Life is not meant to be observed from under the shelter of the umbrella or awning, while we wait for the storm to pass. It is meant to be lived and embraced with full commitment to getting wet.
It can be hard to cultivate equanimity, the state of remaining calm and non-reactive. One way is by repeating this simple 5-word mantra.
We pay more attention to an occasional steam pipe explosion than the frequent explosions of anger, even though anger does more damage.
Suppressing anger will cause an explosion. Trying to control anger will let it control you. Instead, learn to effectively navigate anger.
Anger is a fire that consumes us. The only way to put the fire out is to feel the heat.
It starts in the heart, but like a cancerous cell, soon it’s growing everywhere. The cancer that infects you cannot be controlled with the mind.
