The Zahir

Have been reading The Zahir by Paulo Coelho. The gist of his books are always of a journey of self discovery – of finding personal legends, understanding the nature of love, destiny, choice and all the unexplained but overexplained stuff. This one was about personal history and the need to lot go. To let go of the ghosts of the past, demons of the future – the Zahirs of your life.
At a seminar about wellness I went to on Saturday learnt or rather relearnt one thing. Emotions will always come. Sometimes they are sad, sometimes happy, sometimes wrenching, sometimes guilt. The trick is to not resist them when they come or hold on to them. They have some of their own accord and they will go too.
Tried this – If emotions can control your breath – your breath can control your emotions. I tried it and it worked – at least today!
