Let the loop run itself out

Let the loop run itself out

This discussion / thought was based on an interview on “Super Soul Sunday”, one of my favorite TV shows. The interview was with Dr. Jill, author of the book “The stroke of Insight” on her experience after suffering a massive stroke and functioning from her right hemisphere of brain. This hemisphere helps on the bigger picture and as Pranav observed in meditation we want the right hemisphere to lead us instead of the ego-self on the left hemisphere. Talking about anger, Dr. Jill referred to “Let the loop run itself out”.


For most negative emotions, it takes 90 seconds for chemicals to be generated and released. If we can just let 90 seconds pass and let the loop run out, we would technically control our reactions. Dr. Jill further elaborated that people are angery for years as they trigger a memory thus triggering the loop to begin again.



My learnings hence are – a) Let the loop run out and b) Control your thoughts on not to trigger the loop. For me, I do have a clears sense of self-awareness and repentence as I get caught in the loop. This is more relevant right now with my 2014 resolution of overacting less. Let the loop run itself out!


90 seconds

Is all I ask

To let the loop run out


90 seconds

Of forbearance

Of control

Of patience

Of forgiveness

Of love


90 seconds

…a lifetime

To let the loop run out
