I’ve had temptations to feel pride, as well temptations to go to the devil and call him lord, and I feel something inside my chest that pulls me there, to say and think such things. Likewise, I feel the love of God after a good time praying. Well, to be truthful, I haven’t felt it in two years, since I entered this high period of scrupulosity and was convinced I was hellbound for compulsive thoughts.
Am I alone, in having these feelings? Is it all mental? I once escaped from these thoughts before and thought of them and had the feeling, but I was able to brush it off and say no, whatever.
