Depression often is a signal to slow down. Other signals include things going wrong like 'stubbing your foot'.(Matthew 4:6; Luke 4:10,11; Psalms 91:9-12), accidentally cutting yourself, minor accidents and the like

If these things are on an increase, you had better listen. It is then time to downshift.(simpleliving.org); time to take a step back and off in another direction for a while:.Proverbs 16:9.

When too much you is in your life your emotions become stifled, your direction becomes confused and you alienate yourself from others. 

Governments in arrogance.(forgetting that they are to serve and carry out exactly the will of the people {if it is later proved wrong after much education and consultation to determine the correct way, then it can be reversed}).do this all the time, seldom attempting to find out what the consensus of citizens interested enough to participate is. 

But man pursues headstrong into whatever areas seem possible, threatening transgression of even the laws of nature. Time for reflection and/or change. Even a movie that moves you and brings forth good emotions is refreshing. A time in the wilderness is good. Even a walk alone helps. The Creator may want you to have a look at something else out there. His angels do strange things to get messages to us:.Psalms 91:11,12 "For he gives his angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone." See 'God Always Warns'.

Consider also what other things that may particularly strike your mind as different. Not so much as warnings, but as guidance toward change of thinking and life.

The Creator, thankfully, often 'shows up' when we 'reach the bottom', as Elijah did:.1Kings 19:4-10. What depressed him? An evil woman.(see 'Mating').in a position of power:.verses 2,3. And he felt that he was alone in it all:.verse 10. Listen to the still small voice inside you. Christ is in you.if you believe He is because believing is the frequency of existence that makes it so.

If you never saw the Sun and only heavy clouds, you wouldn't believe that it was there if someone told you. It's belief that opens the door.(Revelation 3:20).because you only see what you subconsciously want to see. Once you believe the Sun is there, you are then interested in it. 

Ever start considering a certain car? You begin to see them everywhere. Where were they before? Still there, still driving around, but hidden from your view because they were not in your consciousness. They were in, shall we say, a parallel universe. Start looking for a chic yellow sweater and black skirt and you'll notice many women wearing them that you never previously did.

But if depression is chronic, you need to take control to break the cycle. Be alert enough not to get down on yourself. As soon as a depressing thought comes that may get you despondent or even discouraged, replace it with 'Christ is in me and I'm in Him' and then go and do something; go about your business.

Ancient David wrote this Psalm when he felt persecution was around all sides of him:.the 7th Psalm.

Emotion follows thought. Watch your thoughts!.Proverbs 4:23 "Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.".If you begin to accept as true all the concepts out there that are negative and produce cancer, accidents, etc., you're inviting trouble. Thoughts change life. Change your own universe.

People accept what is rolling around out there, such as, 'I guess we'll all end up with cancer and diabetes', 'I haven't had an accident in a while. I guess my number's coming up'.

Such garbage thoughts as these take you into the path of doom, especially if you have an emotion over a thought which cements the thought in the subconscious from where thoughts become things. So, it's not in your best interest to harbor a sense of impending doom. Thank the Creator that they never come back exactly as we thought of them. And He knows how to help you here.

Obviously if it works one way, it works the other way. What we see, we sort of become. If you see a bunch of negatives true for your friends and are not presently minded to deal with them, you'll be accepting them as true and what you accept as true becomes also true for you sometime as you roll along the pathway of life.

One has a mind and can learn to use it for his or her benefit or curse. You are the choicemaker and can choose thoughts you want to be good for you and your life. Choose them!

An emotion is a conscious feeling, a feeling that is in your mind at the present because of thoughts that evoked that feeling. 

Emotions arise from thoughts important to you, whether good or bad, that is, whether or not the thoughts will produce good or negative things in your life and in lives of others. When you think of when you were a little kid being outside playing in the garden with the brother or sister that you love, making memories of closeness with each other, these thoughts bring up the good emotion of a deep love that you can feel in your stomach.

Likewise with emotions that arise when you think of a bad dispute you had with someone. Feelings are evoked which direct attention to the state of mind you may presently be in; something for you to deal with. How?

You just have to decide to exert effort, to be vigilant, to be on the qui vive, guarding your heart and the hearts of your children  at all times, for out of the heart comes the issues of life:.Proverbs 4:23. Feeling sorry for self is accepting discouragement by allowing thoughts against the self. Such deficiencies upset and prevent a balanced outlook on life:.2Peter 3:17.

