Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.~ Jung
Never get angry, even with someone who has deliberately and maliciously harmed you. You should be grateful to such a person for helping you to purify past negative actions, to increase your determination to be free from samsara and to develop love and compassion. ~ Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
I will say this is such great and true advice. Yet I cannot say I never get angry….but I do have less ‘reasons’ for anger which I attribute to reducing my ‘self’/ego.’
The wise have mastered body, word, and mind. They are the true masters. ~ The Buddha
Om mani padme hung
My son, while on a hiking trip, took this lovely photo.
May all sentient beings be happy and have the causes of happiness.
May sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all sentient beings never be separated from the happiness that is free from suffering.
May all sentient beings abide in equanimity, free from attachment and detachment.
An affectionate disposition not only makes the mind more peaceful and calm, but it affects our body in a positive way too. ~ His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama
