Temptation is an Opportunity

"Temptation is an opportunity to make a choice." Bruce

Very recently I was criticized by a close family member for an action I had taken. For several hours over two days my mind whirled with anger and resentment. I filled my mind with arguments and challenges with that person. These thoughts progressed to images of a physical altercation in which, of course, I won the fight. I blamed him for my upset stomach.

All of this was taking place in my mind. I invested hours of my time and emotion to this "temptation" to be right, to be the winner, to teach him a lesson.