Paul tells us:.Philippians 4:8; 1Corinthians 9:24-27

And from the Old Testament:.Proverbs 25:28. Guard hearts precious to you by watching your thoughts and those of your children.

Watch emotions. Do not allow emotions to take you out of a good job, relationship, etc., by getting upset or despondent. Like this person, it's difficult to make a decision for the better when you may not be at your best. If you are not finding joy in your job, find another. God moves us on in different ways. Use Ask Suby to help you.

Keep your life in perspective; a job is just so that you can provide physical necessities so you can progress spiritually into the real world:.1Timothy 6:8.

Realize a criterion for hiring today has been a product of an inept educational system.(*).where a person is often hired based on what they may know, instead of what can they do, what their potential may be and how eager can they acquire and apply knowledge yet to be learnt. Many employers realize this idiocy and are paying less and less attention to what someone has been able to just remember in order to pass an exam and get some sort of a certificate.

Getting the job: One of the most important things in getting a job as reported by human resource people in a ten year study was, they looked for applicant ability to converse intelligently on a wide range of subjects. This would show that they have good people skills, can engage in various subjects of conversation and would easily be able to get along with different personalities.

Stay in the present in your mind. Forget about what they may think of you. Forget about what you may think of you, especially your past rejections and fears of the future. Remember the Creator only can do for you what He can do through you. Why?

Most losing out on interactions of life lack people skills, so they slink into obscurity. Parents perhaps never taught interactions with others by example. They perhaps didn't take the kids with them when the parents were interacting with adults.

To guard emotions one must learn to guard thoughts because emotion follows thought and thought gains its state of wholeness, its undividedness, from feelings.

All is one, just different frequency functioning. The body, the mind, emotions, feelings, spirit, soul; all is of one underlying intelligent energy that is amenable to modification by attitude. Be sure your attitude is one of positivity because a negative one will eat you out of life.

Feelings are the impressions one gets from his emotions when he is alert to what is going on. Where do feelings come from?

When out to get a job, consider the people, before accepting what they may be offering, if you want to work with them at all at this time. Consider those you meet who don't smile from their heart. That doesn't portend well for your future with them.

When one is alert to what is happening, he has overstanding, that is, is able to look as if from above, what is going on. Overstanding provides information. Understanding implies inability to handle, or a being under what is affecting you. It's a word obviously designed by minds 'a few bricks short of a full load' or by dupers.."Look at the World, what should be done in it, look at your everyday affairs, see your feelings, look at them. Look, how your feelings are connected with the events. Why are you looking forward, why do you feel, why do your affairs go in such a way but not another? Why can the words 'another way' not be present in the World, since the World is single and it is various in its singularity? Why does the word 'single' mean variety? Feel the entire nature of phenomena in your specific case. Look at this case from all sides. Look at your organism and restore it with one mental moment. Look at your consciousness and make it able to solve all your issues. Look at your soul and see that everything has been available there for a long time."....Grigori Grabovoi.

Information modifies according to whether it is accepted.(belief).or rejected.(disbelief). Modification is change. Change in the Bible is called repentance.

One may want prosperity. That is the thought. But how does he make it happen? How does he bring the thought into formation? The thought is in the invisible. It's in his mind. He may think from all he may know at this time that has been put there by ego level thinking and so he may think that he should get a better job, or worse, go out and steal what he wants. But once he knows he has the option of higher consciousness ways, he understands how thoughts become things that cause no ill to anyone:.Romans 13:10.

"Every time you have an emotion or thought neuro-peptides.(neuro is 'nerve').are made in the brain, these chemical changes become attached to cells throughout the body. The processs can't be found, yet all we say and do comes out of it." ...Deepak Chopra. 

Point is, where your thought goes, a molecule goes. Your thoughts create molecules that influence your body.

If the question is "How can it be done?" realize the Creator is in you to the extent you allow His spiritual influence to act through you. What is then impossible? Act from this and do what you do in life the best you can and you will be brought to greater opportunities. "Men are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves. They therefore remain bound."....James Allen, essayist.(1864-1912).

Mentally refer to your vision occasionally during the day. You do not go into anyplace in life unless the emotion associated with it is part of you. You are where you are today because of the emotions you have agreed with as being true for you. Choose work that helps you grow younger, where time flies. Choose you passion. Your soul will lead you then to it.

Satisfaction comes from doing what you want to do. Do you know what you want to do in life? What do you have strong desires about? What are you good at? That is a starting point. The Infinite Mind knows all and will easily guide you if you ask for guidance. Use the ASK SUBY link at the bottom.

