Healthy Liver Blood
• When one has enough liver blood there is a .e&ible resiliency
on the inside.
• Gou respond to inHustice with benevolence and vision' rather
than personal inHury
• Gou note trespasses with a strength that does not need to
oppose
• Gou are able to yield and return. Gou can forgive a trespass
• When you have enough blood you don,t care if someone says
or does something that,s not right. Gou are very .e&ible and
forgiving
• 0(urn the other chee'2 is teaching us to cultivate so much
self esteem-liver blood on the inside' that when a trespass
occurs there is essentially nothing to forgive
• When there is enough blood there is Isthesia 7anesthesia
without the an 7not88. Isthesia is the fullness of internal
sensation without the need for reaction.
• When esthesia is present' if a trespass occurs in your
personal space there is no oEense taen. Why? Because
there,s no real inHury. Gou have enough substance to stay in
the present and you Hust say hi' you,re on my toe
• (he amount of blood you have partially determines the
amount of self5esteem you e&perience.
