What is generally considered by many a great gift and skill is a bane and a curse to many of those who have it. These are those who constantly analyse what they think and feel.
But surely there is a place where the personality surrenders to the analysing mind and lets it roam freely. Certainly, there is much to learn — this here is our tool.
These analytical thoughts should not hurt us if we’re not held in contempt by them.
It’s only when what we’re thinking about is or becomes of key importance to us that we have a problem.
Even, then, we can allow ourselves rest within contemplation.
The faith that doesn’t care what it gets and doesn’t get is a great supplementary gift to the analytical thinker. Seek it and we shall find.