In all you do keep your vision firmly in mind. If you feel it, others will feel it too! And this encourages them without a spoken word about you knowing your heading in life. Possess the quiet assurance that you are wealthy in all areas of life. This conveys to all whom you may meet that you are advancing. This makes you a magnet because all progressively minded people desire wealth in some area of their lives. In some way provide increase to others. People are attracted to that which provides increase to them, that which increases the value they perceive in some way.

Make your own decisions in life, but doing it without running your ideas past others who.may have good advice for you is completely foolish:.Proverbs 11:14 ".....in the multitude of counselors there is safety.".This is one of the things to keep you from more trouble in life. Some people unable to learn from the experiences of others have to find out themselves:.Hebrews 5:14. This can waste much time and usually comes with its share of heartaches, such as it did for NHL legend Derk and for a king of ancient Israel:.1Kings 12:6-14.

But you do have to take anyone's advice into careful consideration:.2Chronicles 22:3,4 "...his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly. Wherefore he did evil in the sight of the LORD like the house of Ahab, for they were his counsellors after the death of his father to his destruction."

Smart employers know that a willing attitude to learn, coupled with people skills, are far more valuable than brilliant technical knowledge in the head of a jerk, because without people skills the atmosphere of a group can be wrecked.

Make a decision to love a career.(why?), a decision to develop fervent passion for it. Learn all you can about it. Consider an attitude such as David Balam has.

This may require a decision to change and become different from our normal self-centered and perhaps, obnoxious and unforgiving selves:.Ephesians 4:24 "And that you put on the new man, which after.('in line with').God is created in righteousness and true holiness.(or, holiness of truth)."

Young's Literal Translation.has it:."And to put on the new man, which, according to God was created in righteousness and kindness of the truth.(the truth is of kindness, love).".This new man can only be created in righteousness

Before taking a contract, changing jobs or moving, get away alone and think. Consider what this Ph.D..candidate came up with:."If I didn't find a job in my chosen field and ultimately became a postman, then this would be perfectly fine because I would do that work with a loving and joyful heart. That is what counts for me and not the money and fame from any other activity I would do without love. Having this short conversation with myself allowed all the stress and pressure for success to fall away and pulled me back to my centre again."....Melbourne, Australia.

Also write down the pros and cons.(what's good about where you are, what isn't and likewise where you are thinking of moving on to).on a piece of paper. Make decisions upon what you know, not upon what you temporarily may be feeling, however a persistent feeling should not be ignored. If entering into a contract, changing employers, locations, etc., allows you to better serve others, like providing for the family better, serving others more effectively, etc., then it's a good bet:.Matthew 23:11; Luke 22:26. Check AskSuby for more insight.

If it just adds more to the self, such as money, glory, position, etc., better leave it. Ask yourself why you want this opportunity.

Every job has problems and every person if not what you may have hoped for, so choose a career or a mate with what type of problems you enjoy solving.

If a job, find out what the problems of the job are, to see if you really are willing to tackle them. But if you keep hitting a brick wall every way you turn, then there are too many coincidences and the Creator is directing you somewhere for your betterment. Trust Him!

Many things can become traps to the negative:.Proverbs 17:24 "Wisdom is before him that has understanding, but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth.(or, "the grass always seems greener on the other side"; always looking beyond oneself).".Why that is often a trick!

Sometimes it is better to improve, becoming better qualified within what job you may now have. There is a key to improving...

By serving others, you will see what areas they may be weak in that require help. Most of what matters in life is that in all you do be sure it helps in some way, physical and/or spiritual and causes no disadvantage, no pain, no suffering, no negative in any way to another and/or others; even to your enemies:.Proverbs 16:7. Learn the golden rule.

Then the best help.(prayer and/or physical assistance).can be tailored once you have knowledge of their weaknesses. And, as an added benefit; you cannot be deceived by anyone towards whom you have their best interests at heart. Love gives you spiritual insight and guidance from the Creator.

Philippians 4:8 "Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, honest.(the word 'honest' in the original Greek), just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtue and praise,.think.on these things."

One must be alert: Paul says in Colossians 1:21 that the 'painful persuasions'.(original Greek for 'wicked works', as it is translated in the KJV of the Holy Bible).of the mind alienates one from God. No, the Creator is always right there with you. It is just that you always need to be right there with Him. How?
