Daily Dose Of Emmet Fox

It is your mental consent, remember, that constitutes your

diet. Suppose you witness an accident or an act of injustice let us say

— instead of reacting with pity or indignation, refuse to accept the

appearance at its face value; do anything that you can to right

matters, give it the right thought, and let it go at that. You will still be

on the diet.

Of course, it will be very helpful if you can take steps to avoid meeting

during this week anyone who seems particularly likely to arouse the

devil in you. People who get on your nerves, or rub you up the wrong

way, or bore you, are better avoided while you are on the diet; but if it

is not possible to avoid them, then you must take a little extra

discipline — that is all.

Suppose that you have a particularly trying ordeal before you next

week. Well, if you have enough spiritual understanding you will know

how to meet that in the spiritual' way; but, for our present purpose, I

think I would wait and start the diet as soon as the ordeal is over. As I
said before, do not take up the diet lightly, but think it over well first.
