In the left hand, we have love and peace.
In the right hand, we have pain and hurt.
Both sides are within us.
To know yourself is to know that the feelings of pain and hurt are within you as well as the feelings of love and peace.
To know yourself is to no longer get surprised when feelings of anger or sadness come up…
They’re actually expected to surface now and then, in fact anticipated.
To know yourself is to know how to attract positive energy back into your life when you are experiencing negative thoughts and feelings.
When you feel anger boil up – maybe someone’s driving slow on the road for example – are we letting the feeling of anger take over? Or are we taking a breather and letting it go?
Simply knowing both the pain and the peace are within you may give you a sense of relief.
You’re no longer fighting against the current…
You’re flowing with the tide.
