response to temptation

Responding with right-minded thoughts to the temptation to engage in egoic thinking. According to the Course, whenever we notice any kind of upset, we should have a habit of instantly responding with a right-minded thought, especially our Workbook idea for the day. The phrase is introduced in the Text (see T-31.III.1:3) and used (with variations) in the Workbook. It denotes a crucial element of Course practice.
