Hi Curt,

I like this saying. This proverb reminds me of some material I was reading last weekend. I've been digging into Ken Wilber lately and was reading some excerpts from his book No Boundary (pg. 109-116).

His description of how stress and tension occurs is very interesting. When people feel angry or hostile, their default reaction is to let that anger out. If you surpress this emotion, you're also surpressing the physical action and muscles associated with the usual discharge.

"Rather, you must use some of your muscles to hold back the action of some of your other muscles. What results is a war of muscles. Half of your muscles struggle to discharge the hostility by striking out, while the other half strain to prevent just that. It's like stepping on the gas with one foot and the brake with the other. The conflict ends in a stalemate, but a very tense one, with large amounts of energy expended with a net movement of zero."

Thanks Aarthi. I'm glad you're finding them the posts beneficial. :-)

Eric, that's a great analogy. Hoo boy do I know that feeling all too well. Still working on enlightenment - I figure I'll be there next Thursday by lunch time. ;-) OK, maybe not.

Thanks for sharing it.
