When I am running towards something, I am running towards it because I want it. It's calling me, not because I’m trying to get away from something else. I’m running towards something because it is exciting. If you're running a race or you're running a marathon you're not trying to get away from something you're just trying to get to the end of the race so that you can get the prize that's at the end of the line. So running towards something has positive emotions attached to it. Running towards something means I have hope, running towards means I have eagerness, and I am looking forward to getting there - running towards it means I love where I’m going.
Running towards something means there is excitement about it; running away from something means there is fear – “I hope it doesn't catch me”.
When you have a fight or flight response that comes from being low on the emotional scale because you're trying to get away, it's a very different feeling from you're excited, and you're looking forward to something.
If you just stop when you're trying to make a decision about staying or leaving, about doing this or that and ask yourself “am I running away from something or am I running towards something - which one am I doing?” Then listen for the answer and if you find yourself running away, then stop and do the emotional work to go up the emotional scale.
towards something you feel elated, and we know from the teachings of Abraham that nothing good comes from feeling depleted.
