Paolo Coelho recently described going in to Santiago and the journey, I really loved reading this article about the camino:
Tomorrow is 11.11.11 where I will burn paper in the fires of Finestere. Some people burn clothes but I wanted to write a list of all the things I was angry about to burn away. This is what I came up with instead...
To Burn at Finistere Fires
"When you're being pushed towards anger, HAVE MERCY (for in Latin Mercy is 'Love for the miserable')"
My anger, like high waves of the sea has risen high for many people...
-When I act like a five year old having a tantrum
-When I lean to situations I really don't like for the illusion of pleasing another
-When I listen to others negativity without mercy but with judgement that their pain is less than mine
It is not with these people that I am angry but how I´ve acted towards them in these ways that my anger rises to burn me. I now wish to burn away these reactions that cause my hurtful anger.
