― Thich Nhat Hanh
Many times I find myself unable to let go of anger when someone offends me. The human side of me screams for revenge and satisfaction.
I find myself searching for answers when the whole time I was forgetting one very important thing "He does not need punishment; he needs help"
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned"
I find myself holding on to hot Coals only to find i am hurting even more now because i have hold on so much pain and anger.
Anger is not bad, we are human and it is part of they experience of being human that we have and feel anger,
It is how we express this anger that is what matters.
When i am angry i try to look into my anger and ask where is it coming from? who is it aimed at? what can be done about it? and what will be done that i can make this experience helping me to become a better person for it.
I have many friends I do not wish to hurt them or punish them for when they offend me most of the time they do not really understand that what they have done has given me anger.
we are human we make mistakes we lose track of what it is that is most important we sometimes is blind but in all of this what is the point in fighting? or hurting? or getting revenge? or saying " now we are no longer friends " do you think this is help you at all? in any way?
No for now you have less friends, more pain inside and you do not feel peace
Let us drop our Hot Coals today and embrace peace and love for eachother
Let us today remember our friends not what they have done to offend us but remember only they are a friend who once you were happy to see.
Problems can always be work out.
we will have problems always this will never change but what use is it if you have no friend to go to in you problems and say please let me lean on you for today i am weak and need strong friends.
you will not always be strong let us lean on eachother and hold eachother up.
Come GFC drop your hot coals
