How can you Heal a Broken Heart
Let us resist the efforts of fools to make of grief a pathology. For healthy mammals (like you and I) grief comes naturally: our over-brains have evolved to treasure relationships.
Buddha’s techniques could empower us to make peace with the monster of grief (though it threaten to eat us whole).
The Anapanasati Sutta could inspire us to contemplate four rhetorical questions:
FIRST “This grieving… how changing?”
SECOND “This grieving… how fading?”
THIRD “This grieving… how ceasing?”
FOURTH “Notice grief… releasing!”
Practice these four contemplations, at the top of EVERY waking hour, four rounds each, in harmony with your breathing. And within a week you could know greater peace.
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
