Are you mad at someone? Do you feel anger towards those who hold a different set of beliefs (religious, political..)?? We don’t always know people’s stories and background. We were all raised a little differently. Instead of holding anger inside for those you think are total asshole, try sending them compassion and love instead. This takes a huge weight off ourselves. We all deserve it. This isn’t easy but see what happens.
Life is full of shitheads we don’t see eye to eye with. Loving those who drive us crazy boosts our willpower and inner strength.
Visually sending love builds our immune system and increases cardiovascular health while providing warm, fuzzy feelings. And who does it harm? Anger is a normal emotion. However, frequent, high levels of anger tend to weaken the heart, stiffen the arteries, increase levels of cortisol (adrenaline hormone) and basically cause our physical body to deteriorate. It also disturbs our mental tranquility.
Some scientists think that chronic anger may be more dangerous than smoking and obesity!
Be inspired by the Dalai Lama. He sends compassion to everyone, even those who continue to invade his country and torture the beautiful people of Tibet.
While researching the benefits of sending love, I found more info on “how to get love.” Strange. Is it really more important to receive love than to give it? That makes me angry, but not too angry.
Instead of storing madness in our precious bodies, go outside and scream really loud. This really works! Get that shit out already!
Remember- “Hatred is an acid that does more harm to the vessel in which it’s stored, than to the object on which it’s poured.”
