Working upon our respective bodies

We work upon our physical body by governing our behaviour, including our speech.

We work upon our emotional body by controlling our emotions, through understanding them and regulating them, remembering that emotion follows thought, so emotion is not controlled by exerting the will directly upon emotion, but by the will through the mind – it is via thought that emotion is controlled.

We work upon the mental body by cultivating and practicing sensible thought, such as exercising reason and logical thinking.

And we work upon our foundation body by subjecting our values/importances/priorities to our judgement, that is, by weighing and comparing the importance of things to one another and being aware of our priorities, and being able to re-assess and re-arrange our values/importances/priorities as our judgement improves.
