Have you ever imagined yourself holding hot coals in your hands and expecting relief?
Well, this is how we live in this world. Every day you see people getting angry, aggrieved and agitated and wish the worse to happen to the person who caused this plight to them. So how does this phenomenon work? When you get angry, your breathing pattern changes, your pulse beat changes, your heart starts beating erratically and your blood circulation gets affected. In short, your internal system gets messed up for as long as this emotion takes over. It takes a few hours thereafter for your pulse and heart and blood flow to normalize. Imagine how many times are you subjecting yourself through this turmoil thinking you are punishing this person by giving it attention and getting heard. But actually, you are only putting yourself through the furnace and burning. The way to relieve yourself is to drop those hot coals. So easy, yet the hardest act for us of letting go. It does not mean you forgive that person, it only means you free yourself from that burn. You can then think and act objectively from a better place than you were.
Do you have wounds caused by grief, hurt or anger, that get worse each time you rub them?
When you create distance, they will heal and reveal gifts for you.
