Balance Between the Heart and Head
As emotions are raw, we seek to find balance between the heart and the head. We ALL know what is the good and right thing to do, but when we let our emotions lead the way, we tend to do things that we should not or would not necessarily do or say while in a calm and controlled state. Every thing we go through in life is to teach us a lesson, to help us grow. What we choose to do with those lessons, is up to us. We can become hardened, hateful and vengeful, allowing it to eat us up inside. Or, we can take those lessons and allow it to make us better, more compassionate human beings. With the latter, we have better control over those emotions and can take that to others. Would it not be better to use your skills and experiences to help ease someone else's pain, rather than join in that pain with them and keep ripping away the scabs, so they never heal. Lying down and wallowing with someone else in pain does not help them. Holding them up and allowing your pain and healing to guide them, that is compassion and love. Without compassion and love, we, as the human race, will crumble into a pit of despair and hopelessness. Fear and pain are HEAVY. Hope is light and buoyant. I choose love and compassion. Please join me in my journey to spread compassion and love and put an end to the tragedies that seem to be accumulating and will soon engulf us and define us as humans.
