For as long I can remember, I felt a deep internal pull to ease pain in the world. My most memorable emotion when I was a baby was sadness and some sensations of frustration. When feelings began manifesting into thoughts, I can vividly remember being absolutely mortified when I realized that some people were mean and there was danger and injustice on the planet. So, I began my unending search to find a way to bring healing, peace and love to myself and the world.
Scary???!! Right!! Are you sure you want to delve into this subject matter? I hope so! As humans, it is the scariest emotion that we have. As spiritual beings, it is clearly the hardest to face (keep reading, because I am going to tell a story after my comments about jealousy).
As a part of our journey on the spiritual path, each of us have had to (or will have to) become deeply aware of and educated about each of our emotions; sadness, fear, anger, loneliness, rage and jealousy. We have to experience these emotions in an exaggerated fashion for many reasons that actually benefit us.
