Creating Waves of Awareness
Revenge, the desire to get even, is the purest of all emotions , which is difficult to remove from ones mind. No matter how many years have passed, this emotion always recollects the bad event that occurred in the past. And, no matter how kind a person becomes later in life, the mind always seeks revenge.
After treating hundreds of patients with different emotions like grief, fear, jealousy, heart-broken love, etc., only this one emotion called revenge just can't be treated.
Each and every person has experienced this emotion some time in life. It lays dormant somewhere in the mind just waiting for action, either by a physical retribution or maybe just in a thought.
No wonder we find countries continue long wars or some act of injustice by the government or a person is remembered for many years.
The important thing is its so strong that even some one hurt you in childhood it's easy to recollect the full incidence of that person or situation after many, many years.
