Anger, Contemplation, and Meditation - 13jan23
Anger, like a flame-thrower, flows from our most primal, survival drives. We repress it or indulge it, at our peril. However we can harness its raw energy. The next time you’re angry recite or chant this quatrain three times:
“How could stressors
give us the precious opportunity
to bring dependence into compassion’s path
and change into the path of letting-go?”
You could perform the four contemplations that follow, four times each, silently reciting the first half of each contemplation as you inhale, and the second half as you exhale:
How could resistance/ increase stress?
How could this chance/ be quite precious?
How could those hurt/ wound others?
How could this/ never last?
Still angry? Then practice brisk walking meditation… like a Jedi.
