightened by our low moods. Although it appears as though they are “caused” by people or events around us, they are actually just the shadow of our thinking. Moods lose their importance when we see that they are just as illusory as our ever-changing thoughts. As our thoughts change, our moods change. Being afraid of our moods and thinking about them more trying to figure ourselves out is what holds them in place.
