The Battlefield Of Our Own Soul

Think of the many times a day that negativity arises. You are cut off in traffic and a little light goes off in the back of your brain. You seethe and seek to retaliate. Your blood pressure rises. Your heart beats faster. This is not what the doctor recommends when he says give your heart some exercise! Wouldn't it be wonderful if such disruptions never occurred? It can happen, of course. It is entirely up to us. We decide if violence and anger will control us, or peace and love. No one has to describe the benefits of living a life of peace over one of war. It is the same on the battlefields of the world and in the battlefield of our own soul. It is just that we must always fight for a positive view point, if we're caught in that vicious cycle of bipolar disorder.
