Don’t let your pulse race. Don’t let your temperature rise. Those are the tell-tale signs your spirit is overheating. And when it does, like a car, you’re on the verge of a breakdown – of losing control – of saying things you don’t mean and haven’t thought about.
Whoever of you loves life
and desires to see many good days,
keep your tongue from evil…
Turn from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.
Like a bloodhound.
When your heart starts pounding, let it beat out different words. Tell the other person how you feel. “I’m getting really pissed off right now and I don’t know why but I’m about to go bananas and I don’t want to.” It diffuses the tension inside you and usually makes the other person back down a bit. Even though it’s weird.
Do whatever you need to do to avoid evil.
