BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, May 11th, 2011 by Lily Fairchilde in SONG OF THE PHOENIX

“Hatred, vengeance, guilt, and self-condemnation are toxic emotions which feed on the inability to forgive. They weaken the body, mind and soul. Love strengthens; it heals and makes you whole. To prove this to yourself, take a moment to go within. Think of someone, or some situation, that you have not been able or willing to forgive. Feel the heaviness of this, the contracted tension, the darkness. Now, move your focus to someone or something you feel great love for. Allow yourself to experience the warmth, the elation, the calm peace you find there. If you had a choice – and you do – which place would you rather be in?”

Lily Fairchilde, in “Song of the Phoenix”
