Do you hold any grudges? Think about that for a moment. A grudge can
lay hidden, sometimes for years. Think for a moment.
If you have found one, think about the person you hold that grudge
against. Notice how you feel as you imagine their face. Feel that hurt
– just for a moment.
Now imagine that person as a child. See them playing, running,
laughing. See them falling and hurting their knee. Imagine you go to
that child and you ease their pain, comfort their tears. You help them
to their feet. You rub their hurt knee.
Imagine they stop crying and return to playing. See if the feelings
you had about that person have changed at all.
There is a small child in every one of us.
