The Running Just Puts a Plaster on a Sore
Kept it inside, didn't tell no one else
Didn't even want to admit it to yourself
And now your chest burns and your back aches
From 15 years of holding the pain
And now you only have yourself to blame
If you continue to live this way
Get it together
You want to heal your body
You have to heal your heart
Whatsoever you sow you will reap
Get it together - India Arie
You want to heal your body? you have to heal your heart! Seems simple doesn't it?
For me, sometimes I think I have healed certain wounds, of course, not being around much people, it would seem that all is fine and dandy, not opening my heart, how would I know?
Relationships are our biggest teachers, especially the intimate ones, it reflects whether or not there are old wounds within that did not heal, those that were sitting dormant. It's like when someone passes and hit a sore and it pops right open, that shit hurts, you scream, you squirm. In life that can mean pushing people away, showing your dark side, disappearing, running, hiding through drugs, sex, shopping, mind numbing activities
And then the illness comes......
You want to heal your body? you have to heal your heart! - Simple
Start with acceptance of what is
then move on to forgiving yourself
then forgiving others
the running - it only puts a plaster on the sore
