The good news is that most of this clearing up is an easy fix. I can go into my smart phone and shut down all the apps that are running in the background, I can do a clean sweep of my computer and clear out the extra baggage. If i have a virus I can clear it out (or hire someone to do that for me!) and get everything running smoothly again.
Well all that background noise in the computer/phone is much like resentments that we carry around. It is extra baggage that is always runnig in the background. And yes it is taking up precious, valuable space in our thoughts, hearts and feelings. When I find I am upset about a situation I tend to ruminate on it for hours, days and sometimes weeks. It consumes my thoughts and steals my energy. If i don't do something to resolve my resentment it will eventually become less prominent in my daily thoughts but it is always running in the background. Anytime i think about the resentment or maybe even come across the resentment in my daily life it rears its ugly head again and becomes front and center in my mind.
Plus these feelings keeps me connected to that person, place or thing that I am holding the resentment to. Much like the app that is running in the background always trying to get connected to the internet or find my location it is always keeping me connected to the app. So whatever it is I am feeling a resentment towards I am still connected on an energetic level.
Now when I am angry at a situation or person the last thing I want is to keep connected to them. In my mind that is the best reason to let the resentment go and move on. Why oh why would I ever want to stay connected giving that resentment any of my life energy?
