An intuitive sensitivity to both negative and positive phases manifests itself naturally to him at one stage on the path. Certain drawbacks cannot be helped because the same sensitivity which makes him aware of the finer things also makes him aware of their opposites. To correct this condition a twofold process is needed. First he must strengthen the idea of the spiritual centre within himself as providing a kind of gravitational spot upon which his consciousness should revolve. Second, the moment the negative awareness arises he must be able to switch his attention instantaneously to an altogether different subject. The second part does not mean that he is totally to ignore the negative awareness but that he is to recognize it for what it is. He must understand whence it emanates, comprehend its character and place, and be guarded as to what action, if any, is to be taken; but when he has done this, as in a flash, he must switch attention elsewhere.
