i want to share with you a powerful


story about a snake in a song


before you question what a snake and the


soul has to do with your life


it is about much more than a snake


in the soul it's about what happens to


us


when we react in anger it's about what


happens to us


when we hold on to resentment and when


we don't let go


of negative emotions it's about what can


happen to us


when we want negative things to happen


to others


so the story is this


one night after closing time a snake


found its way inside a home improvement


store


as the snake slithered around it clipped


itself on a handsaw


it was lying on the ground thinking the


saw was a threat


the snake instantly snapped around and


bit the saw of course


this caused much more damage with the


snake cutting inside


its mouth not understanding what was


happening


and thinking the saw was an enemy the


snake wrapped his


long body around the song attempting to


suffocate


of course the snake didn't do any damage


to the salt



instead ended up being killed


by the sharp blade of the salt the snake


ended up being killed by its own anger


by his own reaction to something


it thought was out to get it there's a


powerful message here


often we react in anger when we think


others


have hurt us and when we assume that


others are out to get us


we react when we don't need to we hold


on to resentment


and sometimes we hope the other gets


hurt


but in doing so we only end up hurting


ourselves


the negative energy we carry around when


we hold on to these resentments


and negative feelings only makes us


suffer


never the person we might want to suffer


when we're reacting anger


rather than with compassion no one wins


when we snap back we can't win


it is always better to ignore negativity


it's always better to let go of negative


feelings toward others and rather focus


on creating


the best life we can for ourselves


if someone does us wrong rather than


react angrily


maybe we should try to understand where


that person is coming from


show some compassion maybe they are


having a bad day


maybe all of their days are bad when we


look at things from a new perspective



it is much easier to move leaving all


negative energy behind


holding on does nothing good for our


future we must let go


we must move on before the anger


consumes us and ruins us


like a slave don't react


instead show compassion


don't hold on instead


moving and rather focus on creating the


best life we can


for ourselves


you
