Seed: Five Simple Rules for Happiness I
I read the germs for the next five Seeds in a catalogue.
Five Simple Rules for Happiness. The first is . . . Free your heart from hatred.
Hatred is one of the world’s greatest poisons, far more powerful than arsenic or hemlock. The reason is because the other two I mentioned poison the body, but hatred poisons the soul.
Ever thought of your heart being in chains? Consider Old Marley, he who is Dead as a Doornail, rattling and dragging myriad chains from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. He says, “These are the chains I forged in life.”
Hatred forges chains. And what are chains but links to that which one hates? Freeing your heart from hatred releases those chaining bonds setting both you and the other free.
Can you picture an old-fashioned gas tank siphon? Put it into your heart and siphon off any hatred lurking there. What happiness comes from a free heart!
