It's not fair. Why did they get the larger room, more frequent visits, numerous holidays, and fancy vehicles? Not that I am jealous you understand, but I cannot bare rich people these days. I know this sounds awful, but I hope that something bad happens to them. It will serve them right for being so high and mighty, and thinking they are so wonderful. Since they have become more affluent they seem to have changed, and not for the good, in my opinion. I feel like screaming from the rooftops at them. I am not in the slightest bit interested in their successes, or take any interest in their lives, as they are far too pompous. After all, who cares?
Holly has helped me to open up my heart and to see things from a more compassionate outlook. I now realize they have worked hard and have a certain number of sacrifices to have made. Good for them. One must live and let live, and be happy for those around us.
The white and pinkish flowers on the Holly bush are so delicate, but yet surrounded by spiked prickly leaves that turn into red plump berries. The plant's makeup is very much like the Holly person, who has prickly outer layers, but can be compassionate and have a soft heart.

Holly is the remedy for very negative, aggressive feelings directed at others - feelings such as hatred, suspicion, envy, spite. The basic problem is an absence of love, and the remedy works to encourage our generosity of spirit and an openness towards others.
