In moments of inner struggle, conceptualize the highest truth related to the subject you are able and focus all of your attention on it.
Often, in times of inner turmoil we place our focus on altering or distracting ourselves from the unpleasant emotion itself. Unfortunately, the experience is the effect of a prior cause and not the root cause of the experience itself.
The root cause is a thought or concept we are holding as truth in our inner world that is discordant or a catalyst or seed for suffering.
By shifting your mind's focus to a higher truth you essentially lure your human to focus on a thought that generates a much more positive experience.
I believe that the most mundane things in life are just as holy as the most powerful mystical experiences.
