BEST of PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, July 15th, 2008 by Deepak Chopra in THE WAY OF THE WIZARD

“For a newborn baby the problem of holding on to ‘bad’ or unhealthy feelings doesn’t exist. The instant you throw something negative into a baby’s environment, it will cry or turn away. This is an extremely healthy reaction, because by expressing itself so freely, a baby can discharge energies that would otherwise cling to it.

As we grew up, however, we learned that it isn’t always appropriate to indulge in spontaneous expression. In the name of politeness and tact, or knowing our place, or doing what our parents said, each of us learned to hold on to negative energies. We became batteries with longer and longer shelf lives, until now as adults we hold on to anger, resentment, frustration, and fear that are years old. Worst of all, we have forgotten the instinct for discharging our batteries.”

Deepak Chopra, in “The Way of the Wizard”
