“Pearls are formed inside the shell of certain mollusks as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant such as a parasite inside the shell, or an attack from outside, injuring the mantle tissue. The mollusk creates a pearl sac to seal off the irritation. Pearls are commonly viewed by scientists as a by-product of an adaptive immune system-like function.” (wikipedia.org) Genius. This same idea can be applied to all those irritants (traffic, people, co-workers, family, etc.) that come at us in everyday life. When an irritant comes along, you must pearl it. Enclose it with that ephemeral ether that you can magically conjure. Coat the irritant again and again until it is shiny and incapable of irritating you again. What once was only an irritant to you is now something very valuable. Since you have projected something valuable into the universe, something of value will come back to you. AND no karmic repercussions will be returned to you. Next time you are dealing with an irritant, pearl it.
