If your center is not strong then emotion controls you. Your emotions will control you, also other people’s emotions will control you.

If your center is strong you can quickly digest your emotions and other peoples’ emotions. Then you can function in a way that is beneficial. If we eat food and don’t digest it then it sits in our stomach and becomes rotten. Then the whole body has a problem. If you have some thinking or emotion and cannot digest it than your life become a problem. If you digest food then it becomes energy, then you can do many things. If you digest your emotion or thinking that also becomes fresh energy. You can do anything. You can’t do this just by thinking about it. So practice is very important.
