With all the different emotions that are within us, it’s sometimes can be hard to keep the hurt feelings from surfacing. The things people say and do can make it difficult to remain calm. When we keep the peace in a time where we normally would slash back, is the most strength one could hold. By showing peace to the other person is showing them that you have better judgement on emotional outburst. To feel the emotion and remain calm is learning we can overcome it. We gain strength each time we do. By not adding coals to the flame is by far a better choice. I have had to tell myself these same words in times of trial. By learning to control my sensitivity towards others and know that they may be going through greater challenges than myself. This helps me maintain kindness and calmness with in me. We all have stressful times. But by knowing we have control over the outcome of our feelings is a great achievement. We can take charge of things and turn them around to make for a better situation. Now that’s a powerful idea.
There was a time at work when someone was not in a very good mood. Which I believe we have all come across this situation a time or two in our lives. At that point I let my emotions get in the way, but I did not say anything to them. But instead, I let it sit heavy on my heart. My sensitive side took over and began to make my day miserable. Well, luckily my day was almost over. I would not say anything about the person’s name to anyone else. This would start a small flame with other co workers. It’s almost like gossip. My day ended and I had to stop to get gas in my car. When I pulled up and got out. I looked down and there was a peace sign drawn on the cement right below the driver’s side. That was the beginning of a sign for my heart. I walked over to pay for the gas and went back to the car to start filling up. As I began to fill the car up, I looked at the ground again. I said Peace and looked up at the clouds and noticed a formation of “&”. Then I said peace and love. Then a figure of a smiling cat formed. So my words were correct (Clairvoyance) and my heaviness in my heart was lifted. Sometimes, it’s best to let it go and work with your feelings instead of starting a flame.
We create our world around us and everything we do makes us accountable in our actions. It’s all in the tone of our voices and what comes out of our mouths. This will determine the outcome of life’s little test. Just by walking away for a while to gather better words and tone will make a huge difference in how you respond to them. I feel we have enough stress in this life time of all we have to learn. Also all of what we have to go through to learn of new paths in our lives. The stress of hard times can be avoided as long as we hold confidence in our hearts to know the hard time will go away. They really and truly do go away. By keeping a positive attitude and never giving up is the key to overcoming tribulations. We all go through different stages in our lives that we have to experience. It’s apart of our paths on this plane call Earth. We all go through the hard and good times. It’s all in what we have to learn in order to help the next person and to help us in our next life time. There will come a time when someone will be going through what you have over come. Then you can instill in their hearts that it’s temporary, and that things will get better.
When we learn to get along with each other, we set the course of our lives to a peaceful path. With each step of getting better in our judgement and continuance of learned lessons. We further our knowledge of our self’s and our emotions. One by one, we create a peaceful world. One by one, we gather the greatest of good karma.
