The New Life: Caring for the voice of the heart and be deaf to the promptings of the mind

It is not merely a question of hardships and difficulties like those encountered in mast trips. The most difficult thing now is the need to control emotions and feelings, and to have absolute readiness for split-second and on-the-spot obedience to whatever I will ask you to do, or not to do. I do not expect any of you to be free from your respective reactions of good or bad impulses of anger, displeasure, likes and dislikes; but what I expect of you is not to make the least show or give any direct or indirect expressions to your feelings and reactions. (LM, p2749)

“In this New Life, we will be caring for the voice of the heart and be deaf to the promptings of the mind. The body will take care of itself. That will be Real Life — infinitely different from what it is now.” (LM, p2799)
