He was injured. He felt hurt. He felt like punching back. But he wondered whether that was the right thing to do. Maybe if he let some time pass, the person would realize himself. Or maybe he should withdraw from the person. He was hurt. He was angry within. But he did not know whether to express his anger outside. These are the tough choices we need to make in our daily life.
The choice between anger, revenge, silence, withdrawal, or forgiveness.
Only an injury tests your inner spirit. It's a test. Your reaction will be judged. And as you give this test time and again, you may learn the skill to handle it with greater skill. Light may flow through your soul.
Light flows through an injury.
