The moment you begin to lose respect for the other person, you begin to lose your love.
You can peacefully hold your anger- you can breathe in, and breathe out, you can either have the energy of anger, or the energy of mindfulness. The energy of mindfulness continues to be generated by the practice of mindful breaths and mindful walking and it begins to penetrate the zone of the angry energy. Bring mindfulness to your anger.
There is no fighting in this practice.
Your anger is not the enemy, it’s part of you.
It’s not good to do violence to yourself. Do not say “ mindfulness is good, and anger is evil, and good must fight evil.” In the tradition of mindfulness, there’s not a battle to be won. We must be very patient.
They continue to generate the energy of mindfulness and tenderly embrace our anger; we will find some relief. But we can do more.
We can also look deeply into the nature of our anger and find its roots.
