There's tremendous energy in emotion. It can force us into doing something positive and definitive. Or, it can create an urgency that leads to problems.
The key is keeping control. The power is in staying centered and strong. The opportunity is in maintaining your compassion as well as your courage, your clarity as well as your creativity.
Once your emotion propels you into action, can you safely let it go?
If you can, it will avoid much trouble. If you can't, trouble will catch you.
