Those who are free of resentful thoughts, surely find peace. ~ Buddha

This one is difficult, especially in our difficult world. But, if we can learn to set our hate and resentment aside, just think of the peaceful world we’d have. A bit idealistic, I know. But, it’s nice to think about.

Good night and Namaste!


About Tamara Hoerner (1268 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. Resentment, like regret, like anger, like fear, is something to be felt, noted for its lesson, and released. Easy? No, but worth the practice.


  2. Yes – it is difficult!


  3. I’m working on identifying and naming my resentments and fears right now. It’s rough but I know that I have to pierce that painful before the healing can take place.


  4. I don’t feel resentment. I have felt anger and rage and hate but I don’t allow myself to feel it for long.


I'd love to know what you think!
