Theth — Pain
When there is doubt and anxiety in your life remember that your negative thoughts are in your control. They may seem like demons with a life of their own, but you have power over them. Difficult times often occur when we are actually making great spiritual progress. We are constantly being tested, and we grow stronger. So we say, “good, here comes more trouble and I am going to win!” And remember, demons dissolve in the face of laughter.
He — Prayer
Allow yourself to surrender to the Divine Spirit that supports all Creation. Offer your own love back to the source, so that your own thoughts go out to all other creatures.

Do not wait with any expectation, but just allow the light of the Divine to open itself in your heart, like a flower.
Mem — Perfection
When you reach a special moment, when everything feels perfect, do not try to freeze the moment or you will block the flow that moves you towards greater things.

Allow everything to BE and you will realise that everything has its own perfection.

Nun — The Past
Recognise the past as a stepping-stone on your way to the present. Avoid too much looking back, either to good things or bad things. Do not allow your guilt over things past to hold you back. We have to learn from our mistakes, but we should never beat ourselves up; we need to recognise that no one makes any spiritual progress without making mistakes.
